Thanksgiving at Our Home

We had such a very special Thanksgiving, complete with our traditional menu (same every year, by demand….uh…request). All 10 of us were here, and that alone was enough to make it special!

Sassi loves Dawson!

Mamo particularly likes the turkey feather that says “God” as one of the things Dawson is thankful for!

The highlight of our time together is our “thankful for” time, when we, like many other families, “go around the table” and tell what we are thankful for, making sure to give glory to God for all His wonderful blessings! It is always an extremely emotional time at our table, but, as one family member mentioned, one of the things we are thankful for is that we can have “real” conversations as a family. This has been a challenging year for many of us, in many ways, but we are thankful that Our God is big enough to cover it all!
