In the early 1960's my mother-in-law's family began having a big Thanksgiving together with her whole family. It still continues today, stretching over a few days, and with a few fun additions that we do each year.
Meeting together for worship, along with our church family, is the beginning of the Thanksgiving time together. It's a great time of worship and praise to Our Heavenly Father for all He has done for us.
After the worship time, we gather at the in-law's to have appetizers and finger foods, along with games and lots of conversations.
Thanksgiving dinner was served in the early afternoon. There were 38 present this year. The dessert table held a lot of the pies and desserts.
The newest little member of the family had his first experience at the pumpkin bashing. He was okay with all of the excitement!
Some pumpkin launching also took place.....
And finally, a picture of my husband (left) and his uncle. They look so much alike, so from time to time, I try to get a picture of them together.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
