Thanksgiving Meal

With all the grandbaby excitement I forgot to say much about our Thanksgiving meal! This is the table before we ate. James and Loni have a very beautiful dining room table and we enjoyed being able to sit there. The candlelit centerpiece Loni made herself and it was so pretty and the candle smelled just right. The platter under the turkey is a milk glass platter from my grandmother - it was perfect!

I also took a picture of our meal as we were unloading it from the box. We ordered it from a local grocery store this year and it was very good! In addition to the box of food they also gave us a 12 pound turkey, so all we had to do was bring it all home and heat it up. I am just so thankful that we were able to be together on Thanksgiving and that is by far the most important thing. Well, that and finding out I'm going to be a Grandma - LOL!

Gratitudes
1. Never having to worry about where our next meal will come from.
2. The abundance of love in our family.
3. Being healthy enough to enjoy time together.
