A Wonderful Thanksgiving

Mom hosted Thanksgiving Dinner
this year. It was delightful!

Warren was the resident photographer
and took all of these photos...

Before the meal my Sister-in-law, Bev,
offered us Smoked Steelhead Trout,
Cream Cheese and Crackers.

Allan had caught the trout and they
had it smoked. Very decadent!

The kitchen was full as Allan
was busy cooking up venison with
fresh mushrooms,
Onions and Peppers.

Georgia carved the turkey and
Mom prepared the other dishes
and took care of many details.

The Sparkling Cider was poured.

It was a time of eating much
and rejoicing in the fact that
we have each other.

We have experienced and understand
the unpredictability that can often
occur. We hope to not take each
other for granted!

I wonder what was so interesting.

All in all, we had a wonderful day.
It ended with an adapted game of
Balderdash. With words taken
from the dictionary.
We all agreed that we should
get the game.
It would just be better
that way.

Yesterday was busier than we
expected as we found out our dear friend
and Associate Pastor is in the Hospital.
Of course, we wanted to visit him and
since our Senior Pastor is out of town
there was a lot of scrambling to find
replacements for Sunday's Service.

All is well.
God is Good.

We visited Pastor Jack who lifted
our spirits all while we were attempting
to do that for him. He is 86 and this
has been his first stay in a hospital.

What a glowing testimony this man is.
We just love him and pray for a full
recovery. He has a procedure coming
up on Monday that involves his heart.
Please keep him in your prayers.

Last evening Allan, Bev and Georgia
joined us for movies and some loud
Beatles Rock Band. It was crazy...
but it was fun. Chelsea has said she
will not play again if I am singing.

I am fine on the songs I know but tend
to be a bit distracting if I don't know
the song. I take that as the opportunity
to have a bit of fun....I just don't understand
why she wouldn't love that??? LOL

Have a wonderful weekend.
Enjoy what seems like a bonus day today.

Love Ya!

Glad you had a great Thanksgiving Day with family! We loved having Chelsea up for a few hours yesterday... the kids have missed her! Funny, you mentioned Balderdash.... we just played that last evening with friends as well.

How have you been feeling? I hope your neck pain is getting better.

Talk to you soon!

Some people play differently. Just smile and sing anyway.

I so hope the doctor's find out what is causing you so much pain dear Becky. Pain can be an awful thing to live with. God bless and know I'm thinking of you.

Kelly said...

I glad your Thanksgiving was nice. Ours was too.

We got your message about Pastor Jack and are praying. Sunday won't be the same without both him and Mike.

See ya tomorrow.
