A Stewart Thanksgiving

This year we had the privilege of hosting Weston's family at our home for Thanksgiving. It was a nice change to not be traveling with all of the kids to Oregon when the weather is cold and nasty. Inevitably every year our flights get delayed and it turns into quite the hassle! Needless to say the family was happy to enjoy some warmth for the holiday and they all went home to a TON of snow in both Oregon and Idaho! Our house was so full and it was wonderful to share it with so many loved ones! My mother in law is an amazing cook so all I had to do was "assist" her in the kitchen. I was just a supporting player! ;) The meal turned out wonderful and it was great to see everyone together. We were missing 2 out of 7 brothers though...Garrett and Brett and family we missed you!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Bring on Christmas!!!

Our 26 lb. turkey!

Todd is such a manly man!

My sis in law Jodie bought me this beautiful bouquet!

Thank goodness Weston was able to borrow tables and chairs from his office to accomodate everyone.

You girls sure look good! My family is a little more casual:) I think I remembered to put on makeup that day! Sounds like you had a great time with everyone. So fun to be together. Men doing the dishes. I like that!

Wowzers, that is a houseful of people! Good job taking a pic of the table, I counted 14 settings... is that right!?!? And then a teenager table, not to mention all the little kiddos. That is so awesome! Everything looked beautiful and incrediable and I am sure everyone had so much fun!

I think your Stewart boys need to teach our Stewart boys a thing or two about doing the dishes! I am impressed! Ours were too busy watching footbal and asking for pie to do the dishes. :)This was so fun to see! It looks like you were an amazing hostess! By the way, that is so cool that you know Nancee! Small world!

That is one full house. You looked beautiful, not frazzled at all. I would be a wreak trying to keep on top of everything! Glad they all made their way in your direction this year.
