Happy Thanksgiving

From our family

to yours

I'm thankful for God's calling in our life

I'm thankful for children that work cheerfully beside us

I'm thankful that the first two to fly the nest are soaring

I'm thankful for all our children


I'm thankful for their good health

(and ours)

I'm thankful for this blog because it helps keep me sane

We will be having our Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday because I had to travel two days to get the ingredients. Out of 42 hours 30 were spent on a bus. I just got back this morning. But, I prevailed! We have a turkey and cream for whipping!

Here's our menu:

Turkey and stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy
Gem squash
Peas, carrots, green beans and corn
Angel Biscuits

Apple pie
Pumpkin pie
Cheesecake
Whipped cream and/or custard

Since everything from the cream cheese to the stuffing to the crusts has to be made from scratch you can see why we are postponing.

Have a great turkey day all!

And to my readers not gorging on this great food today--sorry.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving! We had ours here in Canada way back in October, so we won't be eating turkey today...or Saturday...but your meal sounds delicious, and your efforts to make it so are impressive. (30 hours on a bus? Can't even imagine.) Blessings to you and yours!

  6. Isn't perspective amazing? People think it's crazy that it's 15 minutes to the nearest grocery store for me. Forget 30 hours!

    You are a trooper. Hope your feast was yummy!!
