The table was set ready for all to come and enjoy good company and great conversations. The weather was safe for the travelers to come through the gorge to join us so that made us all happy. There have been years when the snow and ice have affected the travel, some of you all know who live here in the Pacific Northwest winter can sometimes change our travel plans.
The turkey was cooked to perfection by Roger, he cooked it in the Trager grill which does an awesome job, it was very moist and delicious. With all the other dishes we were certainly full after that meal. Thanks goes to all who helped to prepare this meal for all to enjoy.
Kathy holding a plate of Bruchetta one of our appetizers, Kathy was a great help to me this day, as well as Kim , at the end of the dinner they took care of the dishes, which is hard thing for me to let go of any of the responsibilities of the whole day. Thank you Kim and Kathy.
You can see we are pretty packed in here at the table, we decided to add all the kids to the big table which turned out just fine. When we have big dinners like this we do like to all be at the table together rather than do a buffet style, where you still visit but it is not quite the same.
A closer view of the opposite side of the table.
Kathy and Mike are Roger's sister and brother, they both live in Hood River, Oregon, we were blessed to have them come and bring their family with them.
Kim and Jessica are going through all the sales adds trying to figure what they want to put on their Christmas list.
You can see by the adds strewn all over the coffee table had been gone through well, except Chants and Ashton found it more important to play with the match book cars, that is way more cool to them.
Here Jennifer, Jeremy and Kevin checking out those adds to see where they are headed out to do their shopping early.
My oldest grandchildren, Jessica and Chants diggin on their desert, probably to them that was the best part of the dinner.
Jordan, Jennifer's son he is always styling, Jennifer does such a great job making sure the boys are dressed to the "T" I know there will come a time when she won't have much say, but for now she does and we all get to enjoy them in their handsome clothes.
My sister-in-law Kathy and I, we have been very close through all these years of knowing each other and I feel very blessed to have her as my sister, not mention her brother is my husband Roger. I hope your Thanksgiving was very memorable. Blessing to you all. Florence
