Turkey Day

We all have so many things to be thankful for. Food, love and family. Football, firewood, crossword puzzles, and Dayquil. Sam, super heroes, pancakes, and gummy butterflies. Grandparents, sleeping in, coffee and pie. We are thankful for a fun new game that JP was patient enough to teach us and for freezers full of elk and venison that we processed together.
We are thankful that we got to spend time with Dylan. The thoughtful college student came bearing gifts of sparkling cider and snacks.
Ben was thankful he had some good play time with his brother and cousins, Collin and Rylee.  He even got to go "hiking in the woods" to help pick Oyster Mushrooms.
Maggie was thankful for lots of attention. She oinked her appreciation every time her belly was rubbed (Yes, this funny dog actually oinks). She rolled around on the floor with Dylan and jumped right up on the couch for some lovin' from Melissa and JP.
I am thankful for my wonderful Hubby, who suffered for rainy days on end, hunting. We are all thankful for Connie, who persevered with a cold virus to provide for us all and make us wonderful food and drink; including a most delicious turkey dinner.
Dylan was especially thankful for a much needed break from studying before returning to prepare for finals.


  1. It was a fantastic weekend and I am so very thankful for the wonderful family I have!

  2. The whole week was so much fun. Action packed. I love Euchre, don't you? Seriously, I do.
