Thanksgiving, a little late...
I've mentioned it a few times, but the Kilgore household seated 17 people for Thanksgiving dinner, and since we don't have a dining room, we had to get creative with the space we have! There is a "nook" landing at the top of our stairs, so I set up a folding table for six and used our pretty benches to seat people on either side. Downstairs I fixed up the kitchen table, the counter and a little card table for the rest of the bunch -- it all worked out perfectly! Since the group was a mix of people that hadn't met before, I decided to make last-minute place cards for everyone. It's times like these that I'm glad I like to hoard random paper goods, stamps and hole punches (I knew they'd come in handy one day!)
It was a wonderful evening with new friends and our families -- it really hit me how fortunate James and I are to have so many fantastic people in our lives. We are very thankful indeed!
