I love this time of the year!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving here at the beach - all of the family was here together except for Robby and his family - we missed them. As usual, we all contributed to make it a wonderful, happy, memorable day! The nephews moved furniture and brought in tables and chairs so that all 16 of us could sit at the "same" table. Daddy smoked a turkey and a ham and they were delicious! The girls each made a dish or two to complete the delicious meal. The evening was topped off with a very generous monetary gift for each of us from Daddy, a tradition he and Mother started many years ago. And then I coaxed Bobby into playing his guitar while we all sang along to some favorite songs. I didn't get any photos, but I did take some videos that we'll enjoy for years to come! Above is an earlier photo of Bobby playing - so much fun!
