Kids home for Thanksgiving

Hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving full of food, family and gratefulness!  We had an incredible dinner full of laughing and love.  Bobby and Clara were both able to come home and celebrate with us.  It is always wonderful having the kids come home for a little bit.  I always get a little nostalgic and wish they were still living with us, but I always snap out of it.  I love our new lives and I think it has made our family even stronger.

For the first time, Clara brought home her boyfriend for thanksgiving.  It was nice having another friend to share this wonderful time of the year with.  He was very nice and got along great with the family.  Hopefully he sticks around for a while. 🙂

I made a delicious meal for all of us, Clara even offered to bring some a side and a little desert.  She is so sweet and even followed my suggestion and brought a pumpkin dessert! 🙂  I made a turkey, all the “fixin’s,” and our favorite cranberry streusel for desert.

After our delightful dinner we pulled out the board games to relive the old days.  It was so much fun letting lose and relaxing as a family again.  We played everyone’s favorite game sorry and of course we had to conclude the evening with spoons.  It was so fun.

This time of year makes me really acknowledge how much I have to be grateful for.  I have such a wonderful family, a beautiful home, and great company I could not ask for more.  And thank you to my readers that have been reading the ups and downs of my middle aged life.  🙂  You mean a lot to me.

Hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving,

Until next time,

Nancy
