Thanksgiving Eve 2013

our family on Thanksgiving Eve morning

David and the boys
That night I had some of my family over for supper.  I always wish for everyone to be there but I understand that many had other obligations.  I love having all of the family together.  My mom came early and brought some fall decorations to put out.

I was so glad that my brother was able to be there.  I have not seen him in over 8 years.  It was the first time for him to meet my boys.  I have not mentioned it on my blog but his 17 year old son passed away after a long battle with a brain tumor just a few days before we arrived home.  It has been terribly sad for our whole family.  Please keep them in your prayers.

Some of our food. We had a feast!
After everyone ate we all piled in the living room and watched "Charlie Brown Thanksgiving".  That is a tradition we started with our boys and I loved that we got to include family this year.  It was a fun night and we look forward to all getting together again real soon.
