Happy Thanksgiving!

Ahhhh, Thanksgiving! The turkey turned out great, thanks to my sister Karen's yummy recipe.

Dave did a fine job carving it. :)

Moxie did a fine job supervising and cleaning up any scraps that happened to fall.

Caroline set the table and made place cards. Beautiful job, Caroline!

Evan provided the beautiful turkey centerpiece that he made in preschool.

My parents brought many yummy side dishes. Here's our family gathering for Thanksgiving 2011! We used the china that I inherited from my Aunt Shirley, the set that we always had Thanksgiving dinners on at her house. We miss you, Aunt Shirley!

After the big meal, Dave and my brother, Bill took the kids on a hike at the marsh behind our house. Don't you just love Bill's hat? (OK, you're right, it's Caroline's!)

The hikers!

Our soon-to-be five year old!

Sweet Caroline!

and last, but not least, our handsome oldest sons, Seth,



Doesn't this boy look huge? He's growing up so fast!

Our youngest and their favorite dad

He's just a big kid...Bill climbing a tree

After the hike, we rearranged the living room and set up the Christmas tree (and a few other smaller trees).

And after all that, we watched a little football. My brother was kind enough to dote on Moxie...she LOVES him!

It was a wonderful Thanksgiving. Hope yours was too!
