Because of the size of the group, my parents have started reserving the church for Thanksgiving dinner, and it works out great. We eat in the room right next door to the kitchen, and as the little kids finish up, they can go play in the gym, leaving the adults to talk and be able to actually hear each other!
|I needed to include this picture of my sis-in-law Ori. She had her baby two days after this picture was taken. They were sure it was another little boy, but surprise!! They're two boys and two girls now.|
|Me, Katie and Judy Brazofsky, a family friend.|
After the dinner we did some fun projects with the kids - made snow globes, and painted Christmas ornaments.

|Kami and Eli giving it a whirl with stunts and everything!|
We all went home around 7:00 after a full and fantastic day. On Friday and Saturday, two of my other siblings and their children showed up and we got to see them as well. Bring on Christmas now! Those Christmas carols and gathering with family has got me in the spirit!!
