Thanksgiving

Once again, we went to the mess hall for Thanksgiving. Although, nowadays it's called the DFAC. I like to go because I can get all the food I don't have room to make at home. I only have enough oven space to make ham or turkey and three casseroles (green bean, sweet potato, and corn bread). At the DFAC I can get all that plus fish, prime rib, kalua pig, and crab legs.

The kids always really enjoy this part of Thanksgiving, particularly for the crab legs. This year, we were some of the first people in the door and the crab legs were huge! By the time we left, the people coming through the line had crab legs about the size of a finger.


The carnage was terrible. But as a military family, we are used it.


Then we (I) strolled around and checked out all the decorations like the ice sculptures.....


....the sparkling cider table....

....the general overindulgence table....

....cool cakes....

....and chocolate sculptures. The decorations are always very impressive.....

....well, mostly.
