I setup in the garage and put out chairs for 26 around 8 tables, had the games going on multiple screens. The kids were out riding dirt bikes and cruising the UTVs on the east 40, the wives all had their white claws in hand gathered around the island in the kitchen getting all of the fixins ready. The boys all stood around the oil fryer, beer in hand watching the turkey boil in peanut oil, yelling at the TV every time the ball was dropped.
There was so much extra food after that everyone got a mounded dish on their way out. There was still a ton of food after that ill be eating leftovers for a month.
It was a good day and now its time for bed, aka turkey coma
