O Happy Day!

Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone, and it was fantastic. Although about half my family couldn't make it, we really had a great day! For the first time ever, I was in charge of pretty much the entire meal. My Mom made the dressing because, let's face it, nobody makes dressing like Momma! My part of the meal included sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, ham, cream cheese corn, and pumpkin pie cake! Almost every recipe called for at least one stick of butter...some called for more! My Dad's wisdom..."I diet all year for this meal!" So, we downed a years worth of fat grams but, man was it good!

As for the snow, you have never seen Leigh more excited! (She's from the Beaumont area where we rarely to never see snow!) That was a perfect touch added to an already lovely day.

Mom and Dad and less than half of their grandkids!!

Leigh owes me twenty bucks!

This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for so many, many things. My family full of healthy, happy children. Wes who generously gives of himself and often puts my needs above his own...he's an awesome dad and loving husband. I'm thankful that my brother Joe began his relationship with Christ just a few months ago. I'm thankful for parents who taught me the importance of family. And, I have to say...I'm so, so grateful that God moved James and Leigh to Fort Worth...having family so close and getting to be a part of Glory's life is just so overwhelmingly awesome. I feel undeservingly blessed. Because of God's grace and goodness, my life is full of joy!
