Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

We aren't out shopping today . . . but we ARE delving into Christmas.  Greg is putting up outside lights, and I'm working on our card.  This week, my focus will be on finishing preparations for our co-op's Christmas party.  I guess it's about time to change colors on here from brown and green to red and green!

We celebrated Thanksgiving twice!  We had friends over for the traditional feast a couple weeks ago.  It was our first time to host a Thanksgiving meal in 15 years of marriage.  It went pretty well!  The only problem was that the turkey was cold by the time we sat down.  I have a few ideas to remedy that in the future.  Anyway, we had a great time with our company, and the meal was delicious.

Our leftovers were long gone by yesterday evening when we joined Greg's parents at a restaurant.  Note to self: do not eat a restaurant's Thanksgiving meal just after their buffet has ended.  You might get dried out leftovers!  The turkey and ham were perfect, but the stuffing was awful, the veggies undercooked, and I think they forgot to add seasoning to the potatoes.  And this was a place that usually serves up fantastic food.  At least the appetizers, bread, salad, and dessert were terrific!

Can you tell food is important to me?  Lol!  I haven't even mentioned anything I'm thankful for!  Well, I AM thankful, and not just for food!  I am thankful for all of our blessings!  I'm thankful for my family, friends, and home.  I'm thankful for the freedom and peace we enjoy living in this country.  I'm thankful for my computer, my camera, and all our modern conveniences.  Most of all, I am thankful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus!!   =)
