Thanksgiving is a time for food, grateful hearts, spending time with loved ones and giving thanks to God for the immense blessings in our lives. Spending time with family during the holidays is a special time of the year that I personally cherish. I enjoy being reminded of what God has given me every year when Thanksgiving occurs. There is nothing quite like family time during the holidays. These photos represent what I believe encapsulates Thanksgiving with family.

This was the first Thanksgiving I have spent with a few members from my dad’s side of the family, which includes Debbie, Audrey and my uncle, Scott Turley, who is not pictured.
