5th and final Thanksgiving meal

We had our final Thanksgiving celebration tonight with Jason's mom's side of the family.  This year was her youngest sibling Judy's turn to host.  She and her husband live in Colorado.  Instead of the whole family going out there, they came here and hosted dinner at their family's church.  She was a missionary in Yemen for many years before meeting her husband and returning to the United States.  They had an area set up called a mafraj (living room) that the kids enjoyed playing in!
These three were so cute when it came time to say the blessing.

One of the great grandkids brought his ride on train and Emmy hijacked it and had a blast being pulled around the gym on it!

There were at least 60 people there!  We had a wonderful time visiting with family near and far! 

And not to worry, we had the VT/UVA game on while we were there even though I wasn't that interested in the game since Duke had already won their game earlier in the day, knocking the Hokies out of a chance at going to the ACC championship game.  I was more worried about the score of the Auburn/Alabama game.  We got home just in time to watch the AMAZING last play Auburn made to WIN the game!!
