Friday Food Fight ~ Thanksgiving Day Feast!


It’s that time again, when we make each other drool at all the fabulous foods we’ve feasted on over the past week!

 Thanksgiving Day! 

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 Food Fight Friday!

To join our Friday Food Fight, post a picture of your favorite food, meal, snack
or drink.  Of course, we’d love to see you enjoying your tasty treat, but you
don’t have to be in the picture.  Then on Friday, post your drool inducing photo
and link up here.  That’s it.

Happy Thanksgiving 2010

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

 ~Meister Eckhart~

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.

~Robert Burns~


I Want A Baby Sister….

Meggers:  Maybe you could be my baby sister?  Peek-a-boo! MOMMY I want a baby sister!  I could call her Layla!

Emma:  Heh! You’re pretty funny, but I’m your cousin I can’t be your sister.  Go on do the eye cover thing again hee hee.


Mommy:  Mmmmmmm Meggers look what Mom moms cooked there’s Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, cheesy cauliflower, squash… Doesn’t it look YUMMY!


Meggers:  Yep you’re perfect!  Maybe I could put you in my Mommy’s belly and then you could be my baby sister.

Cousin Emma:  Huh?  What?  Hey you!  Yeah you with the camera are you hearing this?


Mommy:  (Still trying to change the subject)  Meggers look at the Black Forest Gateau Cake and the Banofy.  YUM!

Meggers:  Hmmm Let’s see if I can rope in daddy with a game of peek-a-boo.

Cousin Emma:  Oh boy he’s really falling for it.  SUCKA!  I know I’m cute but this is pathetic.


Cousin Emma:  Yep you’ve been reeled in hook, line and sinker.


Meggers:  Yep daddy’s convinced, now to work on Mommy!

Daddy:  Honey she is kind of cute, don’t you want one of these?

Cousin Emma:  Heh, I am cute.  You can’t have me, but it would be kind of cool to have someone younger I could pick on… I mean play with.  Come on I’ve got two older brothers throw me a bone here.


Meggers:  Happy Thanksgiving!  The Daddy makes the food.  We come to Mom moms for dinner.  I want a babby sister.  The End!


Daddy:  24, 36, hut, hut….

Meggers:  Dang it Daddy this is why I don’t have a baby sister.  Sigh!

Cousin Emma:  Yep you blew it dude. 


 Meggers:  Now I’ve gotta start all over.  I love you mommy!

Mommy:  I love you too!  I’ll think about it…..
