People started to show up at around 2pm, with the first guests of the day being the J family. Here I am with J, as we shuttle items to and fro to make room for ever more dishes on the stove:
We're smiling because we've just been poured 2 glasses of Proseco. YUM!
This is part of the crowd who was there to enjoy the festivities. Notice the joy:
(Also check out J's butt in the bottom left corner, and her man, rather obviously checking out that butt...)
This picture shows you why there's so much joy. Starting from the center and spiralling out clockwise: Turkey, roll, bread stuffing, green bean casserole, squash with brown sugar, walnuts and currants, corn, mashed potatoes - all covered with a helping of gravy.
