for the love of Thanksgiving..

Hello everyone..

As you know this was our Canadian Thanksgiving ... 

 I hoped you might enjoy a few pics of our Thanksgiving family dinner... 


You all remember my Mom and her husband Gerald... 
They arrived first and are just waiting for the rest of us to show up.. smile...



And that we did... grin...
All 16 of us... 



Shonda has a way with decorating as you can see..


And there were some lovely conversations taking place.. 


Family china passed on down... 




Our darling grandsons having fun with the turkey pinata they were about to hang..

Sweet dear memories... 


Shonda's homemade apple pies.. 


And here is the dear hostess herself seeing us off...
Photogenic just like her Dad... smile..

Thank you, child...


God has so blessed this family.. 
And we are so thankful.. 

God bless you all...
