Random Monday Memories

Who: Three of my children
What: Eating dinner with bags on their heads
When: Thanksgiving Day 2003
Where: My dining room
Why: I don't know

This was the first Thanksgiving dinner that all four of my children weren't home for. Joe was with his wife (then his fiancee) and her family at their house. Kevin, Katie and Amanda were so sad at not having Joe at the table with them ~ obviously it was more than they could face! Soon to be son-in-law Mark was also at the table. He wore no bag and was probably wondering exactly what he'd gotten himself into! But it's all good ~ he fits in quite nicely!

Just in case you're wondering about the British phone booth in the background ~ Katie and Mark's wedding was the following January and the phone booth was part of the reception decor ~ that, however, is for another Monday!

Have a joy-filled day!
