Thanksgiving Weekend

We had a great Thanksgiving meal - Turkey, Dressing, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy (my responsibilities) sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, creamed corn, home made 'Lion House' rolls, ham, and lots of deserts!
Jill did a great job getting the table all set nice for the holidays.
Because it was the 'off' year, both sets of our children went to their in-laws this year, and my parents went to my sister's in Houston. So we only had 9 for dinner on Thursday - it was nice, but fairly quiet.

Then on Friday night had the dinner once again, but with more of the kids and the grandkids here to share the meal a second time.

Keeping up with the family tradition, we went to see a movie after the Thanksgiving meal. This year it was A Christmas Carol - 3D version. Obviously made specifically for 3D - but still entertaining, perhaps even a bit too scary for small children.
Saturday I picked my parents from the airport then returned home to watch the big BYU -vs- Utah rivalry football game. It was another nail-biter, coming down to a final play in overtime... gratefully BYU pulled it out in the end, winning 26-23!It's sure nice having Karrissa, Joe and the two grand-daughters here in the house. I like having them visit. Too bad this was just for a couple of days. (just a pre-cursor to the couple of weeks over Christmas)

We do have so much to be thankful for - education, family, church, and a loving environment. Yep - pretty wealthy man.

Great photos Keith. I have to agree you are a wealthy family in all the right aspects. There is much love in your family. The kids get along well and McKinley and Kylie are so loved and love their Aunts and Uncles.
