Thank- full

How funny is it that we celebrate Thanksgiving with a big "feast" and so we are giving thanks and we are thank-full... I think I need to stop over thinking these things... Since Sam started school he has been referring to Thanksgiving dinner as a feast. That seems much more festive, I think we will go with that. And by the way we were thank-full, and we were festive, it was a great day.

It has been several years since I hosted Thanksgiving, I am usually buried beneath an avalanche of Christmas decorations, getting ready for the next weekend's open house. And it seems wrong somehow to celebrate Thanksgiving with Christmas decorations everywhere. It was a great change of pace and now that I know I can do it, I will be happy to let my sister Toni have it back...

Here are the turkeys that showed up..

A few more turkeys..

A couple of cute chicks!!

Table decorations

More table decorations,

and still more table decorations...

We are a very quiet reserved group...Ever so sweetly explaining the game to the little ones...

And then things get a little rowdy!!!

She doesn't like those rules!!

This big boy doesn't want his picture taken I guess...

I hope you had a great group of turkeys to be thankful for.
