So much to be thankful for...

This has been one of the most memorable Thanksgivings of our family's history. Our families came to the States from Austria in the 50's.  My parents moved to Michigan, while my aunt and her family moved to Ohio.  Her sons, Carl and Herbie, are my only first cousins and we have always been close.  Our families made many trips back and forth to spend time together.  But, over the years, as our offspring married the numbers have grown and it has been increasingly difficult to coordinate schedules and space to accomodate everyone.  Thanks to finding a vacation home large enough that was available for this holiday we had a chance to reconnect and bond in a very special way.  Hopefully, times like this will help the young people in our family maintain the ties that were started so many years ago.
