Thanksgiving feast with dad.
Friday we drove to the Stover ranch in Lodi so I could help my mom and grandma with our larger family gathering we had on Saturday. There were 16 people at the Thanksgiving dinner table, and that's with a few people missing (some were sick or had to work).
My Grandma and I were looking at some scanned pictures she has on her computer and decided to print them out and put an old/funny/cute picture at each person's placesetting. (Some people like my uncle John had so many funny pictures to choose from, I think we ended up printing 4 of them.) During dinner we passed around the pictures and everybody had a good laugh. THIS is the picture that was at my seat. It's okay to laugh. :)
My brother Tony brought one of his gas powered go-carts to Lodi, so the kids (and adults) had fun riding it around the ATV course in the backyard after "dinner" (which was around 1:30pm). Some minor drama with a stuck throttle and a demolished gate, but thankfully no one suffered more than a scrape. We do respect our safety gear.
We drove home Saturday and spent the rest of the weekend at home with some new video games, cuz we're geeks and that's what we do. Sunday morning was very cold! We snuggled and slept in as long as possible, and Charlie was happy to join us, as you can see in the picture. :)
