Family and the Holidays

I hope your Turkey day was as wonderful as ours was. Both our son and daughter came to spend the day. The daughter brought her game system so her and I sat next to each other and played Spyro the dragon, which we both love. We laughed and talked for hours. The guys were outside smoking turkeys, chickens and fish. They would pop in once in a while to see the game but mostly spent the time talking and laughing together.

The daughter and I started dinner, actually it was going to be lunch because she had to go to work later in the day. We made mashed potatoes, the yellow ones that her Dad likes, 3 kinds of veggies, turkey with gravy and all the fixins. Stuffing of course but no sweet potatoes! None of us like them.

We all got our plates fixed, held hands and thanked the Lord for our good fortune then ate up a storm. Hopefully not the last time we all get together for a while but I don’t know for sure. The son ships out on the 16th of Jan. We are planning a Christmas together. It will be a day late because of all our schedules but that’s ok.

  1. What a wonderful day! We had family travel all the way from St. Louis, MO. It was a great day seeing everyone together. It was the largest gathering of my family in over ten years.

    We all spent the day catching up wishing we got to see more of each other. And of course we ate until we thought we’d pop! Unfortunately, being in Arkansas you know that there were sweet potatoes on the table. I agree with you though. Yuck!

    We hope that the rest of your holiday season is as wonderful. Our best wishes go out to your son. You must be so proud. It takes a person of such outstanding character to volunteer to serve our country especially in these times. We’ll keep him in our prayers. Happy caching!
