Thanksgiving 2006

Yesterday, most of family got together for our Thanksgiving celebration up near Coopersburg, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was a rainy day so most of us spent most of the time inside during the afternoon and evening.

We're beginning to chow down on our Thanksgiving meal of turkey, mash potatoes, oyster filling, corn, specially prepared stringbeans, a broccoli salad, and more. For dessert, we had pumpkin pie, some cookie like bars with chocolate chips in them, another pumpkin dessert and more. Yummy!

Great memory shots. Its nice when the whole family can be together.
I think we all ate more than our share yesterday. But those turkey sandwiches today are just as yummy.

From the looks of the way the Skipbo cards are laid out, y'all play it differently than us. I'd better take another look a the rules.

Tim, I was going to invite myself over for next year until I saw the shelves full of board games. *shiver* ;) Now THAT looks like a happy Thanksgiving (despite the presence of said games).

It's wonderful to have such a large family; I would like to have a room where it may be possible to put a long long table around which many persons can seat down
When it will be Christmas time, I will go in the south part of France, my husband's sister and his brother in law are living in a very big house (two very old houses in fact one just against the other)
We'll be all togeher: children of all the family, young, less young, old, oldest persons
We'll all sleep and eat there
And have walks all together in the red rock mountain with the two dogs near us
It will be great !!!!
And I'll take plenty pictures of course !

Thanks, photowannabe. It was a great day with overflowing blessings of food and family celebration.

Hi, kevin stilley. My experience is that games are played differently in just about every family. ;)

Thanks, sage. It was a wonderful meal and a great Thanksgiving.

Hi, murf. Board games can be lots of fun when playing with family.

Thanks, cergie. Not everyone in our family has space for such a long table. But we appreciate those that do and those that don't. It sounds like you have a great Christmas coming up.

Thanks, mreddie. It was a blessed time.

Thanks, ginnie. We love to celebrate together as a family.

Thanks, samrina. Family celebrations such as these are always looked forward to.

Thanks, choochoo. It was a great time.

Thanks, irene. Comments like yours always make my day. I think the whole world should celebrate a Thanksgiving day. We all need to take time to be thankful for the blessings we experience.

Thanks, katie. It was an excellent time.

Thanks, I*IcheI*I©. These times are very much enjoyed by us all.
