My blog is going to be a little bit out of order, but I wanted to post this to wish everyone far away a VERY Happy Thanksgiving weekend! We had such a lovely day. Back in the early days of the school, back when we were small, we worked a 1/2 day, then came home and cooked turkey for dinner that night. These days we get Thursday off. I was blessed to find a turkey (that's right...turkeys can be hard to find in Turkey!), and that one of our guests offered to take the bird off my hands and smoke it! Mmmmm. You must know that turkeys were named for the country of Turkey. The early Americans thought the bird came from this part of the world.
We had quite the spread! And someone was quite ready to eat. I was given a ham last Spring. I froze it and saved it for this special day and my special guests.
We had the Macy's Day Parade (not this years, it doesn't start until 4PM our time, so streamed last year's parade) on in the background and just enjoyed chatting.
Sweet Cheeks couldn't get enough of this sweet baby. And I couldn't stop thinking how much I miss babies.
Here's the whole group. They blessed us by sharing this special day with us! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
