Things in the Spirited household have been neither terribly busy, nor stagnant, but just enough, if you know what I mean. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving feast-cum-game night with a few friends. It was my first time in several years making pumpkin pie, and my first ever time making it from absolute scratch - including roasting a pumpkin.

There were actually many firsts for me this year for Thanksgiving. They are as follows...
- celebrated Thanksgiving in Ireland
- time cooking Thanksgiving dinner
- roasting a ham
- time vegetarians outnumbered the omnivores (I made a special main course for them, and made sure that the stuffing and gravy were all vegetarian friendly - pretty much the only thing that wasn't was the ham)
- entertaining more than 3 adults for a full meal and dessert (and games after!)
Not to mention that it was my husband's first ever Thanksgiving, and two of our guests' first as well. It was a blast.
We played Carcassonne and Pandemic (both are boardgames) with our friends, and enjoyed lots of laughs and fun.
