So much to be thankful for!

I love Thanksgiving! I love the amazing example of the Pilgrims, the time for reflection and gratitude for God's providence, the big family meals. It's like Christmas, without the to-do list and commercialism. :-) Here is a glimpse into our Thanksgiving celebrations.

Some Indians (friendly Wampanoags, fortunately) joined my side of the family, although one of them had a cold and changed clothes before I caught him on camera. We also got to visit with Jim K. which was great fun.

My little cousins Leslie (L) and Sidney (R) were so fun to talk to and play with. Does anyone see an orange tint to Haley's skin, or is it just me?

Alaina showing off her scarf to Papi. I will (reluctantly) refrain from posting the darling pictures of the Aunts and Cousins singing The Itsy Bitsy Spider, since it was an early morning pajama party.

Uncle Kenny, Emily and the Nitchfielders out for the Christmas Light Parade. We really got into waving! The floats displayed such creativity and it was fun to do a parade at night.

More than a week spent with family - such a treat! Now it's time to get out the tree . . .
