menu was perfection, the turkey (all 25 pounds of it) was delectable, and the guests that gathered at our table blended the very best of family and friends. The fact that the girls team totally creamed the boys in charades was merely icing on the cake, and watching my friend's boyfriend have to act out "Like a Virgin" was a moment that will go down in history.
Like typical males (sorry guys!), they waited until the third round of charades before they finally settled on the "team language." You know- the signal for word vs. syllable, and so on. The girls- we did this before the first round even started, thanks to Elizabeth's mad charade skills... and we sailed to victory...smooth as butter. Thanksgiving, and the weekend that followed found our house bursting with laughter, conversation and precious moments spent together.
