Why not join me?
Martin and Melissa were scheduled to come into town Wednesday sometime around Noon.. So I moved my bunzana's and got my meal started.
Wow !! As usual Nancy and Gino did a great job.. and everyone pitched in with a dish but still.. that is an awful lot of people around the table(s)
I cannot begin to explain how wonderful it was to have so many people I love in one room at the same time...I know it meant alot to the kids as well.. They got to reconnect with everyone especially their young cousins...apparently everyone was having a good time since the noise level coming up from the basement was intense.
One of the reason's Nancy decided to take on Thanksgiving ( Besides the love of family and cooking foul) is that 10 years ago on Thanksgiving our Luca was born. She ends up having his birthday on that day as well... She's no dummy she can kill two birds with one stone .... so to speak.
The guys ended up going downstairs ( or should I say to the Game/Arcade Room) to play some virtual reality shoot em up game on the Jumbotron...if you ask me they were Waaaaay too into it.. It was Scary.
We wanted them to get back at a decent hour and in light of the kind of trip they had coming it really was time to say goodbye.
I don't have words to express the gratitude in my heart for this wonderful family.
