Our Thanksgiving

Lots of family...the Lawrensons, Kirchners and Sanchezes...I think 17 of us all together. Everyone was in charge of making a bringing at least one dish. Tricia's mashed potatoes were the best, and my cucumber salad was a hit. Here are a few pics of the day together.

It's almost frightening how much Gwyneth resembles her daddy.

Tricia looks GREAT, by the way!

Happy Thanksgiving, and may 2009 bring you even more things to be thankful for than 2008. :) You ALL certainly deserve it!
BTW, in that last photo, your face and Gwyneth's look just about identical! *giggle*

I've been reading your blog for almost forever and just realized that precious Gwyneth has her Daddy's eyes. And my goodness, what a glorious Thanksgiving this is - so very much to be grateful for, and soon there will be a big 'ol birthday party at your house. January 8th is right around the corner.

Love to all.

Pam D said...

Good gosh, that little girl is adorable! And just sittin' in the middle of a nest of blessings...
May this season of love and joy be the brightest ever for ALL of you!

Nancy Peacock said...

There isn't any doubt whose gene-pool that little girl comes from!
You and your daughter seem to have an amazing connection (not just in looks)that is so heart warming to see! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!

Kimberly said...

okay, have you ever noticed how much your expressions, yours and G's I mean, are completely dead on.. you'll never be able to deny her in a crowd, and I know you can't even imagine ever wanting to deny her, but there will come a time when you think -- geesh I hope know 1 knows this kid is mine right at this moment -- and she's going to think the same in reverse - but you will both be in trouble when you make that face exactly the same!

we also spent our thanksgiving with 17 people! however, 11 of them were kids... we had pizza in a hotel, not very traditional, but fabulous all the same. we are blessed indeed!

Dawn said...

Happy day after Thanksgiving to you and your family! :-)
Thanksgiving came and went to quickly for me. I am sure Christmas will be just as fast, and then we'll be in 2009 before we know it....

I am so glad you all had a blessed holiday yesterday. Cherish the memories made. That's what I tell everyone because life is just too short.

Thanks for sharing your memories with us. :-)

God Bless You!

Scott said...

Great pics dude. That last one of you and Gwyneth is too funny. You both have the exact same expression. Hope Trisha is feeling stronger each day. Still praying.

Missy said...

Baby G has your lips! exactly...

twin power mommy said...

Man, it is so amazing how much Gwyneth looks like her daddy.

Very very sweet!

Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!...we had 21 with my family...were missing quite a few and then tonight with Hubby's side of the family!! Can't wait! Doing something very "un-Thanksgiving" as far as the food...Shrimp Creole!! It's a first!

Wendy Glosser said...

I could go for some of that cucumber salad! I miss my mom's...send some this way! The Lord has used your family in such a mighty way in my life to remind me to be grateful for the little things and not so little things. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Awww Mr. Sanchez! He taught me Spanish (well, attempted to) in High School! I love seeing familiar faces on your blog!

'Mrs. B' said...

And of course...Gwyneth is such a doll!
