O.k., so things didn't start out so good on Thursday morning.
I put the unwrapped turkey in the sink for a last minute thawing session and ran the sink over.
Wouldn't you think the water would've just gone into the other sink?
No matter. We had 18 people. (1 newborn and one yet-to-be-born)
It was a wonderful day. The only problem with being the hostess is one cannot be everywhere at once.
But, thanks to O.S.'s fiancee we got it all done and were ready when everyone got here.
Here's the pre-dinner snack table.
