Every year before we eat Thanksgiving dinner my family stands in a circle and we all take turns saying what we are thankful for (we give abbreviated lists, of course). It’s a simple tradition, but I always enjoy it. This year the things I am most thankful for are all family-related and God-related. I am so extraordinarily blessed! I’m especially thankful that God has blessed me with a beautiful, healthy daughter that I adore and a handsome, loving husband (that I also adore, tee hee).
Our thanksgiving dinner was a huge to-do with about 21 guests in all. I made enough green beans to feed almost twice that much… it gets hard to estimate such large quantities! We have a lot of leftovers. I also made six pies. It was a good time.
A good friend of mine took some family pictures for us, so I will close this entry with a few family photos for you. (Sorry, no knitting photos until I can find my camera cable…) My mom sewed Edda’s dress. Also, note the handknit blanket… 🙂
