I'm happy to share a few photos I took before the voracious lunch crowd arrived. I'm getting to know a lot of the names (it's only taken me 3 1/2 years), but since I still don't know everyone's name, I'll do the captions in menu-style so you'll know what everyone was preparing. Keep in mind, some of the people you see here also worked yesterday (and the day before I think), and stayed again all day today. So this, by far, isn't everyone who made it all happen.

|Two of our lovely dining room helpers|
|Bread, Cranberry Relish, Applesauce|
|Green Beans (sorry for the blur)|
|Ya gotta have coffee with dessert! Good job, David!|
|The Take-Out Crew|
|Take-Out Check-Out (More of the calm before the storm)|
|Evidence of a LOT of wonderful folks not pictured who worked at home to contribute all these (and more) wonderful desserts!|
So if you didn't make it this year, you missed some yumminess and good company. Be sure to mark your calendars for next November so you don't make that mistake again.
