Thanksgiving 2015

Thanksgiving 2015 has come and gone. It was a great time and we were blessed to have almost everyone here for my husband's side of the family. 

In this picture six were missing. By the end of Wednesday night only three were missing! And by Thanksgiving day, we had only two people not here for at least a part of our time together. That's pretty amazing with 52 people!! 
The annual Turkey Trot started slowly, due to heavy rain, but these brave souls decided the weather wouldn't stop them!
Some ran, some walked, and some biked. I'm the official photographer of the event. I took most from the car to stay out of the rain. 😄
I just noticed our son's thumbs down sign! I guess he didn't care for the wet run he was experiencing! 😂
Zachary was designated as the official cinnamon roll maker for Thanksgiving 2015. He did a great job!
The amount of food that it takes to feed the family is tremendous! Huge catering pans are used! Yum!
The yearly "cousins" picture keeps growing and growing. It's great! There are 10 great-grandkids now!
The pumpkin bash was lots of fun. The rain broke for a while so it was less messy than we thought it would be. (Thankfully!) Now there's a huge mess to clean up. My husband mows the pumpkins down!
Games are a big part of our family Thanksgiving. This year we played a new game: "Pie in the Face". It was pretty funny - especially when someone got hit! My husband was a great sport and it hit him big time!

The week ended with an ice storm. Thankfully we kept our electricity, but many didn't. 

It was a great week having the two youngest out of school for the week and the two college kids home for several days. I'm thankful for these special times. I'm very thankful for the memories we have of Thanksgiving 2015. Thank you, God!
