Thanksgiving 2010

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
Josephine Lauren.
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.

You have a beautiful family. I have a Canadian friend who lives here in Washington, who we spent the day I got to enjoy some delicious pumpkin pie for Canadian Thanksgiving. I like celebrating two different Thanksgivings. :)

Love the pictures. My favorite is of you and Josie walking away hand in hand. So adorable.
