|Private Dining Area so we can be rowdy!|
Once again, we convened at the Del Rey Yacht Club in Marina del Rey for our annual family Thanksgiving feast. We had 24 family members attending this year...three tables of eight...perfect for conversation! It seems that we sat by age group. Larry and I have graduated to the old folks table!
The main dining room was filled with old friends. It was a very festive room. The food was plentiful and tasty. The stuffing was the only item that I didn't like. It had a strange consistency. Argh! Stuffing is the BEST part of the Thanksgiving meal. I'm cooking a mini-T-Giving meal for us today with perfect stuffing!
It's always fun hanging out with my cousins. We have lots of laughs and always have things to discuss. Thankfully, we did not discuss politics. Most of us are on the same side, so I don't think there would have been any knock-down fights if we had talked about the recent presidential election.

The highlight of the evening was a performance by our COUSIN STRUMMERS Ukulele Ensemble. We did not have a chance to rehearse and some of the cousins have only been playing uke for a short time, but I think we did a fairly good job! We played some old favorites that everyone could sing along with. Next year, we may have to work up a few more tunes and practice in advance! Videos are forthcoming!
|Laurie, Amelie, Carolyn, Marilyn and Ellen. Brooke joined us on a few tunes too!|
There will be more photos, including a group shot, as the pictures from others roll in! Happy Thanksgiving sweet family of mine!
