Tables Full of Grimms and Friends

I took so many pictures over the weekend that this will be a Grimm/Savannah week here at Nanaland.

The Grimms are a big family...six children of which half were in attendance at Thanksgiving, Mina, Marvin and William.   Marvin and I rented a VRBO with William and Barbara so we could visit and have meals at the rental house. It was located on the north end of Tybee Island and we had three bedrooms, two baths and a nice porch. However, it was so chilly we did not sit on the porch while we were there.  We did chuckle over the fact that the owner of the Beach House wanted to be sure that we knew it was a BEACH house. The walls were all painted Beachy colors....Beach items covered every wall and surface.   There was a pretty pillow in our bedroom that reminded me of Amelia and Margaret, lovers of all things flamingo.

Meanwhile, back to the Thanksgiving Feast.

The Dining Room Table.

The Smith Brothers ended up with their own table. 

We are thankful that Mina has a home that is big enough to hold the clan and she was so gracious in allowing us to spend Thanksgiving there. We all chipped in with the dishes and the cleaning before and after so we just had a good time enjoying our family and renewing the ties that bind!

Looks like a wonderful crowd for Thanksgiving--Mina's home looks lovely! I like her gray walls very much... The most we had for Thanksgiving here one year was 29--just exhausted me! Now, it is more like 20-25, but only every other year. Glad you had such an enjoyable get-together, Arlene!
