WELCOME! I put some candy in my old salt cellar. We had some chips and dip and other snacks on the buffet so everyone could snack while waiting to eat.I tried a new desert this year. This is ginger pumpkin cheesecake. Everyone loved it!This is a ten pound 7 layer chocolate cake! YUM! I could eat it all. Bingo was a blast. We got down to the last prize and the last number I called caused a three way tie. The guys were chasing each other around trying to grab it. It was so funny. We had to play a tie breaker. Wes won a can of lifesavers.
Mom won twice. She got a Charlie Brown DVD.

Aaron won twice. He got some candy here.

Austin won a 'grow your own lump of coal'. Funny thing is-he helped me pick this gag gift out and then he ended up picking it. LOL.

Here we are playing. The boys got Rock Band for the Xbox today. They have been having a blast. They are still playing here behind me. All these bodies in this room it feels like 95 degrees in here! Mom is the best singer! I brought the house down.
OH, yeah, my niece Bridgette- she won three times and then quit playing because the boys were all afraid she was going to win them all.
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Your day looks fabulous! What a fun, loving family you have, you are truly blessed! You're right, we had very similar days, except we didn't have prizes for the games, I think I will do that next time!

You are truly blessed! When do you start decorating for Christmas? I started just a little last night and will finish tonight and tomorrow.
