Happy Thanksgiving!

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


We’re looking forward to family traditions today. . .

  • Thanksgiving at my sister & brother in-law’s cabin with my husband’s side of the family.
  • Also celebrating Christmas at the cabin! This year we kept the gift exchange simple:  Each person bought a $10 gift.  We will put the gifts in the middle, draw numbers and each person can choose a wrapped gift or a gift someone else has already opened.  Sounds fun. . . I’ll let you know how it goes.
  • Grandma’s sweet potatoes
  • Aunt Julie’s stuffing
  • pumpkin pie. . .yummmm!
  • And apple pie!!
  • Pecan pie too!!
  • Grandma Z’s infamous 7 layer salad
  • a movie or two
  • making a craft ornament for the Christmas tree

Thanksgiving blessings to all of you,

Heather a
