Thanksgiving Vacation 2011 At The Rose's

Oh my! How do I describe this Thanksgiving vacation in a few words?
Oxtail, curry goat, jerk chicken, barbecue chicken, turkey, roast chicken, roast beef, lasagna, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, salad, fish, apple pie, banana cake, mashed potatoes, cupcakes, rice and peas, rum cake, stuffing, rolls, broccoli, wine, wine coolers, Coronas, carrot juice, sorrel. Most of the meats were in the kitchen but all of the food was in the dining room!
My best friend, my Bulgarian sister (from college), my boo, and my cuz came to spend Thanksgiving with me. Joy. All joy.
As usual family stopped by and passed through, and talked, and laughed. and ate in the kitchen with my mom. Everyone kept saying how great the food was and they can't believe Sherine/Mrs. Rose (my mom) did this again and blah blah blah, nothing new in my ears. But it was wonderful and I'm glad they were yet again satisfied. Everyone's belly was full and at the end of the day all were happy.  When we went to my cousin's Ashley's house to show some love and get more food, we came back to my house and half of the food was all gone! That's the non-perk of having so much family lol. But there are still leftovers, enough for me to carry back to school *wipes sweat off of forehead*. This is the first time I really had friends over for Thanksgiving because it's always a whole lot of Jamaicans in my house, but this year I got to share it with my friends and it was wonderful. <3 I love these girls with all my heart and there are only 2 other girls that are not in these pictures that I would call friends. Both names are Mariah/Moriah. 
Barbz left that night. Nancy had to leave the next morning to go to work. Ash was at her house. So it was me, Bory, my bro, my cous for Black Friday. We got up at 4am to catch the Black Friday sales, and boy what a sale we caught. We got home around 11am, took a nap, then headed back out to Newbury/Copley around 5am. Lots of fun. Ate from Scoozi's and Panda Express and finally went home. Took  quick nap then headed out to Boston Bowl about 12am. SO MUCH FUN!
I had such a wonderful time. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Chilling time and bonding time. Girl talk! Laughing time (no thanks to wine/alcohol).

If you have a good name, if you are right more often than you are wrong, if your children respect you, if your grandchildren are glad to see you, if your friends can count on you and you can count on them in time of trouble, if you can face your God and say "I have done my best, then you are a success.
