What a wonderful day we had! I was so worried that it would be filled with sadness, but it wasn't. I thought maybe I would be a nervous wreck, but I wasn't. I thought maybe it's going to be rushed like in years past, but again, it wasn't. Everything tasted delicious. We had a relaxing, enjoyable time together.
Pictures of my table...I love setting a pretty table!
Can you see the place card?
Scripture verse inside...
We each take a turn reading our scripture verse ending this year with my husband who then prays for the meal. After cleaning up from the main meal, we all gathered in the kitchen to make gingerbread houses! What a surprise! The Colonel and I spent some time Wednesday evening putting them together so they would be hard and not fall apart while little fingers were decorating them. Even the grownups got involved. I think this is the beginning of a new tradition here.
I had such a great time, I hope I can do Thanksgiving next year!
