To The Deal Hunters

Now that we have consumed the turkey, potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and bottles of wine (and don’t forget the pumpkin pie)…it is time for the crazy shoppers to head out for Christmas shopping.

I wish thee well on your deal hunting.  May St. Nicholas watch over you during your hand-to-hand combat.  After all we want little “Billy” and “Susie” to have the perfect Christmas.  I shall sleep well and have breakfast around 9:00AM.

Happy Thanksgiving 2016

We Thank Thee
By: Ralph Waldo Emerson

For flowers that bloom about our feet,
Father, we thank Thee.
For tender grass so fresh, so sweet,
Father, we thank Thee.
For the song of bird and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

For blue of stream and blue of sky,
Father, we thank Thee.
For pleasant shade of branches high,
Father, we thank Thee.
For fragrant air and cooling breeze,
For beauty of the blooming trees,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

For this new morning with its light,
Father, we thank Thee.
For rest and shelter of the night,
Father, we thank Thee
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.


Happy Thanksgiving 2010

"The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth"...

This year we are having some family over to visit and celebrate Thanksgiving.  Like everyone, we will have turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls, stuffing, green beans, peas, carrots, corn on the cob for the kids, and all the trimmings.  There will be pies, cakes, and ice-cream cones (for the kids).

I purchased from the local Kitchen and Company store Cafe Express Milk Hot Chocolate for the kids and Pumpkin Spice Coffee for my Keurig machine.  Both will go great with dessert.

I found a Turkey in Disguise at Family Fun 3d paper craft the kids might enjoy making.  Giving them a fun project to will keep them busy and out of the kitchen while dinner is is being made.

During dinner we ask the kids what they are thankful for.  Myself, I am thankful for my family, friends and living in the USA.  We had a pretty good year.  They kids are are in good health, doing well in school and have lots of friends.  Their grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins are doing well.  We’ve enjoyed camping, riding bikes, and playing at the pool.

Happy Thanksgiving!
