So Very Thankful...

and just plain full!

It has been a wonderful day!
The weather outside is so very cold!

But inside our home is warm and the table set for a feast!

Donald brined the turkey and cooked it until it was PERFECT!
We had stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry apple sauce, rolls, green beans and gravy.
Later, pecan pie for dessert.

This card was made by Ivan last year, but we put it out each Thanksgiving.

Because he told us to...

Being full on Thanksgiving is something we definitely take for granted.
Just the fact that we are able to sit around together in a warm home, eating this dinner until we can't eat anymore is a luxury that so many people don't have.

So as we ate, we discussed what we were each thankful for, and it always came back to our home and family...parents who love their children, children who love their parents, a mom and dad who love each other, warm food, warm clothes, warm home.
The absolute basics of a good life.

What are you thankful for?


  1. What a fabulous Thanksgiving and a fabulous beard! Wow! We are thankful for family, near and far. And this year we are especially thankful for the blessing that is entering our world soon. So very thankful.

  2. Ditto for me - table looked great and I love the beard, Donald. Sounds like a nice, peaceful, loving Thanksgiving.
