SMASH SUCCESS
Our dinner party was a monster success, the dinner was great, the desserts even better, and the company was a lot of fun. Jan complimented Anders by saying that he's been attending Thanksgiving dinners with his American wife, Kelly, since 1981 and this was the best one ever. :)

The last guests left around 12:30 a.m. and Anders & I picked up the worst of the mess, moving all the dirty dishes to the kitchen and rinsing them, and putting furniture back in place. At 1:15 we sat down in the living room to catch our breaths before heading to bed, and Anders flipped the TV to the E! channel, where they were showing a lurid documentary entitled "The Last Days of Sharon Tate." We watched the entire thing, hypnotised as by a snake, I swear. I had Charlie Manson dreams all night. shudder Just think: that man was someone's child once.

The kid's department looks like a tornado hit it, but it's probably not going to get picked up today. I've got 3 of 4 loads of dishes in the dishwasher, and we went to the mall for some necessaries: boots, pants, sweatshirts, gloves, girly Christmas dress, all for the kids. Caught the Crazy Feet Christmas dance show on the mall stage which thrilled the kids. I've been thinking about enrolling both of them in classes at Crazy Feet, but keep not getting around to it for whatever reason.

We've carted down all the boxes labeled XMAS from the attic and intend to at least get the Advent lights up before bedtime. Tomorrow is December 1st...heading into the crazy holiday season, and the week ahead is a busy one with Martin's birthday party at the end of it. :) But I have turkey leftovers to look forward to! Mums!

How great that it all went so well. The more I hear about the concept of Thanksgiving, the more I like it as a holiday.

Hope all of your lights are working. Ours aren't and you know who is lying on the sofa, surfing the net instead. I think I'll be buying new ones tomorrow :)

Hope you're still remembering what I told you before - breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out!

I am, I swear. :) If you saw my calendar for December you'd just laugh. :)

No, I wouldn't, I'd probably be jealous. Remember, I am married to the original anti-social Swede and just having two people over today for a few hours has been a MAJOR undertaking, not the preparation of food or cleaning, just getting him used to the idea!

yes, but he DID end up looking forward to it, so you're making progress :) Maybe next time it will be HIS suggestion! haha :) You can always come down south and visit me!
