It's been a great Thanksgiving day for us! So much for which we are thankful!!
All of the extended family were available on the same day...for the first time! We sat down 16 at the table. I enjoy using the formal china (parts of 2 sets) and crystal so that the younger ones will not be intimidated when they encounter a fancy table setting in the future. It's a lot of work, but I only do it for that many people once a year.
This year we also celebrated 2 birthdays: My youngest granddaughter had a birthday yesterday, and my eldest granddaughter has one on Sunday.
This photo is of me with all my "recently acquired" grandchildren. The eldest joined our family this summer when my youngest daughter married. The two younger ones joined us in 2011 when my elder daughter married their Dad. On the right edge you can see part of my husband, Rick.
I wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving, too!
