A day of thanks.  And family.  And friends.  A feast.  And fun.

Every year my birthday falls near Thanksgiving, and every few years it falls on Thanksgiving.  So, when I was a kid, my birthday cakes and decorations always had pilgrims on them.  This pair of pilgrims are ones that my mom sent me several years back.  I just had to break them out today.  I hope each of you had a wonderful day.

We certainly had a great day.  Julie, Marty, Sue, Laura and Joe joined us.  The menu included roasted (brined) turkey – 2 of them, to make sure we had leftovers, absolutely heavenly mashed potatoes, delicious and sweet squash fest, cranberry relish, green beans, the (awesome) brussels sprouts dish, and homemade yeast rolls.  For dessert we had monte’s apple tart, a birthday cake, and homemade vanilla icecream.  Woof!

After the delicious and nearly debilitating dinner, we had to move around a bit, so we played games inside and out until the cows came home.

I am thankful for all the blessings I have been given, great friends and family.   I am truly blessed.

And, one more thing to be thankful for:  thanks, Marty and Sue for the pretty vase!

Birthday tulip from Monte.  Birthday vase from Sue & Marty. 🙂
