Thanksgiving 2004

The first snow storm of the season moved through the day before, but on Thanksgiving Day the sun was shining and temperatures climbed into the mid 40s. We split up this Thanksgiving, with Chris and Jenn heading to Kansas City to be with Chris' family while the rest of us celebrated the day in Chesterfield. Leslie did a wonderful job prepapring for the big event with great food and a very festive table setting. Shirley joined us for the occasion as well. I failed as the principal photographer but Cherie filled the void and took most of the pictures you see below.

With Martha Stewart behind bars, Leslie steps up and shows Chesterfield and the world how it's done. Great job, Lester.

Here comes the guy with the goods. Arnie wears the traditional shirt, has done the traditional carving, and is now taking the traditional walk into the dining room.

After the traditional round of "Thanksgiving" and having filled our tummies, Summer and Allison entertain the group with a song they wrote themselves. A classic about a duck and a turkey on a bright and sunny day. Encore!

Chris is making himself useful by helping with the cooking chores. He's famous for his green bean casserole.
