sadly we were unable to attend sam's family's dinner due to illness, but thankfully we recovered in time to actually eat some turkey this year.
my mom's family traditionally gathers together every year for a great big feast!
my parents hosted this grand event at their home this time...
accommodating 40 family members isn't easy, but they did it!
.it was so nice.
thanks mom & dad!
