Thanksgiving extra innings

We're going into extra innings for Thanksgiving. Last evening three of our four children were home to enjoy a Thanksgiving-style meal with us. We had pineapple-garnished ham, sweet potato puff, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, and traditional sage stuffing. We also had a roaring fire in the fireplace, which was very relaxing and cozy.

Today we're celebrating with the paternal side of the family. As usual, I'll be bringing pumpkin pies and scalloped corn.

Thursday our oldest son with his wife and two sons will be in town. We'll all go out to eat with my parents and sister, and then we'll spend some time together at our home.

Saturday is Kirk's birtday and we will probably do something with him.

So it's seems as if Thanksgiving is being stretched out over an entire week this year.
