Thanksgiving 2011

Ah, what a beautiful day.  The loves of my life were all together at my home, and we enjoyed a great meal together.  I was up at 5 AM to start cooking and prepping for the big meal, but I didn't mind, knowing how much my family would enjoy the fruits of my efforts.  Christmas music was playing all day, lending to the festive spirit of the day.

Turns out my daughter was sick, but my granddaughters and son-in-law were excited about coming, and looking forward to having turkey dinner, so they came anyways.  Faith mostly laid on the couch, bucket at the ready.  Dan and the girls enjoyed dinner with us.  Faith did get up a little later and tried some mashed potatoes, and was actually able to keep them down, so that was good.

We enjoyed a nice visit, and I took Keeley to see the new Muppet movie, which opened today.  We loved it, and it was so nice getting out with her for a couple of hours.  We laughed, and cried....well, I cried!  Yes, I cried at a Muppet movie, I know!  But it was so good, and I love, love, love the Muppets.  Hope you get to see it....and do let me know if it doesn't leave YOU with a lump in your throat! 

I'm so thankful today for my family, my health, our jobs, plentiful food and shelter, and this beautiful country we live in.  And I'm grateful for God's abundant love and grace.  May He richly bless you this Thanksgiving, and throughout the Christmas holiday.

In Him,
