A Thankful Heart

Photo Cred.
We're hosting Thanksgiving at our house for the second year in a row. Thanksgiving with my family looks like mass chaos in our 1,900 square foot home with 30+ people inside.
Picture this: Everyone is talking at the same time and trying to get through the line of food in a disorganized cafeteria-like fashion. There are tables and chairs set up wherever we can fit them and there are people scattered throughout the house. Everyone is eating on our finest china, aka paper plates, and drinking out of plastic cups. The table centerpieces end up getting moved to the floor to make space for more plates and there's always some sort of heated discussion taking place. Multiple interactive games take place at the same time (most of which require yelling) and you can hear some sort of ball game on the television. 
Does this sound like your picture perfect holiday? It does mine! We have so much fun that it out weighs any downside to giant family holidays. I'm forever thankful that we have so much family to celebrate with, even if it doesn't produce magazine-worthy photos!
