Thanksgiving 2012

We were so blessed to spend Thanksgiving with some very special families.  One of the most unique moments of the day was when we passed around five kernels of corn and each shared some things that we were really thankful for.  Mr. S. brought up the point of how people often say that they are thankful for things, but forget Who we should be thanking.  All these things are possible by the Lord and we must not forget to thank Him for it.

We spent the day and evening eating (the new diet we are all on is "sea food and eat it"), talking, visiting, and playing Four on a Couch.

 Evan S. really captured the warm, intimate environment of the dinner.

Sitting with friends.

 Benjamin and Yvonne S. having a great time!

And over on our side of the table (a.k.a the fun side), Elanee S. and Elsie D. are beaming!
 Settling down for a game of "Four on a Couch".

Getting strategies in mind!

 Elise D. and I plotting something, I'm sure!

Jordan getting ready to make a guess...

 We played "Boys vs. Girls" and in the picture, it looks like the boys are ahead!

As the game got more confusing and muddled, certain players decided that they need some comic relief: Swapping glasses!

Elanee S. is not sure these are in her color palette!  ;)

Glasses definitely change your looks!

Love this one of Elise!

"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
