    So sorry for your family's loss, @Nrdsb4. How touching it must have been to watch your H and nephew carve the turkey. May you all continue to heal together. Hugs.

    Family just left a couple hours ago and catching up here. @Nrdsb4, I'm so, so sorry to hear about your loss. It really does sound very special that your nephew and dh could carry on the tradition together and I wish you all peace.

    We had family start arriving Tuesday and the last ones are now gone. With the kids all grown up, we all had much more adult and engaging conversation than I recall in past years. Everyone was fun and a delight to be with and, surprisingly, it was my mom that ended up being a bit challenging. Still, dh did a great job with the meal, the cousins shared a great time and the siblings and in laws all connected. Thanksgiving really is a great holiday! D2 and D3 head back to the opposite coast tonight. Will be bittersweet but I do think dh and I are pretty happy with our empty nest!

    @Nrdsb4, so sorry to hear about your BIL. The weight of a loss is so much heavier during the holidays. A few of my friends suffered losses this year and are also having to face the holidays without their loved ones.

    @Nrdsb4, just catching up and I'm so sorry for your family's loss. Your turkey carving story reminds us that is about the togetherness more than anything else.
