Thanksgiving 2014

There used to be many more of us.  When the kiddos were little there were about 16 gathering for family events.  Now the kids are grown and gone.  It's sad, but that's what kids do.  They grow up and often they leave.  That's the point for parents--grow them up and send them out.

It doesn't stop those of us who are left behind from feeling nostalgic about "the good old days".  But the 7 of us still had a good time yesterday.

Thanks go to Norman Rockwell for the inspiration for this image.

This is TERRIFIC!!!! Norman Rockwell…move over…here comes lindaelizabeth! :-) I love, LOVE, LOVE this one!!!! Did you tell people where to look? I really LOVE how some of the subjects are looking at the camera and some are not. Good for you for taking the time to shoot this while the food was sitting there and ready to eat. It's an awesome image and I hope you print and frame it!!!

P.S. Sorry I didn't find your posting until Sunday morning!
