Thanksgiving Day

We had our 1st Thanksgiving Dinner of the day at my Parents with all my siblings {but Tom & Joze.}
I could take one of Mom's homemade rolls right about now. ...and thanks to my 3 sissies for helping me peel all those hard boiled eggs to make these scrumptious deviled eggs. (They looked all the prettier on Granny Mattie's deviled egg plate she gave me.)
The kids played with cousins Ethan & Carson 
that they hadn't seen in a while.

Then it was over to the McCleve's for our next Family Dinner.
~How we wish sweet Emmie could have been there this year.~ 
This year her Dad Jason gave the Thanksgiving Dinner prayer that left us all in tears. As we said Amen our only desire was to have Emmie there for them. The food sat on the counter for a while as we had to wait for our appetites to reappear. Our hearts break as we see them suffer through these 1sts without her. We all went around the table saying what we were thankful for. Another time that put me in tears.
We mainly ate dessert here since our bellies were beginning to bulge...
The guys played pool
The girls gabbed & held the babies
(i think carrie was making a funny in this one)
Lace & Ash caught up on their sleep...(how does Ash lay in those weird positions?)
The 4 younger boys playin' ball in the backyard.
The 3 little ones chillin' as they check out the magic of a cell phone.

~Another wonderfully, long Family Fun filled day.~
