We had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration.
I had the foresight this year to go for pictures early in the afternoon.
Sometimes they just don't get taken otherwise.
The weather was abnormally warm and beautiful.
The food was great! A Hutterite turkey just butchered days before.
Stuffing, potatoes, brussel sprouts, roasted squash.
Macaroni and cheese, cabbage rolls.
My only problem is with logistics.
How to get all the food hot and ready at once.
Not a huge success in that department.
Good thing there is gravy to heat everything back up!
On our way to the picture site. Down the back alley.
Me with my daughter and 3 granddaughters, arranging a pose.
Abby, Josie, Eden and Athena
Josie found a lady bug.
My daughter Jill, Eden and her man Clint.
My oldest daughter Jen, Jordan, Abby and Josie.
Me, Paul and Athena.
And last but not least, on the way back home.
Me and my youngest Granddaughter
Love this one!
Our other daughter Jess and her man Dann only showed up later
otherwise they would have been included.
Despite my best intentions,
family pictures never turn out just the way you want them.
As you can see, I have very much to be thankful for each and every day.
