It was another picture-perfect beautiful day in Southern California – 82°F / 28°C.

It was so exciting to wake up this Thanksgiving morning and realize that we are here in Southern California to celebrate our precious grandson Isaac’s “First” Thanksgiving.

Our Family

Once again Liz’s parents, Mark & Diane, spent hours preparing countless delicious dishes, and opened their home to the growing family. All five of Mark & Diane’s children, all five of their grandchildren – including our Isaac – Jonathan & Liz, Joshua & Lupe and Steve & I were gathered around the table for the Thanksgiving feast. All told, there were 20 of us sharing stories and laughing, while passing the serving bowls in countless directions, until everyone’s plates were loaded with fabulous home-cooked food.

It warms my heart and reminds me of how blessed we all are with our good health, our family, friends and love all around us.

Jonathan and Isaac

It was our grandson Isaac’s and Liz’s nephew Elliott’s “First” Thanksgiving. They are only 5 weeks apart in age. Isaac is five months old and Elliott is six months old.  Landon is 3, Avery is 3 and Emelia is 1. So as you can imagine, there was a lot of activity going on in the house. I love the sounds of kids playing and laughing and the babies taking it all in. It was so much fun to watch the interaction between all of the cousins.

That is what “Thanksgiving” is – a house filled with family, food and fun.

We have so much to be thankful for.
