Thanksgiving 2009

They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness. Psalm 145:7

That verse is SO TRUE!!!  The Lord has been so abundantly good to us and we had so much fun celebrating our thankfulness to Him yesterday.  This Thanksgiving was wonderful.  Full of lots of family, friends, and TONS of yummy food.  Perfect!  🙂

We started the day like we start every Thanksgiving…with pancakes and parade watching.  We don’t go to my parent’s house to eat until late in the afternoon, so a big breakfast while we watch the parade is the way we spend the morning.

We ate the food picnic-style on the coffee table in the den.  This is the only time food is allowed in the den.  I just LOVE the Macy’s Parade, don’t you?!?  It would make me so happy to go one day!  The kids enjoyed all of the huge floats and CB LOVED all of the dancing.

After hanging around the house being lazy until way past lunchtime we got dressed and headed out to the backyard to play.

And finally, time to eat.  And time to put the camera away.  The rest of the night was full of laughter, great conversation and food.  And the occasional breaking up of a kid quarrel.  🙂  Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope yours was a day FULL of family, friends, love, and counting your blessings.  We are all SO Blessed.  🙂
