We had a full house this year for Thanksgiving. My parents, sister, little brother, big brother, and his wife joined Kris, Jennika, Rebecca, Michael and I for the weekend. It was wonderful to get to be home for a holiday and be the hostess and my family was so generous to make the long trip. Here are some highlights:

This year we had a Talent Show in the evening. Everybody brought a “talent” (we used that term loosely!) It was hilarious, informative, and so much fun to perform for one another. I hope it becomes a tradition.

It was such a fun weekend! I am so grateful to have such a wonderful and loving family. I am realizing what a blessing it is that we just like each other and want to spend time together.
