The Leftovers are gone...

Last night we finished the very last of the beans, stuffing, gravy and mashed potatoes.  Thanksgiving is over, but I still have so much for which to be grateful!  Especially my family, dear friends and knowing Christ is with me.  Christmas season brings wonderful opportunities to share that with others and the children.

We went to Dollywood on the evening before Thanksgiving.  It was so fun to see the lights, ride the fun and to see a Christmas show!

Then we started cooking...

All of us in the kitchen.  Caleb says, "Upere" meaning "Up Here" when he wants on the counter.

Actually my first pumpkin pie - we've always been with others who made it!  I also did my fave - French Silk!

Mike 'carved' the turkey breast and stole some bites!

Jake doesn't eat olives, but fed them to Faith - they were half gone before we prayed!

Caleb was serious about his food.

We finished our simple, but yummy meal quickly.

This year my candy corn thankfulness were for family love and for Christ, who is with me through all.
