Thanksgiving Day

We had a great day, but none of us took many pictures to share. All I've got to show you is some family shots of all of us on Mom's sofa. Mom really does have more sitting areas, but for some reason we thought it'd be easier to make an assembly line project out of looking through the Black Friday sales ads, so we all sat together, and these pictures were taken.

We had a full house-- besides the family, we had one of Mom's co-workers (Marisal) and her 3 children. Also, Joel and Mom's neighbor (Michael) came and brought his 2 children. Most of the kids were teenagers and they hit it off with Jaime and Ashley. It was nice that the kids had some people their age to occupy them.

The food was incredible! Delia gave my family a turkey for Thanksgiving-- it was a 13.66-pound Heritage Farms turkey-- the same type that we served a few weeks ago at Serenbe Farms. I brought a couple of Chef Dewberry's famous pumpkin pies and they were eaten up immediately! Despite a lot of conversations the night before concerning the number of unexpected guests (I don't think we have enough food/ maybe we should get another turkey/ etc), we had plenty of food and enough left-overs to feed a small army! I really enjoyed having a "re-run" lunch of turkey, dressing, etc for lunch (and supper) today!

I hope all of you had a great day, too. We all have so much to be thankful for, and it's nice that there is a day set aside during the year just to be reminded how lucky we are, and to give thanks.
