Thanksgiving was wonderful thanks to everybody's contribution. Thanks go

especially to Sara who outdid herself with creative planning and preparation. I am sure she was exhausted afterward if not before but we all had a good time. She started with a beautiful home-made invitation that included everyone's food assignment. All in our family were attending. Ben's family even came from California. Jay barbecued a turkey which turned out well. I have had regular turkey, deep-fat fried turkey, and smoked turkey but this was a first for me.

The cousin's enjoyed one another and Sara even had activities planned for them. One of the activities was horse riding. Sara had made arrangements to see the horses with Paul, Ralph's brother. Ben also took the kids on tractor rides.
Sara also made arrangements for family pictures on Friday at Gardiner Village, a re-created pioneer village. Each of the restored houses is a shop of some kind. After pictures, people could visit the shops. The candy shop was a big hit with grandkids (and Grandma and Grandpa).
Since we are home now, it is fun to remember all the good memories. I think all the cousins have good memories too. Thank you Sara for a wonderful Thanksgiving!

It was a fun weekend and I think everyone had a good time. I think we were all able to pull it together thanks to some good teaching and examples from our mother! :)
