Thanksgiving Mania

In 3 days, 14 family members will be heading up the 5 from LA and joining us for a Pre-Thanksgiving feast at our house. We'll be spending the actual Thanksgiving in Zihuatanejo, Mexico (AHHH, can't wait!) so in February, I sent out the evite for our Pre-Thanksgiving Feast and 14 people from both Kev and mines family are coming! We held Thanksgiving here last year and all was fabulous but it takes some serious organization and hard work. Last year, I was DEAD by the cheese course and fell asleep in Babar's dog bed through dessert...

Don't be frightened by my next few posts but it needs to be done...Kevin, if you have any questions or changes, please speak up!
