Six of my co-workers, plus one wife, and one brother of co-workers joined us for Thanksgiving this year.  Also one of Alan's assistant's and her boyfriend.  It's nice to have a big group for the biggest meal of the year, especially when so many people don't have any relatives around.

Linda, Jamie, Colleen, Shawn, Me

Michi, Hartley, Josh?

Mitch, Durf, Me, Jamie, Michelle, Elora, Chad

Elora loved Michelle, Shawn, & Jamie

It was nice having Serge around for the preparations.  He is a chef at the restaurant I work at and Linda, Alan, and I had tons of questions for him.  He also introduced a new tradition: making onion rings as an appetizer before frying the turkey:)

We had four turkeys this year: inflatable, baked, smoked, and fried.  The last three were delicious.

After all the friends went home we enjoyed two days and nights of family time:
