Our Thanksgiving celebration

We love Thanksgiving! It’s always a great time for us when we are with family. And when we are away from them we like to invite some of friends over for lots of food and a fun time.  When we lived in Moscow, we had two big Thanksgivings with our friends.  This year we wanted to keep it going, so here are some shots from the evening we had.


We found a turkey (they are very hard to get here and expensive!) This one was from France and was only about 6 pounds.

One happy Hubby!


Excited for dessert?


It isn’t thanksgiving without pumpkin pie… and cool whip!



I’m thankful for…


…our three beautiful, healthy and happy children.


 …a loving husband and a fun daddy.


…helpful princesses who like to vacuum.


…silly girls who wear their sisters underpants.


…peaceful nap times.


…sisters who show love to each other.


…daily reminders of never-ending love.

Happy Thanksgiving!


We were able to be with Katrina’s family  and some of Micah’s family for Thankgiving this year.  Micah’s dad, step-mom and step-sister drove up to be with us for the Thanksgiving weekend, from Virginia.  It was nice being able to be with them for the holiday this year and enjoy some relaxing days together.  On Thanksgiving day, all of Katrina’s dad’s side of the family, the Renno’s, have a big meal together.  Last year there was barely enough room for everyone in my cousins house, so this year they needed a bigger place.  They ended up holding it at the church we attend in town, which has a lot more room that a normal sized house.  It wasn’t homey feeling like it’s nice to have, but it was a great place to be able for everyone to sit around the table, at one time, and the kids had lots of room to run and play, inside and out.  It was so nice to be in PA this year for Thanksgiving and be able to enjoy family time.

On a different note, we still have not gotten a camera… these pictures were taken by my Dad.  Thanks Dad!
