Thanksgiving 2010

Thanksgiving is upon us once again. Last year I think we had around 14, the year before that 24 and after much pressure from me, I think we're at 11 this year. I love having all the people over, but there is such a thing as too many people. I mean, I would like to have some leftovers when this is all done, that's also a traditional part of Thanksgiving!

So I was looking back through my previous Thanksgiving post pictures and came across these two. This first one is from a couple years back before we got a large table. We had to line up 3 tables end-to-end just to seat everyone together. The thing that struck me about this photo though was how empty my china cabinet was. Wow, it looks nice.

Contrast that shot with this one where we now have a super long table to properly seat everyone comfortably and look at the clutter in the china cabinet now. I don't think you can see as much in this photo, but now we have a couple sets of dishes in there, countless wine glasses of various types, platters, bowls. I kinda miss the clean, uncluttered look that it had briefly after we first painted the dining room. Maybe once I get all the cabinets installed in the kitchen I will be able to de-clutter the china cabinet once again. Anyway, hope all of you who celebrate the day are able to share it with people you enjoy and not just people you tolerate. :-)

CK, consider this an open invitation. You get across the ocean, you're invited for dinner, no matter what time of year. :-)

I guess I really like Clutter, or as I call it. 'the full look'...!

Spoke with Lee M. yesterday and indeed, it is her in that Wii Commercial. She said it was a lot of fun to do---That they did many "Takes" a bunch of different ways and SHE was surprised at the one they picked to 'air'. She just saw it herself last week. I still haven't seen it...But, I'm sure I!
