Now that the last of the turkey has been purged from our refrigerator, I have to say that we did enjoy again, another joyous feast. The most important part of the celebration was having some of our children and their family here for the visit. In all, it would have been better only if all of them had come, but where would we have put them.
If your used to these types of family gatherings, if everyone of our children and their family came, we would have asked to use perhaps the cultural hall at one of our meetinghouses (2, within 1 block of our home). Maybe there, we would have enough room for everyone.
Anyway, we had fun with the grandchildren and it was great to see cousins play together. The weather was unusally warm at this time of the year, and that made things more enjoyable. I can see that the little ones are begining to show their growth and how much more older they act.
Here is Christian, George, Anna, and Henry being called for dessert. They were having more of an enjoyable time on the Playstation 2 games.
Also on this weekend celebration was to celebrate our eldest daughter, Leslie's birthday. Again another milestone in our lives.
Here is Grandma, Leslie, and Anna holding up a wall hanging.

So, in all, it was a very nice time at Thanksgiving, celebrating Leslie's birthday, and spending time with family.
