home again home again jiggity jig


i love each face


David and Kelli will be with Kelli's family for Thanksgiving
and Dave didn't want to miss home, family and pumpkin pie


so, we gathered to celebrate an early feast 
whoever could come
Dave and Kell drove five hours



and late at night we ate


 we sang and played music


boy howdy she can sing


we had "billy boy"


mother and son


girls twirled


this one posed


the fire blazed


they shared stories and did girlie stuff












kitchen table before Monopoly took over


Val looking lovely


all that way
to be here less than a day


his mandolin was on fire!


making memories


and soon we will travel
all that can come

"over the river and through the woods"
to be with Alison and Doug's family

How wonderful that you got to celebrate early. I love your attitude...if they can't all be together for Thanksgiving, then just move the date up!

You throw a great party! Thanks again. The food was delicious, the fire so cozy and the company was the best. Such a nice evening.

Love the beauty of home and family. And I'm with you. Boy howdy can she sing!

It looked like a great time. I'm so glad that you document the gathering so well! Love you!

p.s. you're a good sport to always let your girls paint their nails on your nice table. I'd be tempted to throw everyone out in to the garage if it were me!
