Happy Thanksgiving!

We celebrated Thanksgiving at Susan's mom's house with her sister and her family and Barbara's childhood friend, Donna from Ohio.

We had sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, cranberry orange relish, cole slaw, corn, green beans, rolls, stuffing, gravy, and Turkey smoked on the Big Green Egg. We also had pecan and pumpkin pie. Mom and Donna stayed up late the night before condensing soy milk to make a pumpkin pie for me and Annika to eat. It was wonderful!

Donna passed out goodies to all of the kids after dinner and we enjoyed hanging out while Saint William took on the chore of cleaning up. (I'm keeping him!) Benaiah showed off his walking skills until I took him for a walk in the baby carrier to get him to shut down for a little while. He was a little overwhelmed by all of the people, noise, and activity at first.

It was a very nice day, and we have so much for which to be Thankful! We are so grateful to have our son home with the rest of us!
