Great Thanksgiving !!!!!

What a great Thanksgiving I had. My sister and her family came down from Vancouver, WA and then Rico's Mom and Nieces came up for a quick visit on Saturday night from Fresno.
So it was a family FULL weekend!!!!!

Thanksgiving was just great, and here is my family at the table.
( Mathew is cutting up, isn't he cute!!)


Starting in on the left it is Dale (my best friend for the last 25 years), Cissy (my sister), Katie the niece, Mat the nephew, Rico, the better half and John my brother-in-law....
all of them saying take the picture!!!
This picture doesn't show the extra tables with food that would not fit on the table...
I made way too much again, but I think there was something there for everybody.

On Friday we loaded up the family and went to the the Exploratorium where the kids could touch everything and there is lots to do. It was super fun and we spent the better part of the day there. It is over by the Palace of fine Arts.....the bit that is left from the 1915
Panama Pacific International Exposition.


Here is a snap of Cissy, John and the kids...


After the Exploratorium we went down to Fisherman's Wharf for lunch at In and Out Burger...
and had burgers...



and fries (they cut up actual potatoes and make them fresh!!!)





I did get a little stitching done on BP and here is a snap of the progress.
I finished the top then turned the upper right corner.


and here is an over all picture of the piece as it stands now.



I hope that everyone had a safe and wonderful Holiday!!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

What lovely plates on your wall. I can see why you like Quaker patterns. They have the same feeling as the plates on your wall.

We may have left California, but we did not leave In N Out burgers. There is one a couple of miles from our house and we had dinner at one in Los Angeles.
