We had the largest crowd ever at our present home. 18 people. It was originally going to be more like 22, but a few didnt make it. We were very lucky this year to share our day with some special cousins from Florida. We had not had Thanksgiving together since we were kids, so it was extra special. My cousin Gene, his wife Katy, and their 4 children, including their newly adopted daughter from China drove around 12 hours to spend a few days with us.
Watching our kids all play together made us think back to when that was us. Wow, time really flies, doesnt it??
Here is my cousin Gene, and my brother in law John waiting for the turkey to be served.
We had sunny, warm weather, which was great, as I dont have a large enough table in my dining room to seat so many. Next best thing is my screened porch. Its large, and we set up 2 folding tables. That, combined with all the other seating in there made for plenty of room.
We also had the pleasure of welcoming my husbands Aunt, Uncle and family to our neck of the woods this past July.
So they also joined us. Everyone brought something, and it was great!
Here is my nephew Matt wearing his turkey leg hat he made in preschool last year. I should have taken a side view photo. He is way too cute wearing this.
And although this picture is blurry, I wanted to introduce you all to the newest member of our family, celebrating her very first Thanksgiving here in America~ Noelle.
