Happy Thanksgiving - Family Dinner

Wishing everyone a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!!

I am thankful for so many things... especially my family!
Give Thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever! (Psalm 107:9)

Almost everyone (who weren't off hunting, or out of town) gathered at my sister and brother in law's, Chellie and Bill's for a feast of thanks. We missed those who couldn't be there too, but it was a fun time with lots to eat!

Photos of the crowd (about 65 of us) follows.....

This year's turkey weighed about 50 lbs (60 lbs stuffed!)... my mom fixed that one and brought it over, Chellie fixed a smaller one that was about 15 lbs and looks so small in comparison! *L*

Fun photos of the little kids with the giant turkey bird ... it's much bigger than all these kids! *L*

Jorden and Kasey were ready to dig right in, and Hailey was almost too small to be seen over the turkey. Ha!!

Dad doing the traditional carving of the turkey ... and photos of the other chaos and fun!

My brother Jerry, the MASHER...*L* He was in charge of mashing the potatoes before we all ate...

"Kids" of all ages like to get together and play...
Kaine terrorizes Josh ... Jorden and the other cousins playing... and sister Erica wishes she had Jorden's beads..*L*

Everyone waits in eager anticipation for the feast to begin....

LET'S EAT!! .... Giving thanks to God, and then digging in!!

Aweee.... faces a mom and grandmom can love!! *S*

Today was also BIL Bill's 60th Birthday... so not only did we roast turkey's...we roasted Bill for his birthday too... everyone brought fun cards and jokes in honor of his OLD age...*G*



And back at home.... Kasey, Jorden and I danced the night away to music in the kitchen before bedtime... *S*

Actually, for me, it was just time for a short nap before I plan on heading out at the stroke of midnight to get some good deals on sales at a few stores for "Black-Friday".

*setting my alarm*
