Thanksgiving 2011

This Thanksgiving we had a wonderful time of fellowship with the D. Family.
We spent the evening giving thanks to God for His blessings to us, talking, singing, and of course eating delicious turkey!

See for yourself what our day looked like!


We dressed up in honor of the First Thanksgiving.
The cutest little Pilgrim boy ever
He was joined by his sister...

...Who was also a Pilgrim with her baby!

And Ben was just hilarious as an Indian!
He was so excited to dress up!

I even pulled out my Indian costume from two years ago...

Shiloh and I made a dessert that was an old recipe from our tribe.
It had a Germanic influence and tasted remarkably like German Chocolate Cake!


The parents talking before the meal.

The feasting begins!

The other table.

The father talking.

After the meal we sang some hymns and shared some other fun music together.

Singing our latest, greatest song called, "All God's Creatures Got a Place in the Choir!"

The D. children blessed us all with their original A to Z Bible verse songs.  They were wonderful songs and the singers were so cute!  :) 

The happy bunch of onlookers!

"Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, [and] bless his name.  For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations."
~Psalm 100:4-5

You had some very cute little pilgrims and braves over there! Looks like your Thanksgiving was very festive!

Also I watched the adoption trailer you also posted. Is the entire movie on line?
