Thanksgiving Mysteries

We had a really nice Thanksgiving holiday.  My brother and his family came to stay with us Wednesday and Thursday, and my parents joined us on Thursday as well.  We had a fun visit, with lots of time to play, relax, and catch up.  We kept the meal simple, but good and filling as always!  Ham in my over-sized crock-pot, Mom’s twice-baked potatoes and rolls, Salad and relish tray, Homemade applesauce, Mom’s homemade cranberry sauce . . . topped off with pumpkin pie, cookies, and brownies!  Mmmmm!

We certainly had a lot to be thankful for this year.

However, with 7 children in our house, age 8 and under, there were some “Unsolved Mysteries” over the holiday.  Anyone want to try to help me solve these??

Mystery #1:

Who made this mess?!



Mystery #2:

We suspected there were monkeys here . . . is this proof?



Mystery #3:

How does Aaron quietly entertain 6 kids?



Mystery #4:

What’s in here?



Mystery #5:

Why do my nieces always remind me so much of their aunts (of corresponding birth-order)?



Mystery # 6:

How does a baby go from this . . .




. . .to this . . .


. . . in just one short year?

Thank You, Lord, for Your Mysterious Ways!
