First it Came, Then it Went

Started off at church this morning to thank God for everything He has given us this year.  We have truly been blessed.

This is my first Thanksgiving without my little sister, but I am grateful for the fact that she, my mom, and my dad are all looking down on us today and laughing.

Here is the feast (yes, we ate at 12:30)...

My table is never going to match the beautiful tabletops I see on the net.  I am just trying to get everything there while it's hot.  I DID get the Spode and the good silver out, though. 
That's corn casserole and greenbean casserole, of course... mashed potatos and stuffing from a box, because we rarely eat it.  The meat is a great roast from Munson Premium Angus Beef that I put in before going to church, and cooked low and slow.  We didn't really need a knife to cut it.  You notice the gravy boat is empty... the au jus was so good, we didn't need gravy (or ketchup). 
Here is someone else I'm grateful for:
He's bad.  That's all I'm going to say about that.
Look... I got my picture taken, too. 
Grateful for these guys who got to go off their diets today to have some extra food.
Grateful for all the creatures we have in our care.  We like our turkeys on the hoof around here.
God has been good to us for another year.  Please join us in prayer for those who have had and are still having a struggle this year.
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
