Thanksgiving Blessings

We had a good day of weather for Thanksgiving day and were able to travel
to Sall's sister's house two and a half miles away.  There was a cold northwest wind
blowing, but at least the roads were clear and NO SNOW.  We spotted this huge
flock of geese right off of Interstate 90.  What an awesome spectacle.  The geese are
moving south now, and I don't blame them.

Sara's house was warm and cozy and all decked out for the holidays.

We stepped in the door and the smell of the turkey in the oven was delightful!!
The table was set with her beautiful Johnson Brothers dishes.

We feasted on the traditional Thanksgiving entrées...
And topped it all off with both pumpkin and pecan pie!!

Her Thanksgiving meal was absolutely delicious,
we all ate until we were miserable.
Don't you just love our American traditions!

After dinner Uncle Sall impressed the twins with his magic tricks...
after he pulled about 5 bucks in coins out of their ears, they decided 
to see if there was any money in his ears???
He did his usual fine job of getting the kids all wound up
just before it was time for us to leave. 
 Grandma and Mom were grateful, I'm sure!

Thanks to Sara and daughter Leah for a great Thanksgiving!

Family - Fun - Laughter - Love
Life is good.

Hi, looks and sounds like it was a great day. Lovely photographs.Pleased to hear you were able to get there safely with no snow.
Some parts of the UK have had snow but luckily we haven't yet. Have a good weekend, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

I think you probably had a wonderful day with the family, by the sounds...I am laughing about getting the kids wound up and then leaving, my brother used to do that, too!

I'm glad you had a happy Thanksgiving and some lovely memories to cherish. We have no snow here yet either, which is ok by me, it will come soon enough. I had to have the guys look at your photo of the geese, unbelievable! Talk about a scene out of the 'Birds' movie! I thought maybe someone had blown up a huge pile of white paper, there are SO many of them. Hope you have a nice weekend!
