Our friends Randy and Shira normally host a nice Thanksgiving dinner for a bunch of our friends--there are usually six or seven families there. This year, however, they celebrated the arrival of their son Amos just a few days before Thanksgiving, so Andy and Theresa hosted the event at their home on Cleveland. All the usual suspects were in attendance, as was the tablecloth we all sign every year (signatures date back about 10 years now) and the journal in which everyone records that year's thanks.
After dinner at Andy and Theresa's, we headed over to Ron's grandmother's house for desert with his family. It was a smaller gathering than usual--just the in-town folks--but fun as usual . . . although we were both too full to actually EAT any desert.
We got together with my family (Mom, Dad, Brian, Margaret, and Cody) on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Met up a Sprague's in Portville and had a great dinner, along with great conversation. It's so rare that we all seem to get together--but Christmas is in the works, so it won't be so long before we see them all again!
