Harvest Home

Just of 4 of us on Thanksgiving Day.  It was fun enjoying our little family quietly around the table.  It seems that simple act is the first thing to go when life ramps up with busy schedules.

Kayla made the centerpiece in young women's, it was beautiful.  She was proud it made the table. 

We laughed and talked.  We enjoyed each other.  Later that evening we taught the kids how to play poker.  We used to play poker when Kyle and I were dating.  We'd go to a friends with a roll of nickles and play.  So we took out the change jar and divided it out and played.  Then we packed the change jar back up for another round.

With a day like that, what's not to be thankful for!


  1. Sounds like heaven! We played board games a lot at our house even when she came home from college for thanksgiving her fiends would all land here and beg us to play games with them. Poker that was making a memory!

  2. Looks really fun and homey. I love the centerpiece too...good job Kayla! Ours was quiet too but it was enjoyable.

  3. What a lovely day you had with your family. You will remember this one. We play a lot of board games, but we haven't played poker with the girls yet. That actually sounds like fun! I think I'll suggest it when they are home for Christmas.
