Sue had fixed a large pan of sweet potato casserole early Thursday morning, which amazingly stayed warm until we got to her nieces house in Ossipee, NH to celebrate Thanksgiving with her family.
We didn't need to get to Tracy's until around noon, with a short stop in Tamworth, NH to pick her Mom up. But we left early as we wanted to check out a house in Meredith Center, NH, taking a little longer path up along Routes 126 and 107 as it's such a pretty drive.It's the first time I had been in the Meredity Center area, and we were both really enjoyed driving through. The house itself, though really nice inside, was set too much in the trees with little privacy.
The gathering at the house was so much fun. It was great to see everyone, particularly all the little ones running around creating havoc. And there was soooo much food! We made a valient effort at it, but there were lots of leftovers for some to take home with them and enjoy later.
Particularly wonderful was getting to see Sue's daughter, Jill, who drove four and a half hours to be with everyone. We had a nice chat until the call of the turkey that had just been pulled out of the oil cooker filled the room with such great smells. Don't bother the animals while feeding....
