Our family has always gathered together on Holidays. I am very thankful for the traditions my family has established. I have a big family...lots of cousins. We all live pretty close so there is always about 40 to 50 of us that gather at all holidays. I love it! My grandparents passed away recently and that has changed a few things, they always kept us together. We are the type of family, that if you don't have a place to go...you are always welcomed at the Stout's house. We have tons of food! Remember...we are a family who likes to eat...not shy on the eating part at all! Here are a few pics of our day, we have it at my moms...we set it up in the garage and kitchen so we have plenty of room!
This is the kids table...yep...still sitting at the kids table...I'm ok with that!
Here is the adults..can't you tell..the one on the right is my brother in law Greg...with his mouth full of food...so mature!
This is my mom and her famous Stuffing...it is fabulous!! I lOvE it people!! I need to get her recipe figured out...but she is a little bit of this and a little bit of that kinda gal...so it's hard!
This is my cousin Lori that I have asked you to pray for...and her daughter Lacy
Matt and I...:)
My niece Danielle and my daughter Brooke...silly girls!!
My niece Mckenzie and my cousins wife Amber...
There are lots more pics, but I think I will just spare you of all of them! LOL! Anyway...I am so thankful for my family. We are not a perfect family...Heck no! But when it comes down to it you can always depend on your family to love you and be there for you. I have an amazing husband who loves me...supports me...listens to me...and loves me. He is my best friend and there is no one I would rather spend my time with than Matt and our kids! But the best thing about him..besides being so cute...:) he loves the Lord with all his heart and seeks Him daily. Counting my blessings girls!!! Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross so that I could receive eternal life! Most Thankful for that!
