Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving hosted an awesome dinner of friends and siblings. My friend, Owen, came up from California for the entire long weekend; Alex came for Thanksgiving Day; and Nick, Brandy and Poulo came for Sunday. And, of course, Margot and Luca came for food.

As is Stafford family tradition, we hiked Spencer Butte. Owen would say that we climbed the butte, as large portions of the trail do not actually exist.

Here we are half of the way up getting a snack.

At the top…

Our dinning room, like the trails on the butte, for the most part does not actually exist. So we moved the table into the living room.  (Note that the leaves on the light table cloth were hand embroidered for the occasion by me)

Margot, Owen and Shad…

Me and Owen…

Lillie wandered by but did not really want to participate…

Later on Thursday, we all played Guitar Hero into the Wii hours of the night. All in all, a very nice Thanksgiving.

Saturday night, Poulo, Nick and Brandy came down for the night. We played more Guitar Hero and some Settlers of Catan. Poulo and Owen and I alerted the gaming store a block from out house to stay open and we ran there and got the Catan expansion pack so that we could all play. Once you have the expansion pack however, you realize why the made the original game for only 4 people. It’s a hella long and confusing game, but we had fun.
