John and I have a quiet house. We don't watch much TV or listen to loud music. We don't do much entertaining other than our small Ohio family and the occasional instructor. We have lots of room and spend most of out time together talking or playing in our art rooms. During Thanksgiving we averaged 12 people at each meal and just hanging around. It made me very, very happy to have 2 of my 3 children around and 5 of my 10 grandkids. I wish everyone had been able to come including John's brood.
My kids are scattered throughout the US so the cousins, uncles and aunts and grandparents are rarely all in one place. This time was special. We had snow for the Florida contingent, great food for everyone thanks to the culinary students, games, laughter and so much catching up on everyone's lives. It did my heart good. I love family.
We were not very good at taking photos. I guess we were too busy living it to record it. I missed the opportunity to take pictures while my son Tim and his family were here…BOTH Times! So no photos of the grand boys together or my sons together.
