A Kiwi Thanksgiving

And you are thinking... what exactly is a 'Kiwi Thanksgiving?'

Well, it's summer here - which means hot. And so instead of the tradition Thanksgiving meal we had a church BBQ! About 27 of us there. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time of fellowship and thanking the Lord for all he has done for us! :)

 Dad cooking the hamburgers and sausages and fellowshipping with Pastor G. 

The kids love Brother Spackmens water wheel.

Especially David

The important part of the day, right? :P
No! Giving thanks to God is... by far! :)

But the food was great! :)

Mom, Mrs. Quilty, and Mrs. G fellowshipping.

I absolutely love this photo.
Malachi just loves Brother Quilty and Brother Quily is always happy to listen to him talk.

More people arriving...

Two cute little girls!

Emmaline and Mrs. G

Enjoying dinner and fellowship together.

Some of the men fellowshipping.

Another cute little girly! :)

Mom serving the pies and Ezra serving icecream!

And then we spent a while praising our Saviour in song, reading His Word, and sharing what we are thankful for. It was a great time together around the Lord, who has blessed us so richly with so much more to be thankful for then we could ever thank him for.

Looks like a lot of fun. The ice cream sounds the best. We are ALWAYS thankful for ice cream. :-) Sure am glad God invented it.
