Day of Thanks

This was probably one of the most memorable Thanksgivings for me. It was a day of family, unexpected family, friends, acquaintances, and even strangers (to me) getting together to feast and fellowship in a spirit of thankfulness.

I was really glad that we went to a Thanksgiving service held in our pastor's home on Thanksgiving Eve. It really put me in a mood of gratefulness. I had a hectic day of trying to make pies and take care of two busy kids. So, it was really nice to set aside a few hours to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday!

After the fact, I wish I'd taken so many more pictures. I really appreciated Kevin's dad doing "Five Kernels of Corn" place settings. I am disappointed that I forgot to take a picture of it. And I didn't get a picture of the fabulous food buffet either. Oh well. Here is the best of what I got!

Oh I love the picture of Meredith!!! Who made that? We used to try to dress up like that when we were young.

Sounds like you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a terrific surprise with the visitors. :)

My mom made it for my little sister and then passed it on. I actually have one that fits ME except that we didn't end up getting a picture. Maybe next year?
