A Happy Thanksgiving and a Happy Grandma!

     I had the best Thanksgiving ever!  Two of my sons came down with one of my grandchildren and we had a ball!  Not only was the dinner fantastic but I had bought a farm raised turkey...cage free, drug free and totally natural and it was the best turkey we have ever had!  Moist, flavorful and tender....I will never buy anything else from now on.
 I haven't laughed that hard since the boys were little and now the grand boy makes me laugh too.  I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving.  We lucked out with the weather for their travels and when they got here we had a warm the 60's every day so we took walks in the woods and down to the lake. 

 They brought me flowers and a box of Demett's Turtles and took me out to dinner too!  I could get spoiled.  When they were little I always got a box of turtles from the kids for Christmas but by the time I would go to have some they would all be gone! LOL!  It's a standing joke now. 
We had a "bucket list" for Thanksgiving.  1) Take a walk to the lake and over to Benjamin's Creek which is my son's name and my grandson's middle name.  2) Work on a school project of cutting out construction paper in the shape of a big gingerbread man and decorating it and 3) make chocolate chip cookies together.     The above picture was us making the cookies and we found a heart shaped one.  We got everything done on the list but many of the pictures were taken on my son's camera's and I didn't get a copy before they left.  They said they'll email them when they get them uploaded.
 This is the "baby" in the son Jim.

 and this is the grandboy breaking sticks for grandma's kindling while his Dad tries to wake up! LOL!  He usually works nights so it was hard for him to adjust to being "awake" during the day time but he managed. 

 I spent today catching up, stripping linens and doing laundry and smiling when I thought about the wonderful time we all had together.  TTYL!
P.S. Tomorrow I will be posting THE BEST SOUP RECIPE EVER!!!!  So stop by....I'll try and have it up earlier too.  Have a great evening.  Oh, and did you notice...I FINALLY got my winter banner up.  I had to learn to use Pic Monkey as my banners from Picasa wouldn't work.  It's always something!  Enjoy your evening!
