Aunts Martha, Florence, Esther, Ruth and Uncle Frank were the hosts for this year's Thanksgiving in Philadelphia. Mizza Dot, Bette, Ed and Rachel drove in from West Chester. LuAnn and Jim came from Ocean City with Bailey and Brooke, Mark and Donna brought Allie and Donna's brother Jim.
This year's dinner at 516 was a catered affair. LuAnn and Jim brought a beautiful turkey. Mark and Donna provided side dishes and Mizza's group brought the Armenian appetizers. Aunt Esther made the jello molds and also supervised the setup of the table and buffet.
The meal started with Armenian appetizers where were quite popular. Next came the presentation of the turkey, which then went back to the kitchen for carving. Bailey Blumenstock lead the grace and Doxology with the assistance of Brooke and Allie Landon. Uncle Frank finished up with the blessing.
Dinner was served buffet style and everyone got plenty to eat. The kids got to sit at the big table this year, while Mark and the two Jims dined together at the side table.
Phone calls were received from Tom George and from Tuddy and Howard, who were on a cruise in the Florida keys. Later, Bailey Blumenstock's sixth birthday was celebrated, followed by dessert and musical entertainment. A good time was had by all.
