Thursday, November 22 – We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at our daughter's place.

Carrie, Marsha and Carrie's roommates, Nick (in the back), Bo (making his famous mashed potatoes.)

It was a small gathering of 26 young people. Carrie gets this “Big Party” spirit naturally. Marsha has always loved big parties!

Not everyone was there when we took our annual group photo.

We had a wonderful time visiting with all her friends. Many are from distant cities and were unable to make the trip home to spend Thanksgiving with family, so this is a wonderful gesture on Carrie's part to provide a place to enjoy the day with friends.


Of course, we had turkey....two as a matter of fact.... and all the trimmings. Everyone brought along a dish to add to the buffet. We all enjoyed a fabulous dinner.

Carrie tried a new recipe on one of the turkeys…wrapping it with bacon….YUMMY!

Look who got to do the honors of carving the turkeys this year.

There was football (Houston beat Detroit in overtime), Cornhole (a bean-bag toss game for those unfamiliar to the game), and lots of sharing and conversation.

What form.

This bag is for you.


As evening approached and things began getting “loud,” it was time for us “old folks” to head home and let the young people enjoy the end of the day.

Hope y'all had as wonderful, fun, blessed Thanksgiving as we did.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
