Thanksgiving 2007


It was a great Thanksgiving. The whole family was there, and so were so many friends. The Svynyj were holding their annual rady (svynstvo) so they celebrated with us.   Here is a shot of almost everyone. Some of the Svynyj did not make it into the picture. We had 3 turkeys roasted and everyone ate very well.



Romko and Wolodymyr




Fierce Dylan

Lida and Wolodymyr

We had some...err...wine

Peter was happy (as always)

Bohdan and Lida came all the way from New Jersey

It was Esme's second Thanksgiving celebration at Baturyn

Nancy (8 months pregnant) and Lida

Blaze was in fine form, showing off to the camera

We got a chance to wish Romko a happy 50th birthday, a few weeks early. We actually were able to fit 51 candles onto the cake. I think that next time we will use multiples of 10!

Hania chipped in to help.
