We had a fantastic day of celebration and thanksgiving yesterday at our house.
There were 17 of us around two tables: six children and eleven adults.
My brother came up from New York City and stayed for the night. Always so fun to see Uncle Clay!
I was up til 2 am the night before getting ready. And I was up til 1 am last night cleaning up (and taking breaks to watch the Texas/A&M game!!). While it is tiring, I honestly love doing all of it. I truly find it satisfying to create a meaningful holiday for my family and for those who come to our house.
This morning, John kept the crew quiet and let me sleep in til 11:30 am!!! What a great husband.
Happy Thanksgiving weekend! May it be quiet and full of rest.
