"YOU are a Penguin Farm"

      Thanksgiving has come and gone.  Christmas is upon is.  How is that possible?  We have celebrated Thanksgiving with my family in Wichita, KS at my mom's new house.  So fun to have everyone together.  Here are the highlights, mostly in pictures.

There was a pancake breakfast on the morning of Thanksgiving courtesy of Mike and Ash (my bro and sis-in-law).  Chocolate chip pancakes are the best!

The guys played pool in the basement that Mom and Wes are going to finish soon.

Aunts and Uncles are the best at entertaining little friends.

Mom and Wes with some of her siblings and their spouses.  They did a great job cooking and baking for all of us.

Then it was time for the serious partaking of a thankful feast.  With turkey being put onto Grandma's ceramic turkey platter.  I got a shot of brother's plate.

(love the uncle photo-bombing the sibling picture)

The girls have had a truly great time with the family.  At dinner on the first night, we were eating with all of my siblings.  Lily was talking about how her peaches were actually penguin meat.  Not sure where that came from.  My brother asked her, "Have you ever been to a penguin farm, Lily?" to which she retorted, "You are a penguin farm."  Oh, how we laughed.  Though, we do not want our child to insult people, it was really really funny.
      The bounty of what we have to be thankful for is overwhelming.  Thank you, Lord, from whom all blessings flow.
