Early Thanksgiving

Well, we had a busy Sunday. First, Grandma Hilderbrand came by after church and visited with Virginia. It is always nice to see her and I know Virginia loves her grandma.

Then we headed down to Concord to Donnie and Meredith's house for a surprise Thanksgiving dinner. Meredith, Donnie's wife, has not had Thanksgiving dinner with her mom for five years. Her whole family lives in Washington state so she just hasn't been able to make it out for the holidays. So while her mom is visiting, Donnie had the great idea to throw a surprise Thanksgiving dinner and invite all her friends. Well, when I first heard about the plans I wondered, who is doing all the cooking? I mean Thanksgiving dinner is no small task. I have only known Donnie to grill hamburgers and hotdogs so I didn't know if he could cook a whole Thanksgiving meal for twelve people. Luckily, Donnie called in the reserves, his mom Linda. She cooked up a feast. Everything tasted amazing; from the turkey, ham, loaded mash potatoes, devil eggs, to the pumpkin roll. I had to hold myself back from going back for thirds. Along with the food came good company. Bridget and Tony came. Then Amy, Jamie, and their cute son Torrin. Torrin is getting ready to turn one year old in December. He is just too cute. He was very interested in the DVD player and Virginia. I had to tell him sorry, Virginia is not allowed to date til she is 50. I just can't wait til Virginia is that active and talking. I am sure that time will wear us out but it was just so much fun playing with Torrin. It was a long night but loads of fun seeing everyone.
