Happy Thanksgiving and Every Day After!

As I reflect on the beginning of this holiday season the smell of roasted turkeywafts up the stairs and into my office.  The tantalizing smell reminds me of years gone by and memories flood through my mind and heart.

I'm on crutches (for the entire holiday season) so everyone else is doing the work for me. I am truly thankful for all my family and friends who are taking over to make our Thanksgiving dinner for twenty-six the same as always....yummy

I'm sitting here wondering what kind of stories I'll have to tell at the end of the day?  Will here be more "thankful" stories or humorous ones?  You just never know.  The important thing is we're all together with our differences of opinions, our personalities, and our outrageous laughter.

What did you do for Thanksgiving?  Do you have a story to tell?  Please share!

I'm here with all my siblings and we've managed to (1) yell at each other (2) laugh with each other, and (3) play games with each other. We're still happening, and the men moved into the living room for football.

We had a good time too. Moms had more food than I did... and I do not think that is the way to treat a pug!
I am glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving- surrounded by love.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to
her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I have been surfing online greater than 3 hours as of late, but I never discovered
any interesting article like yours. It's beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you did, the net will likely be much more useful than ever before.
