Thanksgiving 2014

What a Thanksgiving! 
Here are the numbers: 
11 people plus 2 dogs stayed at our house for 2 nights.
There were 15 of us at Thanksgiving dinner.
No shortage of pie. All told we had 9 pies. 
(4 pumpkin, 2 pecan, 1 marionberry, 1 mincemeat, 1 cherry)
A full table.

John and Elisa with the lego turkey. Gobble, Gobble.

Yum! Pie!

Grammy and Nora work on cinnamon roll turkeys with bacon tail feathers. 
It was very fun. I was worried that the house might feel really crowded. But it didn't. At least, not to me! It was fun to have everyone at our house for a change. Everyone pitched in with the cooking, so I didn't feel overwhelmed by that at all. A family from our church joined us, which was great. Our kids had a blast playing with their kids. And it is always so fun to watch the kiddos enjoy being with their grandparents, and aunt & uncle. Aunt Kristine is teaching Leesi to knit. So that is a fun bonding experience for them. And Uncle John brings legos that they can work on together. This time they made a lego turkey together as well as the cutest little snowman and reindeer. Lots to be thankful for!
