Thanksgiving turned out really great this year!
Minus the big fat cold that decided to grace me with its presence!
Even though I was feeling a tad under the weather I still managed to ham it up a bit for the camera!
Me no feel so well!
Ooo a photo-op!
Time to pose a bit ’cause that’s how I roll!
Go on giz a kiss!
We even managed to get a cute family photo in front of the tree!
I can’t see the tree!
Yes… we are THAT tall! *Grin*
Now that’s much better!

The tables were set…
The family gathered for the feast!
There was lots of good food!
Turkey, gravy, stuffing, mash, sweet potato casserole, green beens and biscuits!
Walnut tort, pumpkin roll, pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream!
It was a fabulous get together and everyone left feeling much like a stuffed turkey!
I was absolutely exhausted after eating, mingling, playing with the kids and cleaning up.
However… I did manage a cup of tea and another bite of pumpkin pie before bed! *wink*

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
Here’s a great Thanksgiving Day poem that captures the meaning of turkey day for me and a few of my favorite turkey day quotes…
More Than A Day
As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we’re poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.
So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you’ve got;
Realize it’s a lot,
And you’ll make all your cares go away.
~By Karl Fuchs~
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy~
If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.
Forever on Thanksgiving Day
The heart will find the pathway home.
~Wilbur D. Nesbit~
Some hae meat and canna eat, –
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit.
Right before Thanksgiving Meggers teacher sent home a turkey that we had to color and make a disguise for, so that it wouldn’t end up as someones thanksgiving dinner. So while Meggers colored the turkey we discussed different disguises that we could make. Meggers finally settled on an elephant.
“An elephant Meg?”
So after thinking about it for a few minutes, I drew the shapes and had Megcut them out. We went along the edges with glue, Meg sprinkled glitter and it actually turned out really cute don’t cha think….
This morning we were kidding with Meggers and as always she was believing everything we said (she doesn’t quite get sarcasm yet). I can’t quite remeber what we were talking about but this part of the conversation was kind of funny or at least we thought so…
Mommy: Meg don’t be so gulable.
Meg: No mommy it’s gobble, gobble, gobble.
Hubby and I laughed and talked about the time Meggers made a similar funny while talking about daddy’s hair tuning white on a Meggers and Daddy Day outing.
