We travel to Tennessee every Thanksgiving to visit Nathan's parents and brother. We take this opportunity to exchange gifts and celebrate Christmas.
This year was extra special because not only were we able to make it, but all the Sweeney kids.
Originally this photo was on the steps, but Aaron (the one in the hat between Jane and Elliot) refused to stand up, so we came over to him.
|We participated in the American tradition of breaking the wishbone.|
Elliot pulled too soon, so grandpa got some of it on the top. he determined it was a tie.
|Jane told the history of the cornucopia|
Elliot -not pictured, but I think he is on video, gave a speech about how Native Americans made tents.
|We picked up the British tradition of the Christmas Cracker while we were in Hong Kong. |
I rounded up my Marks-n-Spencer clearance kid crackers from last year and found some at World Market for the adults.
Everyone seemed to think it was fun.
Benjamin loved his spider webs.
|Decorating for Christmas|
Many many blessings, and a lot to be thankful for.
