Thanksgiving 2009


Once again this year, like many years before this. we gathered with family and friends for a thanksgiving celebration at Baturyn. It was a good turnout this year. We had over 60 people with 3 big turkeys and all of the fixings. The weather behaved on that day, and although it was rather cool, i don't think anyone really minded. The food was wonderful, the drink was plentiful and the company was soul-warming. Another year gone, and the youngest generation is getting older.

So it goes.....
