Happy Thanksgiving

We are thankful today for warmer temps—all the way up to 20 degrees, not as much wind as predicted and being able to get down our driveway.  We are so thankful for our friends, family and all our other blessings.

Our Thanksgiving feast was only about a mile up the road from us at the home of our friends Geoff and Nancy—a few years ago, they converted an old shop building into a guest house—with its big open living area, it converts easily into a large dining area.  There were 14 of us this afternoon and it was a very enjoyable gathering.  Boo and Terry were to have joined us but were unable to get through the snow drifts near their house having to turn around and go back home, bummer!

George called us about noon and asked if they could ride with us, they had gotten their truck stuck in the driveway half way up.  Mike took the skidsteer down and plowed them out.  This storm has been incredible—we have never had this much trouble navigating around here!

Our meal was delicious and as usual we indulged too much.  But the good part about having the meal at someone else’s house—they get to keep the leftovers!  I did bring home way too much pie that wasn’t eaten. 

Emmi stayed home alone and told us how woeful it was when we arrived back at home.

And while it is always hard to be away from family, it is wonderful to have such good friends with which to spend the holiday. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
