A Precious Thanksgiving

We had the BEST day today with blessings galore.
Most of our large family were able to join us around 
my long farm house table and one card table for 4.

16 loving hearts.....
missed the ones that weren't able to be with us....
but Christmas is on the horizon....😍😍😍

Deeds came over the night before and made the most delicious
CREAM CHEESE POUND CAKE !!! was so good.

 Little great-grand, HUDSON
we are discussing how many olives he can get in his mouth at one time.....πŸ˜†

Oh, how I love my boy, DAVID KEITH.
I haven't got my color back from being sick yet.....
but I'm working on it... I love my girl, STACY LEIGH !!

 Brooks and his beautiful sisters...

Isn't she beautiful !!!
 Selfies are sooo cool...especially when you get a great background like THIS...

 ahhh...there's HUDSON'S big bubba, GRAHAM...
sitting on the bench with his AUNT LACEY JEAN...

 I love my precious son in law, JENT.

Yep....HUDSON knows all about what those gum balls are about....!! 

MY girl with HER girls...
ain't life grand !!!
 ♥ ♥ ♥
And, while the weather was waaay too cold to even think of swimming...

a brave few hung out for a SHORT time in the hot tub.

Hoping your Thanksgiving was such a good one.

LOVE, bj
