Thanksgiving, Version I

 In keeping with tradition, we celebrated Thanksgiving with my side of the family the Saturday before Thanksgiving Day.  The hosting has moved among my two sisters and I and for now has settled at Amy's house.  She did a fabulous job, as always.

Sadly we were missing three people, but we had a great time with those who were there.  The kids are fairly trust-worthy and self-sufficient, making it possible for the adults to hold conversations...amazing!

We are not a family without our share of problems but we are so very blessed.  So, so thankful.


 All sixteen in the same frame.  Since my youngest sister is moving to TX next month, this might be the last time for a while.  :(

 The three year-old table...yikes!

 An entire Thanksgiving meal and this is what Aiden will eat.  I'm not proud of this.
 Big kids table.

 Several world problems being solved.  Four incredible men sitting there.
 4th Quarter birthday people, just missing my dad.
 A flash of Wyatt.
 Avery is super sweet with babies.
 Planning their attack on the Advent calendar.
 Trying out the present my mom got was a hit!  Can't believe my sister let them play in her dining room.
There will be joy and songs of thanksgiving, and I will multiply my people, not diminish them; I will honor them, not despise them.
Jeremiah 30:19
