Two weekends before Thanksgiving last year, I had the opportunity to crash another family's gathering. This included seven [yes, 7!] sisters and all of their families. The gathering was held at the Watertown Community Center as it was the best place to house a group of this size.
You may recognize little Henry in these pictures since I had photographed his birthday party about two months prior. Because I thoroughly enjoyed his party, I knew seeing this gang again would be great. And it was. Once again everyone was very inviting and insisted I stay for lunch.
The day included lots of catching up between family who may not see each other that often. It also included card games, passing around decorations to use as silly props, the reading of the Thanksgiving story and of course a delicious Thanksgiving meal.
I'm thankful for my pre-Thanksgiving gathering with this fine group!
