Turkey and Thankfulness for Being Alive

Just a little Thanksgiving recap...even though we said we weren't going to do much of a Thanksgiving dinner (since we did one for Peter's birthday just a month ago), we did (my mom did really - I made one pie), and as always, it was delicious.
Once again, Peter got his turkey leg.  And, the kids drank some sparkling grape juice - even though Carter was the only one who liked it.

For the first time in my thirty-four years, I tried the cranberry sauce (jello-like stuff?), and I liked it, even with a bite of turkey.

Genevieve enjoyed a bit of everything (look at those curls coming).

Every time one of my sweet parents would sit to eat, the kids would need something else.

Then, John Paul asked if I'd go outside with him while the others watched a bit of football.  He drove round and round in circles, trying to get faster with each go.

 Then, we looked over to see his biggest fan watching the entire time.

And, Sophie decided she needed to come, too.

The kids found this bell in Elley's box of ornaments and decided they needed it as a school bell.  Peter said that I could ring it in the mornings when it was time for school, and "whatever we're doing, we will stop and come to school!"  We'll see how that goes!
Then, they finished the day off with a little episode of Tom and Jerry.
When we got back home and were getting into bed, Jeremy asked the kids to mention one more thing they were thankful for.  One mentioned our family.  Another mentioned the wonderful day.  And, still another was thankful that certain members of the family weren't dead.  Me too, buddy, me too.

Hope your Thanksgiving was special in just the way you needed it to be!
