i don't know what it's like at your house on thanksgiving day, but at my grandparents' house it is a little chaotic. you hear the electric knife carving the turkey, the oven beeping, my mom and grandmother talking to each other across the house, the TV (or deer hunting video game) in the next room, and family walking in and out of the house. that's a normal holiday for us.
i hope your thanksgiving was filled with giving thanks. in honor of this day, here's my grandfather carving some turkey.
