Mom and Dad hosted our Thanksgiving dinner again this year, with help from my sister, Julie and I. We had 13 for dinner, plus a take-out for Peter's mom, and plenty of left-overs.
Take a peak at our Thanksgiving!

|our NEW tradition: paper plates!!!!!!!|
So, after all these years, we finally wised up and bought throw-away dinnerware. We'll never, ever, ever......use china again! We are even talking about ditching the casserole dishes next year, and baking in throw-away aluminum pans. :O) The tables looked so pretty, and we spent very little time cleaning up afterwards.
