Thanksgiving 2012

 Duane and Anne hosted a large group of friends who could not be with their extended families.  There were 23 people in the house at one time, lots of kids, lots of food, and lots of reasons to be thankful.
Anne wanted to ensure that her nephew, Liam, did not feel homesick for his family in Florida.  Liam enjoyed all the good food and watched a lot of football.

Colin and his friend, Jordyn, planned and executed a carnival, complete with games and prizes for all the kids.





Notice the Tootsie pop suckers - those were prizes and every kid had opportunity to win five, I think.




Colin, Micah, and Ava  read the blessing prayer before we devoured our meal.   Colin read these words so beautifully  “May the light of gratitude burn brightly in our hearts and around this table, not only on the feast of Thanksgiving but at all meals.”  





                                             

Rob, a former chef, carved the turkey.  
Anne made sure every family had treats to take home.  
Joan joined us for the day and visited while Duane updated her computer software files.
We also tested the sauerkraut that we made early in October.
