It has been a great holiday weekend. Special times together as family seem to get more special as the years go by. I just wanted to share a few highlights of the weekend.
Thanksgiving meal. We always eat at my mother in law's home. She prepares a huge feast for over 20 of us. This year, the daughter in laws insisted on helping her with some of the food. We were all a bit nervous of how our food would compare to hers, but it all turned out wonderful.
My side of the family is much smaller and we enjoyed a time of fellowship with them that evening over dessert and coffee.
Holidays mean family visits for us and we had my husband's brother's family come in. The cousins had a great time playing together and my sister in law spent a day at my house helping me put up the Christmas tree.
Saturday night we again gathered at my mother in law's home for a huge fish fry. All the men in this family like to fish and they caught a bounty of fish for us to enjoy.
Today, I"m still stuffed from eating all weekend, but full of warmth, thankfulness and great memories. Tomorrow will be back to school, work and the busyness of life. I plan to keep the warm memories of this weekend along with a thankful heart close and hope to reflect that to others!
