Thanksgiving 2007

Thanksgiving is the big holiday in the Markwort household. Every year, all the family comes in from all around the world (Now that Uncle Carmen is in Mexico and G, Monica and Baleen are in Hawaii.) The rest of the family comes in from San Diego, Santa Barbara and the central coast. It is wonderful to see everyone once a year, and this year Mark's family came too. It was great to have Grandma Lee, Doug, Kathy and Matthew there to celebrate with us.

This is Sarah, Jeromy's cousin's maternal grandmother. She is so special to us. Even though we aren't related, we feel like we are and cherish our visits with her. She was happy to meet Ellie.

I am usually busy in the kitchen with Beverlee every year. This year Sally joined us and we so enjoyed her company. She didn't know what she was getting herself into I am sure and we are not willing to let her go in years to come. You are stuck with us now, Sally!

A look at dessert time. There were about 25 people this year. Somehow everyone fits in the house and gets fed. It is amazing.
