Come... Gather... Give Thanks.

Yesterday, we did indeed come, gather and give thanks. It was a beautiful fall day outside and a beautiful day of fellowship, feasting and fun, inside.

All the family contributed yummy food. We had all the traditional dishes: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, yams, cranberries, jello salad, rolls and pies. We also had some delicious non-traditional additions: spinach salad, brussels sprout and avocado salad and pumpkin cheesecake (thanks Becky and Melody!).
Naomi helped with the candle centerpieces
Lucas peeled, cooked and mashed all the potatoes the day before.

Naomi came in her Pilgrim costume to remind us of the history of our holiday!
It was a first Thanksgiving for these two little guys!
This little guy was all decked out in his tie and suspenders!
Truly a day to be thankful!
