Thankful

Today is the day we eat too much and think about all we are thankful for in our lives. We should be thankful daily. I am more blessed than I can put on paper or on the internet. Family, home, dogs, job, clothes, food, heat, A/C, car, good health....that is just the top of the list.

The day started great with a call from Iraq. Scott sounded good. We talked Carolina basketball and such. I'm very thankful that God has protected him while in Iraq!!!

Then we went to my aunt's house to eat. Good food, great family. And yes Angie we had deep fried turkey!!! Okay how about some pictures.


I told my uncle (who was cooking the turkey) that my sister-in-law couldn't believe we eat deep fried turkey. He said "well it says 0 grams of trans fat"....cracked me up so I took a picture.

Here is the bird soaking up the trans-fat oil!


YUMMY!
Best chicken salad EVER and the turnips ain't bad either.

Now this is why I come....my Aunt Linda's potato salad. I took the rest of it home with me...guess what I'm having for lunch tomorrow?


Here's my plate....

Here's my pregnant cousin Crystal....pregnant woman with fork...get OUT of her way!!!
Okay this is for Scott....we had my aunt's neighbor take the picture....as you can see she didn't quite get all of the sign...it says" WE MISS AND LOVE YOU SCOTT".
Take two...we added more family that had just walked in....
This is for my friend Jen. Her son is currently in Germany. This is his first Thanksgiving away from home. The sign almost got cut off in this picture too....Thank You Blake for what you are doing for our country! Praying you stay safe!!! HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!

Happy Thanksgiving my dear friend.
Your meal looks GREAT. I like the look of that Turkey.
My sister who lives in CA had to work over the holiday...but someone has to work in the hospital!
Is Scott your brother?
I praise the Lord along with you that He has kept His hand upon him. My Brother In Law is currently in Afghanistan. He has 4 kids, 2 of whom are autistic.
God bless you and yours.

Oh my gosh Wendy!!! You are sooooo awesome!! I can't wait to show this to Blake! Thank you so much. You've no idea what that meant to me- tears. I'm without a pc right now or I would link it. I'm having to do everything on my BlackBerry! Frustrating! Big bugs and thank you again!
