With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Thanksgiving Brunch and Dinner

Thanksgiving Brunch and Dinner

We started our day at Jamie's for a delicious brunch and playtime with the kids



Jamie made pancakes, french toast, eggs, hash-brown potatoes, Monkey bread, sausage, bacon and a pretty punch.
 After dishes were washed it was bath time for Cambrie.
In these photos, I thought I noticed a resemblance to my baby pic (in top left photo) at least in the eyes.

Since both Jill and Jamie were planning to have Thanksgiving dinner with their in-laws and Erin wasn't able to be here, I thought our dinner would be just John, me and Abbey.  My sister said no way and invited us to join her family.
I was thrilled to spend time with her and see her four, adorable granddaughters as well as the others that were there.
It was a wonderful day of feasting, laughing and spending time together.

It was a long, wonderful day!
It started early and ended late.
Lots to do tomorrow, but it won't begin first thing.
John informed me that we are sleeping in!

Lovely day filled with family, friends, fellowship and food. I don't think I could have done lunch or dinner after that fabulous brunch! Have a great holiday weekend. Tammy

OHMYGOSH! That baby could pass for YOU! Let's hope she grows up to be as beautiful as you are! What a lovely family you have! xo Diana

What a nice day you had! There is more than a resemblance to you and the baby--twins. Now just a day or so to recover and then get back into the routine.

I do think there is definitely a resemblance! Funny, I did the same thing last night--pulled out some pics of our son at 5 months since yesterday his son at 5 months reminded us so much of each other!

Sounds like you had a busy, but wonderful day!

It was a wonderful and exhausting Thanksgiving here too! I'm finally finding time to catch up.

What a wonderful, family gathering you had. I honestly thought all of those photos were of Cambrie but that you had just Photoshopped the one of her mother! What a striking resemblance.

Just a little something from Judy said...

What a beautiful family you have, and I love that your sister invited you over on Thanksgiving Day. What a joy it is to make room for a few more at a family gathering. I always enjoy your pictures. You are right, those baby pictures resemble each other, especially with the pretty big eyes.
