Thanksgiving 2009

We had the great pleasure of being invited by my best friend since the 7th grade for Thanksgiving. In turn, we had Thanksgiving at her daughter's house.

My friend's son-in-law is one of seven siblings and all gather at his house along with other family and friends. I photographed eight tables and may have missed one or two.

We started off with mushrooms filled with sausage and cream cheese, prepared by a grandson. I could have stopped right there.

Food was everywhere. Hubby and I have never seen so much food, but then we come from smaller families.

Sides overflowed onto the kitchen island.

Desserts. There was another cabinet for desserts. This photo was taken early, before 2/3's of the family and friends arrived. Both cabinets were covered with desserts. I had the Italian Cream cake, pictured in the upper left corner. :D

One brother went to Texas and the other brother went to A&M. Vincent arrived wearing an A&M shirt, but the older brother got him to change into the Texas shirt. lol

Thanksgiving in Texas must included football in the background if Texas and A&M are playing.

Trying to find the delay switch for group family photos with Grandma.

This is one of many group photos. Doesn't Grandma look totally delighted?!

We had an incredible Thanksgiving thanks to my dearest friend and her most gracious daughter and son-in-law. I hope you did too

Until next time, God bless.

The mosaic of the tables is great, the decorations are beautiful. Like you I'm from a small family so that looks like enough food for a small army.

Love the photos, everyone looks happy and well fed. Glad to hear you had a great Thanksgiving.

You guys look as if you're doing it up right. Happy belated Thanksgiving. I may have to steal that mushroom & sausage idea. Sounds great.
