The Sechny-Schneider Thanksgiving, 2017

Some scenes from our Thanksgiving, courtesy of friend and prolific photographer Lisa Nagy Isaacson:

Some of the food:
While we mostly drank champagne/mimosas, we also test-tasted this not-at-all-bad “Covfefe” wine Our niece Emily with Wayne’s sister Judy.My brother Bobby with one of his oldest friends from the neighborhood, Saul Isaacson.Mike and Emily, slaving away in the kitchen.

Mike and his mother, Mary.

Saul and Judy perusing, as far as I recall, DIckens.

Saul and his wife (and now our family photo archivist, as I told her) Lisa.

Wayne and I melting into the couch.  Those plush ‘drumsticks’ you see in the foreground were actually Thanksgiving-themed ‘party’ headgear, which we were forced to wear for a photograph later, and which I will NOT post here (or anywhere else!)

Several (many many) Mimosas later, after some wonderful NY cheesecake over which some of us drizzled a maple/cream/pecan sauce, Wayne and I headed home to our hungry kitties.  It was an enjoyable visit that, now that we’ve gotten more used to the newer ‘family and friends’ dynamics, we’re looking forward to more and more each holiday.

I hope that all of our Zoo family and friends enjoyed just as comfortable – and tasty! – Thanksgiving.

  1. Looks like you all had a blast! I spent the evening with my wife’s family, 24 for dinner with 2 turkeys, ham, mashed potatoes, salad, green beans (with mushrooms, Vietnamese style), my stuffing and homemade cranberry sauce (thanks for the help Amber), and a whole lot more.
    Good times, except for the late hour we left and my early wake up call to go to work…
    Hope everyone had as much fun as we did!

  2. At our T’giving meal, we had the turkey and dressing, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, squash casserole, hash brown casserole, and rolls. For dessert we had pumpkin pie and/or cheesecake. The meal was at my older stepson’s house out in North Paint Rock Valley, so far out in the country, I began hearing dueling banjos long before we made the final Siri-assisted turn onto the road he lives on.

    • My sister said this was the crowd she wanted to invite to her holiday gatherings, plus another friend of theirs (and godfather to their children) who couldn’t make it this year. I no longer need to fear running into my racist father (with whom I haven’t spoken in years), and nobody in the group is a right-winger who defends the GOP’s inhumanity to man. Very non-stressful. Me likey.
