Thanksgiving Fun

Well, the day is done, but the thankfulness goes on and on.  We had a full house today.  We had 20 here for the supper hour.  Our traditional Thanksgiving dinner consist of fried chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, homemade dinner rolls and salad.  Unfortunately, this year I forgot the salad fixings!!! did that happen?  Traditional dessert is pumpkin pie, banana bars with homemade cream cheese frosting, brownie and chocolate chip cookies.  This year we added a strawberry pie, cherry pie, a peanut butter cookie  bar, lemon cake balls, and home made cherry mash!  Do you remember the cherry mash candy from years ago???  Hubby's favorite!  Daughter-in-law #3 made them!!!  Okay, so the desserts out numbered the meal!!

So, what do you do when you have the ages of children from 26 to 3 years old?  You get all the Nerf guns you can find, and swim noodles that have been made into light sabers, turn off the lights and put the "man-children" (males 15-26) against the girls and the little guys!! 

This is just a few of the "army".
The three big guys::  Son #2, Son #1, Son #4 (yes, that is an Elmo Shirt!)
The medium sized players:: Son #7, Son #6, Daughter #5
The two youngest players::  Grandson #1, Daughter #7
(I think we should tremble and fear!)

Trust your Thanksgiving was a wonderful and blessed day!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!
