Thanksgiving 2010

I know Thanksgiving 2010 has come and gone, but being truly "THANKFUL" shouldn't just happen 1 day out of the year. Our family has much to be thankful for and our hope is that we live out each day with a heart of thanksgiving and gratitude.


This year we celebrated Thanksgiving day a little differently than in several years past. We normally celebrate Thanksgiving at our home with our children, and end the day with games and dessert.


This November was very busy for us and our store was blessed with lots of grooms and boarding dogs on Thanksgiving week.....making our days full! So, this year celebrated Thanksgiving at my mother and step fathers house, with cousins, aunts, uncles, and my sweet 90 year old grandmother Nonnie....making it a very nice Thanksgiving.


We still did our share of cooking and baking, a family 0f 12 can't go anywhere empty handed :-)


Homemade apple pie....YUM!!!!



It has seemed to me fit and proper that God should be solemnly,
reverently and gratefully acknowledged,
as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN
National Day of Thanksgiving Proclamation



“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name” (Psalms 100:4).


We hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving with your family and friends, making many memories and remembering all the many things your thankful for!





After our Thanksgiving day celebration we went for a little drive to see this house......

The rocking Christmas house, the lights flash in beat with the tune of the music. You can sit in your nice warm car/van turn your radio to 107.5 and listen to the house music and watch the light show. This house is right across the street from a church you can pull right in the parking lot and settle in for a free fun show...we do this several times during the Christmas season because it's less than 2 miles from our house :-)


SPEAKING of CHRISTMAS.......

Do you all remember our Christmas giveaways last year???
Well, guess what???
We will be hosting more giveaways this Christmas season, so keep your eyes open December 1st for the first round of giveaways!!!!

Our Thanksgiving was also unusual this year. We celebrated on Saturday because my sister-in-law was still in the hospital Thursday due to her c-section the day before. (I have pictures of my beautiful new niece on my blog). :)

That baby who is a niece of Amanda's is beautiful and so good-natured. We are all thankful she and mom are healthy. We were blessed to get to celebrate with all of them on Saturday, too.
I like the looks of your apple pie with the leaf pattern for vents.
Thanks for telling us the Christmas house is already functioning this early. We had fun stopping by there last year, too.
