Joel and I just got home from our trip to MS for Thanksgiving.  We were very excited to see everyone and spend some time with our family.  We are more aware each day how much God has blessed us with our families, and we are very thankful for each and every member.

Here are some pictures so you can see how much fun we had:

 This is one of the good shots I got of Avi while I was trying to coax her to smile for a picture!  She wasn't thrilled to be taking pictures :)

Rebekah & Abbi

 After all of our Thanksgiving fun, Rebekah was worn out.  She found her a spot in the den and curled up and went to sleep! 

As you can tell we had a great time with family and friends this Thanksgiving.  On Tuesday evening before we left for MS, Joel and I got to enjoy a Mannheim Steamroller concert.  Joel took me out to dinner before the concert, and we had a great time on our date.  Here we are all dressed up:

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving too!

Georgia Thanksgiving Celebration

Yesterday Joel and I were able to celebrate an early Thanksgiving with a group of friends here in Athens.  We had a good time enjoying all of the food and company.  Here are some pictures to show the fun:

 Our smorgasbord of food...Rolls, spiral-sliced ham, cream corn, sweet potato souffle, strawberry pretzel salad, zipper peas, green beans, macaroni & cheese, dressing, gravy, and broccoli casserole.

Not pictured: Apple pie, Pecan pie, and wassail for dessert

 Clay and Marie's beautiful new table worked perfectly for our gathering.
