Thanksgiving

We hosted Thanksgiving at our house and it was such a fun few days. We had Len, Carole and Teresa, Mom and Glenn, Erin and Josh, and Steve's cousin Rich and 2 boys Iain and Shane. It was awesome having everyone at our house to visit and a fun filled several days.

Many photos from Thanksgiving Day -

Luckily she knew just the right amount of seasoning that we needed!

Erin made some outstanding appetizers, and everyone enjoyed them while we cooked. Dinner was great - we had turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, corn, stuffing, fresh cranberry sauce, and corn muffins - and apple and pumpkin pie for dessert!

It was a wonderful Thanksgiving. We've got so much to be grateful for, and it was nice to reflect on it for the day and enjoy such a great time with family.
