Sorry, This is posting so late. I have been having problems with our website for weeks now and my domain name. It didn’t renew as I thought it did and a company bought it. I am in a long process to try and buy it back. Long Story! For now I have to use Parentsofadozen.blogspot.com. I hope I am able to buy it back, because right now all of my links go to .com, which is really messing up every post and all of my tabs. Sorry for the inconvenience! I thought I would post this anyway. Better late than never!
We have a lot to be thankful for; our family, friends, food, house, and a job. We have been very blessed through the years especially with all of our children. We feel that each and every one of them have been the the biggest blessing. We could not imagine what life would be like without them. They have been very good to us as well.
We had a small gathering for Thanksgiving. Our oldest daughter and her family were on vacation for the week and our oldest son and his family were at the in-laws house for Thanksgiving. So the day just wasn’t the same. below are some pictures from the day.
We were without an oven this year (The igniter is not working and we are looking into getting a new one or a new oven) so we had to improvise. We cooked the turkey in a roaster, the stuffing in a crock pot and the other things were cooked on the stove or brought from our guests. My mom made homemade pies. Yum!
Our daughter Elisabeth.
Our daughter Mary (33 months).
Here are our younger boys, Johnanthan and Thomas.
William and Johnathan.
Hubby and our brother-in-law.
Here are some pictures of some of the food we served. My favorite stuffing,
Lemon Zest Broccoli,
of course, turkey.
Corn Bread Stuffing, which was great for the gluten free people.
gravy is a must for the mashed potatoes, turkey, and stuffing.
and yummy desserts.
My mom makes the best apple pies.
This is a picture of us, Sharon and Doug, for those of you who do not know us.
We a few people over. We had Doug’s parents,
Our daughter and her new husband, (We are grateful to have such a wonderful son-in-law.)
My sister, her husband, and a family friend, priest also were here. ( I didn’t get their pictures). We were happy to spend the day with everyone. When it was over we just relaxed and watched a Christmas movie.
I hope you all had a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving.
What did you do for the day? Did you host or go somewhere?
