My brother and some clever cousins came up with the idea of having an early, pot luck, Thanksgiving, for as many of the family as could make it.
Then they all went into action.
They rented a firehouse. They compiled an incredible photo retrospective of my grandparents, all of their children, as many of their children's children as they could gather. They handed out CDs to all and sundry, so each of us has the best of all the other's photo albums. That brought some tears I'll tell you!
You guys are brilliant! What a party! And now, we can all do our smaller Thanksgivings, with warm and fuzzy happiness at having spent an afternoon with the whole clan in fine fellowship.
