Chris' Aunt Ginny showed up early to help (and brought her own apron), because in her words, "Thanksgiving dinner is a team sport!" She provided both color commentary and cooking trouble-shooting over the couple of hours it took us to prepare all the dishes. Followed not long after Ginny, Chris' parents marched in our house with a folding table, eight chairs, table linens, a turkey in a giant roaster and a large crockpot full of mashed potatoes. It didn't take them long to transform our dining room to seat 14.

|Dan and Nan graciously provide the turkey so this vegetarian doesn't have to.|
|Kiera and Matteo loved all the food (except for pumpkin pie!), but perhaps Matteo ate too much turkey.|
|Send kids into the woods and I guarantee they're going to collect sticks.|
