Thanksgiving Weekend


We were blessed to spend a great 5 days with some of our family - Mom & Dad Muth, Mary & Malcham. Anna, Tom, and their kiddos, Karissa & Christian, were able to come up on Wednesday as well, and we had a great time catching up a little with them. Nate & his wife Lissa were also here for the weekend, staying with Mom & Dad Forbes, and we were able to get in the Forbes Family Christmas Present opening ceremony in as well. Aaron was pretty excited to meet all his relatives, and our Thanksgiving day celebration went very well with 16 people in our house! We got a couple of folding tables and a more than a few extra chairs, add a bunch of good cooking potluck style (and of course, our 7 pies) and it was deliciosso!! We also had a chance to tell 5 things we were thankful for and it was really cool to hear thankfulness to God pour out of everyone! We are so blessed to have a Christian family!!!

Thanks for the pics. Sounds like you guys had some great family time! Don and I also did the 4:00ish shopping on Friday! Good Time, Good Times!

Great pics! The latest family pic of the three of you is really good. You are braver souls than me to face the Black Friday crowds (did it the first year we were married and I ended up by myself at ToysRus in tears) - Mike and I just hibernated this year.
Love the game Apples to Apples! Looks like you had a great Thanksgiving!

I'm impressed! All those people at your house for dinner! Wow! What's even more surprising is that it looks like everyone is eating off real plates not paper ones! Great job!

Thanks for sharing the pictures. I'm so glad Mom, Dad, Malcham, and Mary were able to go, even with the Tom and Anna's clan showing up (what a treat!).

I'll have to hear more about Mom's pink luggage. Hope Christmas is just as thrilling!

I am so glad that you were able to have a wonderful Thanksgiving with so many. What a blessing to share all God has done for you guys this year with Aaron, the house and so much more. Also, it was great to meet Michael's family when they were here.
