1 Chronicles 16:34 - Give thanks to the Lord,
I don't have a picture from EVERY past Thanksgiving Day celebrated by my family, but here are some I found, starting in 1993...
for He is good; His love endures forever.
|Playing games has always been a fun Thanksgiving Day event. Here, in 1993, we are playing "Fast Scrabble" at Grandma's house. Pictured from left to right: Mom, Dad, my brother Daniel, his wife Julee, one of my nephews, and Grandma.|
|1995 at my sister's house. Pictured: Grandma, my nephew James, my brother Daniel, nephew Ryan, Me, brother-in-law Darren, and niece Amanda. |
|1998 - Our first Thanksgiving with our little EL. We are at the home of David's parents - the home he grew up in. |
|1999 - Hanging out at our house on Thanksgiving Day. Pictured: Dad (taking a picture), my nephew Ryan, niece Amanda, Me, Mom, and I think that is the top of Grandma's head next to Mom. |
|2001 - I love this picture of Grandma with little EL, holding hands on our way in to a restaurant. We decided not to cook that year, and all went out to eat. |
|2002 - A fun picture of my dad and little EL at Grandma's house.|
|2003 - Another great picture of Dad - this time with little JJ - at Grandma's house. My nephew Ryan and Grandma are also in this picture. |
|2004 - We had Thanksgiving with David's side of the family this year. |
|2007 - Celebrating an early Christmas on Thanksgiving Day at Grandma's house.|
|2008 - Mom & Dad came to our house on this year.|
|2010 - This was one of my favorite Thanksgivings. Both my parents and David's parents were at our house that year, as well as David's brother. |
|2016 - This was our last Thanksgiving with Dad - another favorite year for me because all of us were together that year - Mom, Dad, my sister, brother, Me, and some of each of our families. |
Enjoy your Thanksgiving Day. Celebrate the blessings the Lord has given to you.
