Thanksgiving at the Farmhouse

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Today was my year to host Thanksgiving. We decided to have it at our farmhouse in WV, since the kitchen is bigger and everyone just loves the atmosphere there. If I counted correctly we had 27 people. We had a feast, it was so much food we couldn't even find a place to set it. I have so much to be thankful for, one of the things I am most thankful for is family. I love my family and cherish the times we have together. I will share some of the photo's. And since my family can't all get together for Christmas, we give the smaller kids Christmas gifts that day.
So it is kinda like my family's Thanksgiving/Christmas celebration.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
