{ turkey hangover }

soup, fajitas, sandwiches, pot-pie, cassarole...
how many ways are there to use left-over turkey?

I had the pleasure of having my husband's side of the family here for Thanksgiving dinner....
along with them they brought thee biggest gobbler I have ever seen.,..25 + pounds.
(my father-in-law carted it into the house with a wheel-barrow...no lie)

it was a boisterous dinner, with loud German/Italian conversation throughout.
If you've never experienced the dinner table, when all of the family members are present,
each one talking so loudly that your ears ring, chattering non-stop between bites of lasagna & green bean casserole, well then my Friends, you just haven't lived.
we are blessed with a large family, - both sides...
and we really do love it when they come for a visit...it might get crazy, there may even be arguing and tears...but hey ~ it's FAMILY...what can ya do?
at least we had the chance to be together again...
some of the family members will be leaving today, others on tuesday...
I'll be able to find some time to work on my things for the Open House here on the 12th of December....

I will be carrying alot more supplies for rug hooking and needlepunch in the shop, some more designer's patterns, and will post the Winter 2009/10 class schedule soon....
I'm hoping to list that fraktur tonight on ebay too.

Hoping your bellies aren't too full,
and that your time spent with your families was special~

Blessed be, my friends,

Hi Lori,

It sounds like a perfect family Thanksgiving to me. Aren't holidays fantastic. I'd better get back to my three page "to do" list. Have a great weekend.
