Our Thanksgiving stress was somewhat reduced this year by my daughter-in-law Beth volunteering to host the Thanksgiving dinner at their house in nearby Monroe. I say "our stress" but really I mean Linda's stress. My biggest sacrifice for family coming to visit is probably my willingness to step on leggo pieces for several weeks following the holiday. We had a very nice time with everyone showing up for Thanksgiving dinner except the Kangs. That meant a dinner with about 25 people in James' and Beth's rather small home. Thanks for taking one for the team Beth! Sarah and her six children showed up later that evening and stayed through Monday afternoon. I think we did end up with all nineteen grandkids at our house at some point during the past five days.
