Grateful for Family

Although I was missing my dad today, my family still came together to celebrate Thanksgiving and we managed to remember him and enjoy each other’s presence and an abundance of food. My brother said a prayer before we sat down to eat, acknowledging our sadness yet being blessed to have our immediate family here together.

Dave and I prepared most of today’s feast, then Stephen and Kacee brought a home cooked spiral turkey and mashed potatoes. It was all delicious, turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce and black olives, sweet potato pie and fruit salad. I passed on the dinner roll and I’m still stuffed, and we ate around 3:30!

Afterwards, we watched the nail-biter of a game with the Cowboys, who lost in OT. Boo!

I hope you all enjoyed family time and had a blessed Thanksgiving!
