Thanksgiving 2009
What happens when the children aren't children anymore? They start hosting family events! This year Amy offered to host the Thanksgiving gathering, and what a good time it was. The kids arrived the day before for sibling partying and then worked together on Thanksgiving Day to prepare the family meal. All Paul and I had to do was show up. Of course we brought something -- nut roast and some mushroom appetizers -- but the responsibility for the meal was all on the new adult generation. We enjoyed good conversation and music along with the traditional meal, and then a long walk in a streamside park where the air was fresh and invigorating. We capped the evening with a post-stroll coffee and pastries. It was a lovely get-together, and a reminder in so many ways of all we have that we are thankful for.
