Give Thanks

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! God is so good and we have so much to be Thankful for!

We are at home with all of our children except for Tim. He and Naomi went to Wisconsin to visit with her sister and family.

I cook a turkey, (not really my favorite thing to do) along with dressing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, and we have pickles and olives. We also have various desserts which usually includes pies (thanks to Sara Lee).This year our bird weighs 21 pounds. He is currently cooking and I pray he tastes really good!

We usually just spend a quiet laid back day at home. We usually have our Thanksgiving Meal in the evening. Growing up we usually ate about 2:00, but I do not like the stress of having to get up early and getting everything together by then. I like to be able to enjoy my family instead of being Stressed Out, so it works out better to eat later.

We spend the day just having a lot of fun! We play lots of board games,card games and Wii. Tonight we will have to get out the Wii Fit! I haven't been on there for a while so my trainer is going to let me have it! Why do I put up with this electronic person who tells me how fat I am?

I want to say Hi to all my Family in Virginia. I miss you all and wish we were there to share Thanksgiving with you! G-Ma(my mom), Thanks for all you do and for what a Blessing you are to all! Corrie(my niece), you are the absolute best! How could we continue on with family traditions without you? Hi to all my brothers and sisters and their spouses and all my nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephew! Yep, I have a whole lot of relatives back in Virginia!

I hope you and your families have a Blessed Day!

I love this song and thought it is appropriate for today!

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever.

1 Chronicles 16:34

Sounds like a wonderful thanksgiving. Ours was filled with lots of laughter and wonderful friends and a 25lb turkey which was wonderful.
