Our Family Thanksgiving Gathering


Pumpkin Bread and a whole lot of food...but the best part was the fun and family fellowship!

It is such a busy life...and we don't get to gather together as often as we'd like too...so we make the best of it when we do!

Grandma always likes to hear the kids play the piano. 10 year old Silas is learning and he did a great job playing for us. And his teacher...big brother Jared played for us too. He is amazing!

Jonas is such a sweet boy! He is enjoying his meal.

Kyle and Abigail sitting together in the basement while we were opening birthday gifts.

I love this table full of kids. They are all growing up so fast!

The two oldest grandsons, Jared and Will...sporting their ponytails.

Momma and her silly girls...having some fun!

Uncle Brad at the girl's table! They love it, and so does he!

I love my girls!

Enjoying the food!

Sweet Harrison...the baby of our family!

Jared the 21 year old grandson.

Will the 16 year old grandson.

Caleb turns 15!

Granddaughter Bailey turns 19.

18 year old Abigail with her Aunt Lonna and cousin Adelynn. Addy is our baby girl and she is 12.

Sweet 15 year old Cecily with her Auntie Lisa.

I count all of these precious family members as great blessings in my life! I am truly thankful for each and every one of them!

Howdy Linda!
Your Family is amazing. You have a great Family and I think it is neat to see you with them. Aren't you glad to have the 3 girls and their families? I am thankful for my family.

As wonderful as it was to have us all together....I love each one...I am feeling my age. So tired and need this week to rest up for Christmas Season.

We are blessed to have family. The things I learn about God and Life through my Children and Grands plus relatives is life changing.

We started our Thanksgivings with a Family Dinner in Marion, Kansas. I think there was about 75 relatives there and then onto Home in Alma where there were 12 of us in the house. Alot of cooking and clean -up went on plus some games and singing Karioke ...haha this was a blast. The little ones did there share of running through the Family Room and Dining room inside as it was cold outside.

Linda, I enjoy hearing from you.

Very busy 4 days!
Very tired now. Lord Help.
God bless us Grannys,

Linda said...

Wow Deanna...dinner with 75 relatives? That's a bunch. Bet it was fun.

Then 12 at your house too. That's neat. You are greatly blessed...as am I. And we are truly grateful!

I am still worn out from last weeks activities. I am feeling my age too. I guess it happens to the best of us! (Smile)

Love you,
Linda
