Thanksgiving

Twenty four of us sat down to celebrate Thanksgiving at Peppers in-laws. I'm always reminded of my childhood when I join them. With no dishwasher we scurry to do dishes the old fashioned way. Many of the matriarch's dishes are similar to my moms, as well as her floor and cupboard knobs.

 It's comfortable with constant giggles and  chatter as eight of the ten kids kibitz back and forth  catching up!


Everyone doted on the five day old nephew. Bryans sisters first child. Everyone inquired  when his brothers wife would have their fifth, due in a few weeks. 

  
 It's hard to say how long these large gatherings will last as families grow and parents age.
I can think of  nothing better  to be thankful for than this wonderful large family who include us with so much love! And these two who brought us all together!

Happy Thanksgiving (a little late!) From the looks of the table you had a feast! What could be better than a huge family gathering and the welcoming of a new little one into that happy group. You and Pepper have a wonderful extended family.
