This Saturday we hosted 16 people, and eight of them were children! Dinner was the usual fare except this year the children picked carrots from the garden, and these were served with potatoes that nana and papa grew.
The weather was gorgeous, and there was one last boat trip on the river.
Owen was captain and steered the craft through calm waters....
...while Mandi and her nephew ( who is 10) compared their heights....
We ate outside, and afterward, the children removed the corn cobs from the stalk. What secrets that were hidden, waiting to be revealed when the husks were removed!
The last hoorah was when Uncle B. hung a pumpkin Piñata! Great fun!!
All in all, it was a wonderful celebration...my favorite! There is NOTHING like family time, and our family is growing! My heart swells when I see how well my children get along. They care for each other, and look after each other. What more could a mom ask?
I will remember this particular Thanksgivng for a long time to come....then...next year there will be new memories to make!
I am certainly Thankful for my family.
