Wow -- 27?! That's so amazing! Our extended family used to get together every Christmas season, and we probably had 40 or 50 people, but it was buffet and we spread all over. I'm impressed by the sit down.
Also impressed by all the fabulous looking food -- how did that pecan pie turn out so perfectly designed?? Very cool.
