It was a lovely Thanksgiving celebration last Thursday with friends….7 adults and 10 children, plus Kelly the dog, and Charlie the cat.  So much GOOD food.  I had to try just a little of everything, and oh so yummy.  After dinner we all went out for a walk then back for the two birthday gals to open cards and gifts.  Then it was time for the desserts and blow out the candles.
