Every year we get together at my mother-in-law's house (which is about a 3-minute drive now that we live in this new house) the Saturday after Thanksgiving with family from Mexico and some from nearby. We eat a traditional turkey dinner with a few nontraditional sides, like frijoles and my mother-in-law's special ground beef "stuffing" with peas, carrots and potatoes (no bread crumbs but it's really good). We used to stay up really late, drinking tequila or kahlua, munching on sweets and nuts and singing karaoke. Now that some of us have babies and small children, the festivities have quieted down a lot. Speaking of babies, I was looking forward to holding my nephew Ricardito last night but he slept the whole time!
