These girls can be seen conniving all the time.
You never know what they are up to...
but it keeps us all smiling and wondering.
We just finished celebrating our Thanksgiving weekend.
The weather could not of cooperated more perfectly.
How would you know that a trip to the shop would become eventful and entertaining?
Bikes...Striders, Trikes, Teeter Totters..
Young and old...joined in the fun of playing a balancing act.
Isn't that what the Family is all about?
And finally I gave the cue...
"Dunk the turkey"
the moment they had been waiting for.
So this year we deep fried it outdoors as the weather was superb.
Did you know that it takes about 1 hour to cook a 15 pound turkey?
And it never tasted better.
One little one could not help but pick the freshly cut turkey.
We enjoyed a delicious meal around the family table...
and we were barely finished and I heard the words,
"Can we go out and play in the dark?"
The sun was setting...the evening mist was settling...
out came the jackets, blankets and toques.
And we sat for hours sitting around the campfire,
introducing Smores for some.
Others began to sing...
"You push the handle in...you push the handle out...
the smoke goes up the chimney just the same?"
And on it went, actions and all.
And guess who kept the momentum rolling?
Old time memories were being revisited and
we will all remember this Thanksgiving....2011
We were thankful and recognized God's hand of provision
in many different ways as we reflected over the past year.
