HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

What a wonderful day! Bethany, SNOW, turkey, sweet potatoes, Grandy's rolls, SNOW, three different kinds of pie, and COLD weather and oh, yeah--did I mention SNOW? It's been snowing almost all day!

In fact, AT THIS VERY MOMENT the kids are out in the front yard making a respectable snowman who could hold his head high in any snowman convention. (Usually, our Abilene snowmen are 45% dirt and grass.)

Not much sun in the "sun room" for Hannah's after-turkey nap...

Right now, Bethany and I are in here enjoying the toasty fire Houston made and stealing a minute at the computer to blog all the thanks and happiness. Karen is outside taking pictures of Sir Snowman and the kids. She'll probably need the computer in a few minutes to do her FIRST blog since we moved in together.

Time to go call Mom and Dad and Russell and tell them how thankful I am for each of them...

And here we were, in Virginia, feeling sorry for our Kinders on the High Plains...sounds like you have and are making---a home.

Delightful.

Sounds like you had a wonderful day! *S*N*O*W* is an awesome gift for a day of thankfulness! :) I can't wait to see pictures a Texan Snowman! (Somehow that phrase sounds all wrong!):) Glad you all had a special time together...

Blessings, Melanie

Glad to see the pics of your Thanksgiving fun. We missed you up here, but glad you had snow to make your Thanksgiving special. Maybe that means we'll get it in a few days?! :)

Happy Thanksgiving. I'll be writing the same blog comment to all my blogger friends, it seems:

I'm semi jealous of the all the Thanksgiving foods and family gettogethers. Thanksgiving Spaghetti tradition won't last long .... at least I didn't have Tofurkey again ....

We are SO blessed to have beautiful daughters who love the Lord and love their family! We also count all our grandchildren among our blessings, and we wish we could all be together at these times.

Thanks for the pictures, but I have to question the whipped cream shot!

Hugs all around,
Mom

LOVE the Redi-whip picture! I hadn't seen snow since I was 12-- and I was over it after 10 minutes of being outside. (At least it wasn't as windy as normal.) :) The fireplace rocks!

Sorry I didn't get to see you while I was there--something about protective parents not wanting me to drive in snow...oh well.
