We hosted Thanksgiving at our home this year, and I was so pleased to have both sides of my family here. The Greeks and the Rednecks. Ha! No really, it was a wonderful time. Dad asked me if he could fry the turkey, and I couldn't say no. It turned out delicious. We were all a little worried at first because of the charred skin, but the inside was certainly tasty. We had all the trimmings, of course. Mom made her famous yeast rolls, and the rest of us girls did the sides. Oh, the DESERT BAR!!!! We ate at 1:00, then watched football, ate some more, then played football. Amanda Lily and Sophie put on a Thanksgiving show for our entertainment, and Uncle Pete accompanied them on the drums. Then Amanda Lily played a few Christmas carols. (video at bottom) Our friends Heather and Mia, and Aunt Heather's step Father George joined us. We were thankful to be surrounded by friends and family.
