A Simple Thanksgiving!

My Thanksgiving blessings are standing beside me: Mark, Jer and Jon—the men in my life. We had a great day at the Eden Resort (I didn't have to cook, clean or defrost the turkey!). In fact, it was so wonderful I may never cook again!

We actually talked for two hours (a milestone). There was absolutely nothing vying for our attention, except the food, which we all shared.

I came home to a clean house that smelled like Evergreens (thanks to Bath and Body Scentports), and then we all melted into bed and took a nap.

Pure bliss.

This is going into my chapter on "simplicity." We make Thanksgiving too difficult (at least I did), and now I know how to do it much more simply.

I hope you all had a restful, blessed Thanksgiving day. If you tried something new this year (even a different way you cooked the turkey, I’d love to hear about it).

My Thanksgiving went as well as could be expected, to me this is the best way to go, no cost to me execpt $5.00 for gas to travel there and back, and three bottles of soda for a punch. I offered to bring a dish of whatever, but was told no. I was invited to two friends, so more than enough to eat, they live within 10 minutes of each other, and 60 miles from our home.

I am glad you had a great time, you have a beautiful family, and the guys have a beautiful and loving wife and mother!

May God's Angels Surround You & Yours,

Hey Terry,

It sounds like you had the best of both worlds! It's so nice to be invited to Thanksgiving dinner by friends!

We look forward to being with our family in California in the years to come!

Blessings to you!

I don't have a simple story, mine never are.

Anyhow, the excitement at our family gathering including, running, screaming,wrestling, & crying children ages 1-8, I won't include Jared in this list except for the wrestling. Oh we even had a glass pan explode into a million shards in the kitchen. It looks like the cooktop was still hot, even though it was off and someone put the glass dish on top!

Anhyhow, it sounds like a nice simple meal that you all had and so nice that you could chat together for such an extended time.

I have to say, it's the first time I actually got to sit down and eat...I'm always running around on Thanksgiving serving everyone else (only female in the family!).

Glass shards...ewww! That happened to us one year and I think I dug glass out of the linoleum for years.
