This year, when I wrote in paper about what I was bringing for Thanksgiving, I mentioned that we have Beaujolais Nouveau ever year, and even if it’s not that great of a wine, we enjoy the tradition. Mac keeps all the bottels and we can look back on the lables. So he got them out and dusted them all off for display:

For some reason, those are all the photos I have this year. I can tell you: we did some singing — but only after the Keyes came and went (no photos of the Keyes!, who brought all four girls!), and after even Sondra and Leigh went home.
But a grand time was had by all.
