Thanksgiving at Steve & Joy’s home

posted in Uncategorized |

This year, my brother and SIL hosted Thanksgiving dinner in McPherson.  It was their first time to host a Thanksgiving meal and they did a great job.  We had smoked turkey, real mashed potatoes, gravy, creamed peas, creamed corn, marshmallow jello salad, banana strawberry jello salad, homemade wheat & white bread, crescent rolls, 7 layer salad, yams, potato salad, spinach salad, and for dessert there was almost a pie for every person…cherry, cherry cheesecake, pumpkin cobbler, and I think an apple and pumpkin.  They also had a chocolate fountain and cheeseball to snack on.  Nobody went away hungry. 

At the gathering were my parents, Joy’s parents, Joy’s grandma, and our family.  Her brother and family couldn’t make it, which contributed to the abundance of leftovers. 

Before dinner, my Dad, Zach & Zane went outside and kicked a ball around for a while.  After dinner, my mom took Zane outside for a walk.  They ended up running into another group of kids who were tossing a football around and joined them for a while, then went walking around, finding a bridge.  The lake was low, so there was no water under the bridge, but Zane had fun walking across the bridge and through the steep sides of the ditch.

Now, the pictures.  The little pictures were taken by my mom’s camera, the bigger ones by ours.

    Jennifer, that hat and mittens set looks great. Plus, he seems to want to wear it…that in itself is an accomplishment. :)

    You look pregnant, but still haven’t popped yet, eh? You look wonderful. Happy Thanksgiving.

    You do indeed look pregnant. You are so lucky to have found maternity jeans. The only place that sells maternity clothes around here is Wal-Mart. When we looked, they had lime green and bright pink cords and two or three pairs of black pants and of course, no shirts that even *remotely* matched the pants. So we got the biggest pair of black ones. But I wish they had jeans… I think that hat/mitten set is really cute. It looks like you had a really good Turkey Day. I like the pictures, and especially that close up one where Zane is *I think* laying on the bridge. That one looks like it was professionally done. Hope you had a good Turkey Day, and hope you have a good night.

    God bless you and yours,
