Thanksgiving Day

What a lovely Thanksgiving Day we had! Carolyn's family arrived about noon, John and Arsi came about 3, and Christi and her kids arrived about 4. We ate a little after they arrived. We fixed a turkey and dressing, three pumpkin pies, one buttermilk pie, and a can of cranberry sauce. I also I got a lot of salad dressings.

Carolyn brought two green salads and a potato salad, and Christi brought mashed potatoes (a bag full) and a chocolate chess pie.

We ate until we were stuffed. Then we played Harry Potter Clue. After that John and Travis put up the Christmas tree. They we all played Trivial Pursuit, and, of course, Raf and Bethy won. Raf nearly always wins. We did keep playing and Carolyn, Christi, and I came in second. John was partnered with Jenn, and Darrell was with Travis. Never got photos of Jenn and Bethy, but they were there...out walking, as teenage girls are want to do!

We thank God for our family and for our being able to gather together to celebrate!

The photos are from last to first, of course!

John and Arsi brought the little kids funny gifts. They gave Travis a girl's brush set, and Darrell and Raf ended up with bows in their hair...then Travis got a play knife.

Again, we had a lovely, Thankful day.

Dear Sioux Sue,
looks like you have a wonderful family who are having a real good time together.
That's so rare these days, worth a
hallelujah.

We wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving (even though it's late).

We are still thankful for all of the leftovers.

Nice post and photos.
