#2 son and his GF arrived Wednesday morning, and #1 son and his wife came shortly thereafter. We had the Family Grilled Cheese Party. Lots of good food and good conversation.

Thanksgiving Day we had homemade doughnuts, fruit, and yogurt for breakfast.

We cooked and baked all morning, and had turkey and all the trimmings, plus vegan alternatives, and more good conversation.

The Empress and That Man came over in the afternoon.

Friday we put up the Christmas tree.

The Littles loved the Uncles.

They played with the toys and snuggled with the aunties.

In the evening, we went to a local brewery, picked up my yarn order, and had more good conversation.

No games this year, but lots of talking.

It was great to be with family and connect with some people we don’t see that often.

Today I cleaned up, took a few more steps toward Christmas decor, read, drank tea, knitted, and binge-watched Castle.

It’s good to have some solitude after the satisfying family time.
