Family and Turkey

Good morning,

Today's post is all about being together with family.  It was wonderful to share Thanksgiving with our son and family at their lovely new home.  Our daughter-in-law's parents were also there so the children had both sets of grandparents all in the same place at the same time.
Crystal and her mother wrangled that turkey to the table while son Don gave driving directions to his sister.
There was so much wonderful food that it had to be presented on three different tables.
It was marvelous!
We adjourned to the music room for a concert by our violinist granddaughters. 
And, we met the newly acquired family pets.

What a fabulous day with family!

Now we will repeat the whole thing at our home in a few days and add a few more family members who couldn't attend this dinner.

We hope your holidays are as wonderful with family and friends.  I so enjoy reading your blogs and seeing your pictures of your celebrations.

All the best,
Lois

Looks like you had a wonderful day! The food looks very good, but best of all to share it all with family. And so nice with the two girls playing. I have also enjoyed following your travel from palm trees to fall colored trees.

Oh my, your food lay-out looks marvelous! We're back from a visit with the kids in Utah, and I'm at the computer once again. But I'm sick with a sinus infection, which I hope parts company with me soon!

What a beautiful table...I must admit it made my mouth water! How nice the children were able to celebrate with both sets of grandparents! How very fortunate you have such wonderful musicians in the family.
