We had a great Thanksgiving this year! We felt very blessed to be joined by friends: Debbie Blair (who has a special place in our hearts ever since she married us in Newport 5 years ago!), the always charming Darby and Eric Smith, the lovely Smithstanzas and their highly entertaining daughters, and Farzad (Iranian grad student and the only one of Hilary’s 30 students who was brave enough to accept the invitation of dinner at our house). It was a very yummy and fun dinner! We did not do a good job taking pictures of our friends though. Here are a couple of shots of the table, and Debbie kindly reading “Winnie the Pooh” to Julian before the other guests arrived.
