Finally uploading photos from last week... here's our spread before the wolves descended upon it and tore it up. We had a lovely, if nonconformist meal of ham, fauxtatoes, brussells sprouts au gratin (not so great--we still dislike those sprouts and I agreed to stop making them every few years), green bean casserole--with from scratch mushroom sauce!--fresh baked bread, and pumpkin pie with ice cream. The kids had sparkling Martinelli's cider (yum) and we adults had some wine.
After stuffing ourselves we went on a long walk around the neighborhood in the dusk and it was a good way to end the day, which was nice and quiet at home. We are thankful Grandpa Russell was able to come have dinner with us, but wish there was not so much distance between us and the rest of our families.
