A wonderful Thanksgiving!!

What a wonderful time we had over the holiday weekend. I know I am late in posting, but I have a lot to catch up on!
A few pictures and then I'll wrap this one up.

Thanksgiving this year was quite an event as Laura hosted our feast! She really pulled out all the stops, from tasty appetizers to a tremendous Turkey! Laura and Andrew invited a family that they know to join us for dinner and we really enjoyed getting to know them. It was so much fun being together and making many memories. Johnny, Nina and Lilly came up Friday and completed the family. We had a nice dinner with them and then visited for awhile after, and took lots of pictures.

Saturday was quite a day! Laura decided to revisit an old tradition that we used to have in Port Angeles, The Cookie Bake. Lucy dressed for the occasion.

Laura, Nina, April, Christi, Laura Bolling and I all pooled our supplies and labor and baked about 13 different kinds of cookies. We have dozens of treats piled in the pantry for the holidays.

We headed home after that and have been sharing and enjoying them ever since.

It was such a special family weekend and I really appreciated the generosity of everyone involved. Laura for taking on such a huge project. Andrew, for being such a gracious host and so willing to help out. Nina and Johnny for making the drive up. April and Tim and Christian, for joining us for the Cookie bake after a long drive. And all of the wonderful people we met!
God Bless you all.

Loved these pictures and captions. I would have loved being there for the cookie bake. I could have gotten some terrific video of a very productive time! The cookies look so festive and delicious, and everyone looks HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!
Thanks for such a great blog entry.
Love, Mom and Dad
