We had both sets of parents along with my brother, his wife and new baby with us for Thanksgiving.  Here are a few photos.  I have been too busy to craft a really thoughtful post about Thanksgiving, as we are planning for a two week art show opening this Friday.  Here are a few photos from Thanksgiving...

The table...

The food (this is what comes from having four families making food for the day!) ... oven roasted turkey, smoked pork loin, smoked Boston butt, smoked turkey, cornbread dressing, gravy, squash casserole, creamed corn, collard greens, gourmet potatoes, green beans, purple hull peas, sweet potato casserole...

...lime jello salad, deviled eggs, Greek salad of broccoli & cauliflower with feta cheese, homemade cranberry relish, canned cranberry relish, pickled and olive assortments, French silk pies, pecan pie, and a homemade carrot cake. Abundance would be an understatement... but everyone had their favorite things!  And leftovers to go for one and all!

I am exceedingly thankful for all the wonderful blessings God has given me and at the top of the list is my family. Praying your Thanksgiving was warm, wonderful, and filled with loved ones.


  1. What a wonderful day and a great blessing to have both sets of parents with you for the feast as well as the rest of the family! Beautiful family, beautiful table, and yummy looking food. God is so good to pour out His many blessings on us.

  2. How wonderful to celebrate Thanksgiving with both sets of your parents! And a sweet little baby, too. The feast looks bountiful and scrumptious! Thanks be to God.

  3. Your spread of food came close to the amount that the Pilgrims had. Hahaha! What a wonderful amount of choices! I bet no one went away hungry that day. If those young people belong to you, they are beautiful. You are one blessed person! I am happy that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.
