Thanksgiving Blessings

It was our turn to host Thanksgiving for my side of the family. We were missing a couple of people but we still had a nice dinner and enjoyed time together. In the last several years I have not been all that into decorating like I used to but because my Wonderful Daughter and my Husband were taking care of the food I spent a little time putting the table together. I think it came out nice considering I threw it together with stuff I had around the house in about 15 minutes.
My daughter made the yeast rolls, and a pumpkin pie and helped her dad with the turkey. My sister's family brought the vegitables and stuffing. That is why the table is a bit empty for this shot. After they arrived things got crazy and I forgot to take more photos.
After my family left for home we went to my husbands family to visit and take part in their 2nd round of Thanksgiving dinner. We skyped my daughter in Chicago, played games and checked out the ad's for tomorrows shopping. (I will not be participating in the madness but my young nieces are getting psyched up for the big day.) So all in all a very good day spent with family.
I am Thankful for...
a daughter who loves to cook!
technology that lets us talk to our loved ones far away.
that my daughter in Chicago had a friend invite her to their family dinner so she wouldn't be alone.
for the guy in her apartment building who baked her a pumpkin pie since she didn't get a piece of the one she helped make while here last week.
that I do not have any desire to join the madness at 4 A.M. to get deals that really are not deals anymore.
And on a really serious note, I am thankful that my husband is still with us, that I have a loving close family I am so proud of and that God has truly Bless our home!
Hope you all had a great day and enjoy the weekend.


  1. Your centerpiece is really pretty! Can't believe you just had that stuff laying around....oh, yes I can. I'm actually not surprised you'd have all kinds of neat stuff within arm's reach!

  2. Have you been spying on me? You don't EVER want to go in my basement.
