The Official Thanksgiving Photo 2010

Hubs and I survived the on slaught of the masses. We are a motely group. They came, the ate, they visited and in a instant...they left as soon as they came. Whew... I am glad that is over!


Hubs' sisters are in the green and blue shirts. Hubs wearing the red suspenders and I am next to SIL in the green shirt. Our youngest son, Hunter is standing behind SIL in the green shirt. They are a wide and diverse group of people. We have a couple of teachers in the group, some teach high school, some teach college, some are retired and some are old. Some are in college, some still in high school. A few of them have Phd.s and for sure they all know too much and won't hesitate to tell you. LOL! The oldest is seventy-five to the youngest that is three. Toss in the odd ball florist(me), one neices's husband is a city landscaper, and hubs who works in the oil field, and a fireman(Hunter) and all in all we are a pretty nice family.

Behind us is a huge hole in the wall from a TV cabinet that Hubs took out. The carpenter could not get it done before Thanksgiving. He is coming Monday. And thus ends the yearly family get together until next year.

Pam,

What a pretty family photo. Now that is one large family.....it must be fun, everyone talking at once, and laughing and eating. But ah....when all is said and done - quiet is so beautiful, until next year. (o:

A most beautiful family.

Hugs,
Joyce

Looks like a very happy family, and that's about the best one can ask for!

Finding Pam said...

Joyce, I will tell myself that every time I look at the photos, but I am really glad it is all over. Awh....hear the silence?

Xmichra, I have to tell you that the moments before the pictures were hilarious. Some one always says something too funny. That is what I want to remember, not all the stress I was under(self-imposed).

Thanks again :)

Finding Pam said...

Dawn, thank you for the sweet comment. I hope you got pictures of your family? How is Justine and your sweet sister?

You are most welcomed for the cards. I am excited that they finally came to Newfoundland.

Love your beautiful down to earth family photo. You look like a family I would like to have Thanksgiving Dinner with and hang out with.

Another Thanksgiving full of momories.

Annelisa said...

That's a lovely bunch o' folks there! I imagine you did the cooking? That must've been a task and a half in itself! It's hard to sit down and enjoy when you are being the hostess with the mostest, so hats off to you gal!

Finding Pam said...

Annalisa, this year I let others do most of the cooking. My SIL was in charge.

sarah said...

What a great picture. I am glad you had a Happy Thanksgiving! Despite all the trouble this year (for me) I still love this holiday, because it does bring family together...

Travis Cody said...

That's what it's about, isn't it? Happy Turkey!

jennifer said...

Yes indeed Honey, you have a beautiful family. Thanks for sharing your blessings with us!

Great family photo Pam. It may be hard work but it's great when families get together isn't it? :)

Just Be Real said...

Nice family photo to cherish Pam. Blessings.

Lily said...

Awww I love it! Family pictures are such happy things for me, especially the big ones, because you can see the hope and excitement in the children, the wisdom and love in the adults. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend :)

Chickie said...

Phwew, I can't imagine putting on dinner for a crowd like that!

All I can think is, "How many pounds of potatoes did she cook?" lol

Ferd said...

They certainly do appear to be a motley crew.
I'm glad you all got together, and from what I hear you say, I'm glad they left in a hurry! LOL

Nah, I'm sure you exaggerate a bit. I like my peace and quiet, too, but the holiday gatherings are crazy by design. Memories are made. "Love" is shared.

Family... you can't live with them, and you can't shoot them!

It sure is fun to have a big family photo. It's nice to see you and your family.

Oh, I did crochet the 1930s pattern. Actually I am kind of guessing on the date. I got the pattern out of an old booklet that my mom had from the Hand Crocheted Royal Society. The booklet is missing the first few pages, but by the patterns inside I guessed the date to be around the 30's.

What a wonderful photo my friend. Huge family but that only makes for more loving and there isn't anything better :)
