Today was Thanksgiving.  Nick made the pumpkin pies.

Carol prepared the tables beautifully, and we used the nice plates and silverware.

The nieces liked the fancy napkin folding, so Carol taught them how to do it.  She’s a really good teacher, very patient.

And here’s one of the nieces with her finished product!

We really have a lot to be thankful for.  Before the meal we mentioned a few things, like our family and friends, and the blessings that let us live comfortably and happily.  Nick said a nice prayer of thanks for our blessings.

After the meal, and after the dessert, we played a fun game with color-coded cards.  With so many people in the house, it was a little hot inside, so some of the children went outside and played on the front lawn.
