Talk about laid back. Wow. Thanksgiving can't be any easier or casual than the BallTeam Thanksgiving, 2016. James' step mother, Jean, made Thanksgiving for us - all of it. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, stuffing and two pies. James went to see them on Wednesday, and brought it all home. On Thursday morning, I woke up, heated it all up in the oven and we all ate all day. It was amazing. We watched football and played board games and hung out. Then we ate some more. Rachel and Evan are not in this picture; they came over later and we had a chess tournament - which only got through the first two rounds before disintegrating into more football and food.
I am so thankful for these people. Each one teaches me something different. Each one is precious. I love them as a BallTeam and individually. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
And, Rachel is thankful for sleep. (I'm so jealous.)
