Thanksgiving at a glance

The morning started with everyone’s favorite aunt/cousin making balloon animals and flowers.  I worked in a story about how the Pilgrims brought them over on the Mayflower because I didn’t research how to make a balloon turkey before the day’s festivities.  Since I can make a sword, we also substituted pirates for Indians.  No one seemed to mind.

I caught this moment shortly after all the family arrived.  Why yes, that is my Mama taking the ham out of the dish washer.  Apparently, this is how people in East Texas warm up their meat.  It’s Redneck Martha Stewart at its finest.

Hallsville’s burn ban was finally lifted yesterday.  The entire town had a smokey mist lingering in the air.  Daddy was certainly willing to participate.  He’s a pyromaniac.  In every sense of the word.

We had four pies, two cakes and several plates of cookies.  This is all that is left:

Have you ever really considered how good potatoes are?  And rolls?  And chocolate?  We should all take a moment to be thankful for sugar. This is me about an hour ago.  I’m either feeling really good with the after affects of my pain meds or feeling really tired after my first carb overload in months.  Fun times indeed.

I hope you all had a wonderful and festive Thanksgiving.  I’m so blessed to have each of you read my little website.  Thank you for all YOU do for me.  I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again…my cup runneth over.
