A Look Back at Thanksgiving

I hope you all had a great day yesterday! I just wanted to share a few pictures I took during our Thanksgiving at my son Jason's. Pictured above are my son Jason and his wife Shari--our host and hostess for the day.
Hubby waits patiently for dinner to be ready after having indulged in some pumpkin bread as an appetizer.

Granddaughter Tanya says, "You just hold your horses! All will be ready soon!"

My older son Eric gets an early Christmas gift from his dad, my ex-husband.

Granddaughter Jamie chills out while waiting for dinner.

Five-year-old granddaughter Allie smiles in anticipation of dessert!

Tanya is a big help to her mom; even made pumpkin pie and French silk pie! (delicious, btw)

Grandson Nick watches TV while waiting for the call to dinner.

Daughter-in-law Shari poses with her beautiful daughters Tanya and Jamie. You can tell the apples haven't fallen far from the tree!

After dinner, Jamie spends a little quiet time reading with her brother Nick.

Grandson Carter and his mom, daughter-in-law Kristen, discuss the situation.

Austin, Nick, and Carter find ways to entertain themselves in the playroom.

My sons Eric and Jason relax with full bellies after a sumptious meal.

Allie talks to her mom Shari and her Aunt Kristen as they, too, relax after dinner.

I can't believe I didn't take one picture of the great food we ate....too hungry and too busy eating, I guess. Everything was delicious, from the turkey to the stuffing, to the veggies and the bread. And that French silk pie was to die for! It was a wonderful day with family. Hope yours all were as much fun.

Aren't the family dinners with the ex's interesting. It says a lot about you that you're in the same room together. Good stuff! (Always thankful to click ads!)

Oh Eva, I loved this post! I'd rather see the people having a good time than the food anyway.

You have a beautiful family and it's wonderful that they were all together.

I love the one of your grand daughter pointing, next to the RELAX sign. Too funny.

Great pictures! Thanks for sharing.

Lovely family; you have much to be thankful for.
I'm the same way with my pictures - completely forgot to take pictures of the food!

Tam said...

Thanks for sharing!! I too loved that your ex was there. That speaks volumes about both of you - what lucky children you have.

No big deal having my ex there--It's been 30 years since our divorce, and he's been married and divorced twice since!

Thanks for the compliments on my family...I'm so proud of them all!
