Om and I ate a nice meal at home mid-day, and then set off to have some fun. This was our first stop, our pastor's house and their guests. (Just a note... I'm just showing one picture from each location. It's Thanksgiving! Most everyplace had lots of people there.)
Everyplace we went, we had people do a little project. Each person had to write something they were thankful for on a paper "turkey feather." Here you see this project in progress.
The feathers were fit into the tail of an origami turkey, which went to whatever home we went to next. Here, friends Doug and Cathy show off the turkey they were given. Their family isn't coming till the weekend, so they were happy to have some company and a little fun. You might notice that Om has a basket.
The basket had a selection of those breads you saw yesterday. We passed those out along the way.
The picture above doesn't begin to show the number of people at this place. However, the lady on the left is my friend Betty. She was the first friend I made when we moved up here in 1969. Their dinner was being held at her second daughter's house, with 19 people! All four daughters were there, seven of the 8 grandchildren, and a collection of boyfriends/girlfriends, and spouses. The only one missing was the granddaughter who just had the first great-grandchild. An amazing group!
Our final stop was with a family who was home alone with sick kids, so they enjoyed the visit.
We weren't quite out of breads, but we were almost out of daylight, and Om isn't 100% better from his cold yet. So we came home.
We had a great time!
