Thanksgiving With 60 of Our Closest Family Members...

Yes, we had about 60 family members at our Thanksgiving dinner. Want proof? Here's the crowd:

Can you imagine trying to feed all those people? We were all well fed, thanks to Aunt Marion and Uncle Joe. Here he is, slicing the ham...

And check out that spread!

We ate all this on Thursday, and then Friday night was a feast of fresh seafood. Mahi mahi, crabcakes, shrimp, hushpuppies, etc etc. We never go hungry in Uncle Joe's house!

We also celebrated my (only) nephew's first birthday! Here is his - my nephew Malachi! Isn't he the cutest??

Here he is with his parents...who live entirely too far away in Dallas. Boo. Aren't they a beautiful family?

My sister and her boyfriend took all of these photos, and they have more on their website: Check them out!

I have 155 unread items in my Google Reader (yikes!) so I can't wait to read about all of your Thanksgivings! We certainly have a lot to be thankful for. (But at the moment, FSU football is not one of them. Grr.)

How many people were at your Thanksgiving feast?


  1. Wow!!! That's a crazy large group! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!

  2. Man! And I thought our 35 person family Thanksgivings were quite the fiasco. You have an amazing spread there. I bet your wedding will be filled with lots of love and a HUGE amount of family!

  3. WOW that is a BIG family! LOVE it!

  4. Holy moly! That is a HUGE Thanksgiving gathering! But I am sure it was an amazing time getting together with that many family members!

  5. WOW! That sounds like so much fun! I love it! We were lucky to be able to spend the holiday with our families, respectively...but its looking like Xmas is just the two of us and the dog...
