family joy~Thanksgiving Day pics

We had a fabulous Thanksgiving! There were 35 people, including Dan, Kelly and I here for dinner.  Of course we do not have a dining room large enough to seat 35 people. ;) So, we had all the food set up in the heated portion of the garage. Actually that part of the garage is Dan's work area with all of his tools and the pool table is out there. We covered the pool table and put most of the food on it. 
Now, many of the photos have tools and garage looking items in the background. For dining, we had 2 tables in the garage, 1 table in the computer/office room, 1 table in the living room and of course the dining area table.
Dad & Mom much food...
Yes..the tv was on. Everyone had to watch the football game. Too bad the Lions lost.

I was trying to get a pic...ok Brian!!

After dinner, there was more football watching on tv, playing games, lots of chatting, laughing and going through the  ads for Black Friday sales.

Some after dinner pics...
blessed to have 3 of the children with us ..

What a group!  :-)

The festivities at our house  started around 12pm and ended around 9pm.
What a wonderful day!
We just wish that our family in Florida could have been with us.

I didn't go shopping yesterday, slept in instead!
Have a great weekend everyone.


  1. oh Pam, I should think you needed to sleep after all that cooking! Not to mentiont he clearing up! I don't envy it at alL!!!

    I'm glad you had a good time, and enjoyed yourself. Another 4 weeks and you can do it all over again!!!


  2. What a wonderful Thanksgiving you had! All that food and family! But I guess with all that family you had to have all that food!

  3. I don't blame you for sleeping in and passing on the black Friday sales! That was a huge amount of work having that many guests but I'm sure you loved every minute of it! :) (((Hugz)))

  4. Hi Pam,
    Great pictures of your Thanksgiving. We had a group as big as you and it was wonderful. I like the picture of the planning of Black Friday. We didn't go either until latee the next night on Friday and we went to the Wal Mart that the crazy lady was pepper spraying people. Crazy times. Hope you have a great week ahead. Hugs, Dru
