Our family just keeps getting bigger and bigger. We just love the growth and our family. The only problem is that it makes it hard to get together for holidays and other events. We either need to buy a mansion or figure out an alternative. So this year we decided to have dinners at different homes and then get together for desert. We started out the morning with a family basketball game and a service project. We put the invitation out to everyone and if they can come they come. If they can’t that’s ok too.
For the service project we put kits together that you keep in your car to hand out to homeless people when you see them. The kits have socks, gloves, granola bars, juice, hand warmers, goldfish and hygiene kits. It was fun for the kids to fill the kits.
Later everyone went to their designated homes for dinners. Anyone who could show up for desert later did and some just stayed at the homes they ate dinner at. Whatever the case may be, the most important thing is that everyone feels welcome and loved. Everyone is invited and welcomed and those that can’t make it or have other plans are missed but still loved.
We hope you all had the best Thanksgiving filled with love and fun.
Have the best day ever
Suzanne and Heidi
