Thanksgiving 2009

We had a wonderful time this year. All of our 9 children were in town with their families. Our Thanksgiving Day lunch was hosted by Krista at her mini-ranch in east Mesa. She had prepared her home, which is a remodeled barn, with festive decorations and great hospitality. We all pitched in and brought various tasty treats to share.
After dinner we did our annual talent show--photos will show many of those participating. My sister Sandy came from Seattle and she reconnected with many of her nieces and nephews she had not seen for awhile.
Friday evening we held our Hinze Family Dance at Laura's home. Even though she is 5 months pregnant, she and her family hosted a lively affair. We even had some young ones do some cute dancing. One of the highlights was Rachel and Matt singing. We all learned that they have fantastic voices. None of us had ever heard Rachel sing a solo. We can't wait for them to make us a CD.
We send our love for Happy Holidays to you and yours.
