Early Family Get-Together

We're not having Thanksgiving with my parents this year, just with Eugene's family. It'll be easier for us not to have to drive up to Wisconsin, eat, and then drive back down to eat some more. Still, I'm going to miss my mom's cooking this year. At least I got to see them yesterday. Eugene and I treated both sets of parents, as well as his brothers and my grandmother, to Texas de Brazil. It's an all-you-can-eat Brazilian steakhouse, featuring different varieties of beef, chicken, pork, and lamb, brought to your table on skewers. It does have a good salad bar too, but the meat is the star of the show.

It was good getting the parents together; I don't think they've been together since the wedding. The only bad thing about the event--besides the price--was that I ate so much I had a bad stomach ache later on that evening. (That's why I didn't blog last night.) It kept me up all night, but the pain finally ebbed this morning. (I'm actually glad I was able to go into work so I could start and finish a three-day experiment before the holiday.) I'm too tired tonight to post pictures; perhaps tomorrow.

Hi Sandra, I am glad you had a lovely Thanksgiving with Eugene and your family (sorry to hear about the stomach ache :(

I, too, had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my younger sisters home. This was the first year her mother-in-law joined us, my family from Greece was there also. We all ate too much also but, nothing compares to the laughter and stories shared yesterday. I stopped and looked around at all the people at the table and could not contain the huge smile on my face. I am truly thankful for my family.
