Our family celebrated Thanksgiving on the day after (Friday).  Our tradition had been to put up the Christmas tree on Friday, so the McCanns, Nickie’s brother, David, and Randy’s brother, Bob, joined us in decorating the tree and eating a fine feast of Thanksgiving left-overs.  This year is a record for the number of lights on the tree–1,165!  Adam and Anna love to turn on all of the musical ornaments and then run over to the piano ornament and pretend to play along.  We also enjoyed a long phone visit with Amber out in Washington and heard about their Thanksgiving celebration.  Our grandson Silas discovered the joys of eating sweet potatoes.
