Our Church Thanksgiving Dinner-11-20-2011

My family with my mom and dad too-they are now living here 6 months out of the year. This will be our first Thanksgiving together in 14 years. We are thrilled.  (I am the purple coat~lol)
Last night, Sunday the 20th, we had our annual church Thanksgiving Dinner.  Since our church has out grown our sanctuary on Sunday morning(we had to go to three services,) we have to meet downtown at the Civic Center to have everyone fit, but it was so nicely decorated and everyone fit.  We had a wonderful time.  

Me and my baby girl.  Waiting for our dinner and trying to stay out of the chocolate cake in front of us.

Me and My Sweetheart!

Finally the cake!  The only way to eat it of course-one lick at a time. ha!

See?  Why use silverware you enjoy it more this way, one lick at a time. :)

Of course you may be glad your mom has wipes handy when you are finished.  (Don't worry I made her use her fork after the first few licks :)


We had such a wonderful time.  It has been such a joy to have my parents here these last few weeks.  It seems like they have always been here.  My kids are adjusting quite well to having grandparents here :) I am so thankful for so many blessings God has bestowed upon me this year and having my parents here to share our lives with is one of them.

This Thanksgiving I will be cooking like normal, but we will actually have my parents and a friend and her husband  here this year -10 of us(I know for some of you that is just your family size every day but for us it is just 6 normally, so- I am really excited.

I can't wait to see what you are thankful for too.

On this Pathway-
Jill
