It's unanimous that "Friendsgiving" is our favorite friend tradition. I can't believe this is our 4th year doing it. Every year we lose a person to marriage and/or an out-of-state move, but the tradition stays alive! I think the food this year was my favorite yet!

crackers with cranberry + cream cheese
veggie tray
drinks
stuffing
 rainbow jello
salad
baked yams
homemade rolls and jam
rotisserie chicken
pumpkin dessert

Part of the tradition is the little sheets we have for each person and write little i'm-thankful-for-you type ditties for each friend. It's always the nicest to read later and I've saved them from each year.

Topics of the night: 
-is or is not Annie's middle name "Belle"? 
-was Emily's peeking midriff appropriate for her teaching job that day?
-what does Kristine really do at Cartier anyway? 
-Tess's dedication to the rainbow layered jello--she started the process 4 days ahead
-Maggie's stuffing--the hit
-how girls love to tell tragic stories
