Mama and Kressy making fudge and various other tantalizing delicacies Wednesday afternoon. Posted by Picasa
Thanksgiving morning dawned bright and warm! The Morton, Pethtel, and Sheats families joined us for the day. Here are some pictures from various proceedings of the occasion.

In which various members of our party take possession of the facilities across the street, for the purpose of running in circles, throwing balls at each other, making a substantial amount of noise, and knocking a bucket over as many times as possible! LOL! The proceedings being greatly amenable to all parties involved of course;)

Once again I am posting out of order, lol, but hopefully y'all will bear with me and not mind too much:)

After the Browns left us, Michael and Kressant arrived, and then wednesday evening the Mortons came. The Pethtel's also joined us for thanksgiving, and I'll post about that next chance I get.

Friday evening after waving farewell to the Mortons we were joined by the Stephan Porter family from Texas. They are just as precious as can be and have seven children. So Saturday the Smithy, Pethtel and Porter families headed off to Stone Mountain for the day. An excellent time was had by all!
