Thankmas at the Venue with the I DO DREAM TEAM and Others

 Several months ago  Julie, Lisa and I started planning a Thankmas or Friends Thanksgiving for the Venue. We decided against the normal meal and went with an Italian themed meal.

This was basically for the I DO DREAM TEAM  but we included Wayne (Julies Brother) and Aric and Krystal, good friends.  Aric helps James out a lot in the garage on did a lot of work on Ole Blue.  I love this divider and look at what Julie did. She had  a card for us all.... with money in it.  My pumpkins graced the center of the table. I made  Alfredo Chicken pizza And another one with  tomatoes on it. Lisa brought this.
