Everyone but Megan and me had shopping or truck repairing in mind for Saturday. I made turkey, ham and cheese platters for Bill and Karen's after church service party, and then I made a breakfast casserole for this morning. They needed to hit the road early to get to Mississippi.
Cousins Karen and Bill had a nice subdued party this year. Lots of people sick, plus it was raining so it was a small but lively crowd. But that did not keep Bill from lighting the neighborhood up with booming fireworks. There was absolutely no one left on the block sleeping after he and Eric Hall finished playing 10 year olds. Clif and Jerry Nash helped out also.
This morning we got up and opened presents, ate breakfast and Clif and Megan headed off in the rain. Saying a prayer for them to get there safe.
Enjoy our pictures.
