We were so blessed to have Granny and my daddy again this year at my Mom's house.

Some of the food we had at Moms house. Yummy!

I don't know why I didn't take more pictures of everyone.
I must have been too busy eating.

Dessert Table!
Is that Mom's banana pudding? Wow I wish I had some of that now!
And Daddy made sweet potato pies! Yum! Yum!
Brother & Sweet Teen!
You can see more pictures of my family on my
Mom's blog!

My Sweet Granny!
My Sweet Mom!
Mom showing me and my sisters the quilt she is working on.
It is beautiful. I can't wait to see it finished.
We were so blessed to have our family all together for Thanksgiving.
We missed my son. He was home sick. We also missed my sister's husband Tom. He passed away last Christmas. Please keep my sister and her children in your prayers.

What a wonderful day we had! The food was great, and the company perfect! Your family is so great. I did not make many pictures either, I am sorry to say, as I was too busy making sure everyone was served and also visiting with everyone.

It looks like you all had a wonderful time. Isn't it great to be with all your family like that?

I didn't take a single Thanksgiving day picture - I think I was too busy eating and washing dishes :)

your mom's quilt is beautiful

Diane said...

Your day looked wonderful. Your sisters are as pretty as you and your mom. Do you have only the two? That's what Kim and I both have!

Heidi said...

Your family is so beautiful! Makes me miss mine even more than I already do.

Can't wait for tonight! I'm anxious to sew. See you there!

Great pictures, Val. Your family is just so blessed. I often think about and say a prayer for your sister.

What sweet memories you made. Lovely family.
I did not get as many pics when the grands were here as I intended either!
That food looks so yummy!!!

That's wonderful, you have your family together to celebrate the holidays with.

Where in the world can one buy fresh blueberries at this time of year?

I must live in the wrong place because I'd eat them year-round if I could!

Thanks for sharing your wonderful picutes.

Everyone looks so happy in the pictures so no doubt they really enjoyed their Thanksgiving Day at your mom's place:-) Granny looks so precious all dolled up and what a blessing indeed to have another Thanksgiving with her. xoxo

Looks like you all had a real feast. Granny looks so pretty in her black and white outfit. Your mom's quilt is going to be pretty. I love Sunbonnet Sue.

I love Granny's jacket!! She looks so stylish! So glad you had a good holiday, surrounded by your loving family. I will pray for your sister.

Your whole family are just such beautiful people. But, that Granny, all dressed up and looking like she's 60 not in her 90s. She's such an inspiration.
