harvest time

Welcome to Thanksgiving dinner @ MiMi'z Houz... a tradition that happens every 4th Thursday in November.

A home where we extend a warm welcome with a big smile, a kiss on the cheek, a big hug and/or a hand shake.  

We compliment each other.  We say thank you and we are thankful. We are f-a-m-i-l-y.

Getting so excited for the family feast. Can't wait to serve a yummy dinner.  Take a peek at my table scape for this special day.

Dinner served buffet style 

to accommodate 20 plus family members and friends

son, daughters, grands, siblings
nieces, nephews, in laws

family friends

The aroma from the kitchen brings us all 
together for a traditional feast

Immediately following dinner, we play games.

My favorite is "auction" and "blind bidding".

Family members donate a gift for the auction
as we sponsor a child for Christmas. 

Love their expressions.
We watch the game

We do late nite Christmas shopping

We do table side chat, sharing childhood memories
 and thankful moments.

We do all this in one day!

A family with a circle of love

Happy Thanksgiving
Susan @ MiMi'z Houz
