Thanksgiving Memories (Wordless Wednesday)

We spent the weekend before Thanksgiving in Park City. We enjoyed lots of art projects . . .

Swimming . . .










sledding . . .



And having a great time.

Thanksgiving was spent at our house with our family and the addition of my in-laws. DH cooked a seriously delicious deep-fried turkey plus a few other things, I added some amazing rolls and brownies, and the food was wonderful.

After eating, Lillian pulled out her gratitude jar, a tradition she started last year. She'd asked us all to name things we were grateful for. As she read off each item, we were supposed to guess who had said it. Some of them were very funny.


It was a lovely day. Our house felt full to overflowing even with "just" our family and the grandparents, and I couldn't help imagining the gatherings we might have in the future, with dozens of grandkids and our grown-up kids joining us for fun and celebration. What a blessing it is to belong to a family.

I just found your blog today and love it! I also have 8 children and adore each one of them!! Mine range in age from 20 down to 2. It's interesting having one in college and one in diapers but I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you for the story about the diamonds. I'll keep that in the back of my mind for all those questions we get. Good luck with your next beautiful diamond!!
