Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons. (Ruth Ann Schabacker)
We went to Ohio for Thanksgiving.
So, if I didn't answer your comment from last week I will - I'm just late.
My son and his family live there and my daughter and grandson came too! Our little family was all together, and I was so grateful for that. We do not get a chance to all get together very often and now with grandson on his own - it will get even harder.
What I was grateful for was that everyone made an effort to get together and that is what it takes.
My daughter in law is a 'real' cook and uses the recipes from Southern Living. Needless to say, we had a wonderful dinner. The works. Turkey, two kinds of stuffing, cranberries, sweet potatoes with the crust topping, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans - the works. I was so grateful for the dinner.
She went to a lot of work for us. Another thing I am grateful for.
I brought two pumpkin loaves up and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I was grateful that my younger grandson loved them.
We are originally from Chicago, and we have a wonderful meat store here in GA and it is the only place we can find authentic Polish Sausage, so we bought some up as a gift to my son - it is a family memory, and he was so grateful.
Other things I was grateful for:
We had safe trips both ways.
Good 'enough' weather.
We got to watch our other grandson on Friday while his parents went to work. We painted rocks. He is 12 but he still did it and had fun.
We went out to eat at the Rusty Scupper that my older grandson loves, and we consider a tradition when we go up there.
