This year we had my brother Takuya's family over all the way from Las Vegas.  It was such a treat.  We were mostly too busy to remember to take pictures, but here are just  few we managed to take.     

The girls were so excited to be together that they woke up before seven and started helping me put breakfast on.  Asha made a turkey head with felt at achievement days, and we made a fruit turkey with it.  The pumpkin bread pudding made with baguette was a big hit.     

The dinette was the perfect place for games.  This pretty much went on the whole visit.  

Here is our Thanksgiving table.  All 13 of us fit around our table. 

Lots of Lego and blocks play happened by the cozy fireplace.   

And here we are, ready to feast. 

This year we followed Takuya and Sarah's tradition and said what we were thankful for around the table in the order of the alphabet.  That was fun and there were some creativity involved.  We are thankful for all of our family wherever they may be.

It looks like a wonderful time! What a great family. Your table looked lovely, and I'm salivating over Scott's smoked turkey! I didn't know you got a fireplace!? I would live in that corner all day. :)

I wanted to know how many kids T & S have, so I tried to count them in your last picture, but it was hard to tell who was a Campbell and who was an Ohki! Their oldest daughter looks so much like you, Marie (at least in that picture). I also think Quinny looks like our Scotty.

Wow! What a bunch of really cute kids! Too bad they live so far away. I love the girls' fruit turkey. How fun!
