Day Three Hundred Thirty Two 2013

T   hanks for time to be together, turkey, talk, and tangy weather.
for harvest stored away, home, and hearth, and holiday.
for autumn's frosty art, and abundance in the heart.
for neighbors, and November, nice things, new things to remember.
for kitchen, kettles' croon, kith and kin expected soon.
for sizzles, sights, and sounds, and something special that about. That spells THANKS for joy in living and a jolly good Thanksgiving.
~Aileen Fisher, All in a Word

Daughter Kelly and son in law Kerry and grandson Knox hosted Thanksgiving today in their new/old home which is graced with high ceilings and large rooms. Kerry sets a lovely table, doesn’t he?
Kelly ~ our hostess with the mostess. Thanks to you and Kerry for making it all just right.
We are blessed with good cooks in this family. Our yummy menu included turkey and dressing, ham, sweet potato casserole, broccoli and cheese casserole, garlic grit casserole, fried corn, green beans, peas, mashed potatoes, gravy, deviled eggs, frozen cherry salad, cranberry sauce, rolls, sweet tea, and for dessert chocolate pie, pumpkin pie, and cupcakes.
Kerry lights the candles on the table for a little turkey day ambience.
Eleven family members gathered around the table this year. Front and center is granddaughter Shelby, to her left and around the table are grandson Knox, daughter Kelly, brother in law Terry, sister Ann, hubby Neil, son in law Kerry, son in law Jerry, daughter Holly, and grandson Elijah. We all enjoyed this good time fellowship and marvelous feast and a lot of laughter.
I guess this says it all. We are so rich with blessings. Too many to count. Thanks to God for all of them and especially today for loving family and full bellies. Happy Thanksgiving!
