My mom hosted Thanksgiving dinner this year and we had about twenty people at our house. We started eating around 1 pm and people were here for the first round of leftovers. I saw lots of extended family that I only see at holidays. My two cousins are both married with kids and my little cousins grow like crazy between visits. Here is a big family picture – minus a few people that had to leave early.
Wade’s family also had Thanksgiving in Paducah so we drove to Reidland for a visit. Wade’s parents, grandparents, sister Emily, Emily’s boyfriend Brian, and a few members of his extended family were all recovering from a big meal when we arrived. There were a few naps and some Christmas discussion throughout the evening.
