Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the fall colors and the delicious feast we always enjoy. This year we celebrated with lots of family and friends. We are so blessed to have such a big family. In total we were 34 individuals and 4 generations....Thank you Lord for such a heritage we have!

Micah's aunt has a gift of decorating. Her family always makes the building look so beautiful. We ate on fall colored table clothes dressed with leaves, fanned napkins and gourd candles.

There was also this beautiful display of hay, pumpkins and giant mums. These are our two nephews taking a funny face picture.

Me and my sister in law Johanie.

Here is our thanksgiving buffet line. There is always so much food on the table. We had potatoes, squash, dressing, fiddle heads, carrots, salads, sweet potatoes, ham, turkey and of course GRAVY!!!!!

This year on the table these little cinnamon buns got promoted from the dessert table to the buffet table!!! I don't know how that happened with a dietitian in the family!! hehehe

After the feast came the desserts which I will have posted over at the kitchen blog. There are always so many to choose from. There was apple pie, blue berry pie, raspberry pie, squash pie, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake, pumpkin mousse, and ice cream sandwich dessert.

After our feast we had a lovely time of worship and a time of sharing about what we are thankful for!

The next day after church we did a nice walk outside. It was a little cold but it felt good to be able to get outside after all the rain we had.
