Family Thanksgiving - Feast for the Eyes

Thanksgiving weekend all six sibling families with Mom and Dad celebrated together.  With cousin Audrie family up from Portland, we made 40, and Megan so graciously and beautifully hosted.  Meg and the girls filled the farmhouse with lavish tables complete with name cards and sharpened new pencils to write our thanks.
Gathering altogether in one place!

Vera and Naphtali

Brothers with their Heads Together - The things they could do with those four heads together!
Havilah directed the games!  Mayflower races with cork and straws!
A Spectacular Local Feast
Chocolate brownies and pumpkin pies arrive.  Apple/Quince crisps are bubbling in the oven.
Little beauties with a handsome Nathanael smiling on the end.
