You couldn't have been in a better spot. Pastry wrapped brie? Butternut squash soup? Spinach gratin? How very nice for all of you. It's fun that the menu included some Must Have choices:
Mema's rolls
Kelly yams
Stanley dip
: )

Happy Birthday last Monday!! I hope you had a fun time in Cali. I sent you an email a bit ago, but I think I don't have your current address. Let me know if you get up this way in December. I think we should try another get together and get Vickie this time.
Happy Turkey weekend!

What a sophisticated menu! What fun--and with all you Stanley women I know it was a beautiful presentation as well as delicious.

As I think about it--of course it's your favorite holiday--the whole nation is celebrating your birthday. But I do recall that you were not too enchanted by the idea of having pumpkin pie rather than cake.
