We had all four of our kids, three significant others and Victor, our foreign exchange student from France, all here for four days. If you’re counting that’s 8 twenty-somethings and two old farts, and a 1200 sq. foot apartment! In a nutshell … BEST THANKSGIVING EVER! I think we would’ve had fun, even if we were in a one room shack!
TRUTH: it was crowded but really fun. No one complained about lack of space. I had to keep cleaning to keep from being covered up with crap. The guest room had NO floor space, as we had to put a twin mattress on the floor and the rest of the space was filled with luggage, clothes, etc. Victor slept on the sofa all weekend, but was a great sport.
TRUTH: I missed my extra refrigerator. I had to make more trips to the grocery store as there is no way to store enough food for 10 people for 4 days in one frig. We used ice chests on our back porch for beer and beverages. That saved a ton of space. Also had our turkey fried by Crabtown, which saved frig and oven space. It was AWESOME! Probably will do that every year.
TRUTH: We LOVED being downtown. Victor and I walked over to Park Harvey for Sushi when he arrives and before the rest of the gang got here.
A few of us walked over to see the Bricktown Tree turn its lights! Some of our gang went Ice Skating at the Devon Ice Rink. We didn’t make it to the Snow Tubes, but we still have Christmas break. We also enjoyed the apartment Hot Tub on Friday night!
