We invited all of the Marines, along with two families over to enjoy drinks and dinner. We had a wonderful turn out. We hosted 23 people total (including our family) and had an abundance of food remaining afterwards. During dinner the kids played in the basement and the adults hung around the living room and dining room table talking. We couldn't have been happier with how things turned out. Thankfully, we were able to host "friendsgiving" here since we are all away from our families.
Everyone left shortly after dinner and all guests were gone by 10. We cleaned everything up (all dishes were washed, too) and then FaceTimed Nana and Poppy for a few minutes. Tara and her family showed up before we hung up, so we were able to tell them hello, too. Around midnight, we called it a day and tucked ourselves in.
We are very hopeful that we all sleep well and no one wakes up too early in the morning. Goodnight!
Talking on the phone and watching football.
Happy Thanksgiving, from our family to yours!
