Thanksgiving at Faulkner’s
Posted on November 27, 2012
For the past few years we here at Faulkner’s have started and continued a tradition that has become a favorite for everyone involved:
Our Annual Thanksgiving Day Feast!
On Thanksgiving Day everyone gathers at Faulkner’s Ranch for a huge celebration and dinner.
This year we had around 40 of our friends and family there to take part in all of the fun.
As is tradition, we started out by circling up and saying what we are thankful for.
The only rule is that you can’t repeat what someone else has already said.
From family, friends, and new babies, to employment and togetherness we covered it all.
After our Thankful circle, we say grace and then it is time to eat!
And boy did we ever chow down! This picture of the buffet line doesn’t even do it justice – in fact there were two other tables filled with appetizers and desserts!
There was so much delicious food contributed by everyone that you could barely fit it on your plate!
After everyone was completely stuffed it was time for our favorite game of the night:
White Elephant Pirate Bingo!
Here’s how it works…
When someone wins a Bingo they get to go choose a gift from under the tree.
Everyone brought something that was either from around the house or worth under $5.
Here’s the catch though! That gift can be stolen by future Bingo winners up two times.
Needless to say, it gets a little bit rowdy when those Bingo cards come out!
Here were a few of the amazing gifts from this year…
It’s hard to believe that some of these were never stolen. I wonder why…
Anyway, the rest of the evening was filled with lot of pumpkin pie and laughter.
What about you?
What Thanksgiving traditions do you have?
We’d love to hear all about them!
Have a great day ya’ll!
