    Sounds like a lovely holiday! My Thanksgiving was nice too–lots of great food, and time spent with family. I’ve never heard of the game Mexican train–I’m guessing you use dominos for it?

      That sounds like a lovely holiday!

      Yes it;s a domino game. It’s really fun. Everyone seemed to have their own version of the rules (according to how their families played the game) so it got kind of loud. 🙂

    I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but it sounds like a holiday I could get into!

    On my birthday and xmas (and when I was in a relationship, my anniversary), I eat what I want and don’t worry about it. 3 days a year won’t make me fat again. And everyone needs cake for breakfast once in a while 😀

      Agreed! 2-3 days out of the year are not the end of the world and not going to cause all the weight to come back. I love your quote. “Everyone needs cake for breakfast once in awhile.” LOL

    That looks like a great time! I figure that I should worry more about the days leading up to Thanksgiving and after than worry so much about how I am eating on that day. I do tend to eat a lot more than usual, but I don’t stuff myself anymore.

    We had fun with activity , food and games!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I don’t stuff myself either. Just eat enough of everything I want and then skip the second helpings!

    Looks like you had a really great day! The food looks so fantastic! It’s my birthday weekend, so I had birthday treats instead of Thanksgiving treats!
