Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!
We had a great Thanksgiving celebration with my family. In the morning we watched the Thanksgiving Day parade and enjoyed spending time together. Cooper loved the big balloons and kept saying "buy that". He is so funny. We went to Aunt Von's house for lunch and Uncle Jeff prepared a huge spread of delicious foods. Everything was so yummy. Both boys loved the homemade chicken and noodles and ate tons. It was so nice to have all of our family there and be able to spend time together. After lunch we went to Mimi's house for dessert and games. We had so many dessert choices that everyone could have had their own pie. Everything tasted great and it was so hard to not sample them all. The day was cold and rainy so our outdoor games were cancelled, but we still played a paper tearing game and Thanksgiving Jingo. There were great prizes to be won and Baylor came away with several more nutcrackers. It really is getting out of control. He was so worried someone else might want to pick them as a prize. Cooper was the only other person interested in the nutcrackers. Once again on Thanksgiving I am so thankful for so many things in my life. My family is so precious to me and I feel so blessed to have them all in my life.

Psalm 100 - A Psalm of Thanksgiving

Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all your lands. Serve the Lord with Gladness; come before his presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; it is He who made us not we ourselves; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with Thanksgiving, and into His Courts with Praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.
