Beverly, at, How Sweet the Sound is hosting Pink Saturday.
Thank you Beverly for your dedication to hosting the pink fun.
I am sharing this post for Thanksgiving week.
Several years ago our family had a very special reunion for Thanksgiving
I have shared this before and it was such a special gathering I am sharing it again.
The photos will speak for themselves.
This post is all about our family reunion for thanksgiving 1997. It wasn't an ordinary reunion, I will let you see for yourself. We had 85 family members attending this very special Thanksgiving.
The local newspapers heard of our huge family gathering We were thrilled of course. We donned our pilgrim and Indian clothing and posed for the papers.
Can you see me standing next to my son John on the far right. I confess those clothes were not at all the most flattering to ones figure. (Newspaper article above)
Have you guessed yet? We all wore pilgrim clothing or Indian clothing. Our ancestor John Coulter was in the Louis and Clark Expedition and is in the encyclopedia as the first white man to discover Yellowstone National Park. My maiden name is Sylva Jeanne Coulter. That is another story. Now for the pilgrims and Indians attending this special Thanksgiving dinner.
Here we are my family all dressed for the big Thanksgiving dinner.

Well there were more but I shared my sisters and brother only. (except Aunt Shirley) We were so blessed to be together that special Thanksgiving.
Some nieces and a nephew are missing from these photos. They were probably somewhere thanking the Lord for getting away from the chaos. All these photos were taken by my dh and families were gathered all around waiting their turn. To say it was loud and crazy is an understatement. LOL. dinner would not be served until these photos were taken. Not a popular concept. After the photos were finished, 85 hungry pilgrims and Indians sat down in a huge dining room and shared their blessings and thankfulness for being together on this happiest of Thanksgiving celebrations. The food was prepared by everyone's loving hands. The tables were decorated with turkey pine cones made by all the children. We gathered together with happy hearts and thanking God we all had food at last!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my dear blogging friends. May God bless each of you on this coming Thanksgiving day.
Blessings and love...Jeanne
