We had a lovely Thanksgiving here in our home. We were happy to have my dad and Eric and Jessica and their sweet children join us for a fantastic meal.
Delicious, fattening, mashed (with butter and whipped cream) sweet potatoes with pecan and brown sugar topping.
Placecards thanks to Martha.
The children made some turkeys with thankful feathers for the kids' table decoration. Here are their thankfuls: Madeline- brother, sister, friends, toys, mom, dad, and country (meaning USA- not the music!). Emma- food, family, God, house, mom and dad, world, body, friends; and Ryan- parents, Star Wars, God, friends, games, food, Jesus, Earth. I think they pretty much get what life is all about:)
Eric and sweet Preston
The only picture I got of Jessica was just as she was leaving because we were working in the kitchen the whole time!
Precious baby Dylan. 8 lbs. and counting!
My thankful list is way too long to narrate. But the main thing I'm thankful for this year are the relationships I have with loved ones and friends. Afterall, what is life without people to share it with? I am learning that it is much more important to be loving than it is to be right.
