Finally she gets around to posting about Thanksgiving....only nearly three weeks after the fact.
We spent the holiday with my in-laws and had a great feasty time. We got to their house on Wednesday evening and woke up very, very early on Thursday. Clark's childhood church has a Thanksgiving day service and breakfast; this is the second year in a row that we've been able to go. That being the case, I felt more comfortable as I was able to recognize some familiar faces and strike up more than small talk. There are very nice people there and it was completely worth the early wake-up alarm.
We came back to the house and started preparing for the family and food. I made sweet potato souffle (my mom's recipe, yum!), pumpkin pie, and chocolate delight. I loved the pumpkin pie but no one else cared for it, and everyone else loved the chocolate delight but I didn't like it at all. I'm the odd ball out, I suppose.
Anywho, here are a couple of group pictures from the day. The first is the whole gang (all the aunts and uncles are obviously Clark's relatives) and the second is our immediate family.
