What I'm Most Thankful For
Here is my family! From left to right: Jennifer, Justin (holding 4 month old Jocelyne), Bonnie (holding 4 yr. old J.J.) and William. The two grandkids belong to Jennifer and Justin. TF (my husband) took the picture last night, after all of our Thanksgiving guests had left for the day. They were trying to decide what they wanted to do and I said, “It’s time for our yearly picture”. They all plopped down on the love seat while TF retrieved the camera. We took three pictures of the group. It’s not easy getting everyone to look forward and smile at the same time. I noticed after TF had downloaded them that they were all wearing blue jeans, even the baby. Along with my husband, this is the thing I am most grateful for.
Thanksgiving came along way too fast. I had been busy cleaning the house and shopping for the day. I found a 22lb. turkey at Kroger’s and after last years fiasco, I knew this one would be big enough for our crowd. You say, “What happened last year?” Well, a friend of my wanted to do the turkey and dressing and I said ALLRight. Two hours before the dinner was to be served, he called up and said, “How many people are coming, this is only a 12 lb. turkey.” I almost fainted, knowing that we would have about 20 people there for dinner. I immediately ran to the freezer and found a half ham. It went into the microwave immediately for a quick thaw. I got it wrapped in foil and put it into the oven. Just so you will know, we didn’t have one bite left of the turkey or the ham. That was just too nerve wracking. This year we had plenty.. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving!
TF and I finally left the house today around 4:00pm. I was still trying to recover from yesterday and just relax. I looked over the “black Friday” ads and saw a couple of things that I would like to go shop for. We headed to Fry’s electronics and found everything on the list, how lucky is that? Now, I’m home again and doing my blogging.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
