Thanksgiving at the Maycock's 2007
This year's guests. Isn't Babs beautiful in this photo? I love her smile and those bright eyes!
Babs and I hosted our annual Thanksgiving feast this year. We had one very long table, 19 guests, and lots and lots of delicious food as always, including three pumpkin pies, two apple pies, and one cherry pie--all homemade by Bev, Mai, and myself.
I thought it all came together pretty well. The food was ready on time, and within 45 minutes of the arrival of the first guests, we were sitting down to eat. I feel like we get better at the logistics of this every year. Unfortunately Babs has been sick for the past few days, but she managed to make it through the evening okay.
