So Much Thanksgiving


A rich and happy Thanksgiving for us here, with abundant food, beauty, children, and handwork.



We had eighteen people for our dinner--two turkeys and a ham. Next time I'll know to cook more. What we had was delicious, but it all disappeared on Friday!



We joined the Composer's parents at the cabin on Saturday, bringing baskets and baskets of food for this crew.

Felix found a wasp nest (and a salamander and a millipede),


and though I didn't witness it I hear he jumped nekkid in the river.


Giles wore his city shoes.


 and took the arty photos.


So thankful for my big and happy family, and our big and happy time. God is good to us!

Sounds just great. You're always game for more people over, or whatever God sends your way. (it seems)

Your posts always make me smile! I hope that when my children are older, they will love to come home as much as yours do. Yes, God is very good.

While I'm doing my best to enjoy this busy and stressful time when my children are young with endless needs and messes and wondering if I'm doing anything right, I look forward to times such as these.

Yes, a big and happy family. You are a blessed girl Anna. Glad they surrounded you...sorry your left overs didn't manage their way longer in your fridge. We had 20 this year...but somehow I always cook for a rather mediumish size army, not sure if it is a gift or a cure ;-) Leftovers were not a problem for us.

love to you
