The dinner was a success - my parents, my sister and her family, my cousin and of course Nick and I had a great time and the food was good too.
The menu was -
2. Cheese Ball
3. Crab Cakes (Nick made these and they were amazing! See pictures..)
4. Butternut Squash soup
6. Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
7. Green Salad
8. Root Vegetable Stuffing
Here are some pictures from the day, mostly around food...
My cousin Larry brought the ice cream and a bag of dry ice with it... so what do you do with a bag of dry ice? You put it in my bird bath/fountain of course!

|Nick add water to the bucket with more dry ice.. Laine is supervising.|
