Highlights from Thanksgiving 2016

I meant to take photos of all the food, drinks, and desserts yesterday but, as so often happens when we entertain, I got too busy and forgot about it! So instead, I thought I'd share a few pix from my family's Thanksgiving celebration this year. In addition to Alex and myself, we had Daddy, Aunt Jane, my sister, Rhonda, brother-in-law Brad, and their children, Madison, Cari, Matthew, and Amelia, and Madison's boyfriend, Dylan, who was nice enough to take a photo of all of us when Amelia said she wanted a photo with everyone in it.

Some of you who have been reading this blog for a while have pretty much watched my nieces and nephew grow up! Here are Madison, Cari, Amelia, and Matthew.

All the kids in our family get a Christmas ornament on Thanksgiving. Matthew got Star Wars.

 Amelia has been saying she wants a horse, so I got her one. 😉

Cari requested a Star Wars ornament and a Captain America ornament she found at Walmart, so she got two ornies this year since hers were half the price of everyone else's. (Gotta keep things equal!)

And Madison is currently studying for a career in the health care field, so this ornament seemed fitting for her this year.

Here she is with boyfriend Dylan, who was a good sport about taking and being in all the photos.

And here's my frequent shopping partner that you often read about, my Aunt Jane. A beautiful day, a wonderful meal, and the blessing of family — it doesn't get much better than that!


  1. What lovely family photos. You are blessed!

  2. That's very nice of you to share your family holiday photos with us.
