Gobble Gobble: Thanksgiving 2008 - Cheers to New Beginnings!

Thanksgiving at the Hayward House is a BIG BIG BIG DEAL. This year's event was the first gathering at the CHEN HOUSE in YEARS. When I say YEARS I mean it - like, 15-20 years? We finally moved back to Hayward. On this day we not only moved out our of apartment, we moved into the house and cooked Thanksgiving Dinner and ate by 8:30pm. Here's what happened!

8:30am Went to Whole Foods to pick up the prime rib
10:15am Arrived at UHAUL in Hayward to rent a truck
11:00am Started packing the apartment
1:30pm Started packing all the cars and the UHAUL with beds, big items, etc.
3:00pm Arrive at Hayward house and unpack
5:00pm Started to cook the turkey, prime rib, ribs, stuffing, brussel sprouts, mashed potato, etc.
