We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, thanks to family near and far. My father-in-law arrived at our house early in the morning with some stuffing for our turkey. He visited for a little while before heading to the cemetery to visit my mother-in-law's grave. After he left, I called and spoke to my dad. Then, we focused on getting the turkey in the oven.
Once the turkey was cooking, the children watched a movie with their dad. I made a couple of dishes (yams and green beans); Catherine had made a jello mold the night before. The meal tasted delicious. As we finished eating, my oldest sister called and asked us to come over to their house for dessert. My younger sisters were already there. I enjoyed seeing all of our children together. Our nine nieces and nephews, plus our seven children, made for a full house. I wish that my brother, his wife, and their five children could have been with us, too.
We came home with one of my sisters' dogs. He (Tommy) will be staying with us for two days and the children are delighted.
