Thanksgiving 2011

Today was Thanksgiving.  Yesterday was Melody's birthday.  I cried once today, so far, and 4 times yesterday.  I really, really miss her!  I missed that potato casserole she always made too!  Craig and Joe fried a turkey for the first time.  YUM!!!  Overall, it was a pretty good day with beautiful weather.  I forgot the rolls, but we had turkey, ham, smoked salmon, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, carrot souffle, beet salad, squash, dressing, apple cake, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, and pecan pie.  There was food everywhere!

Mom, Rick, Russell, Carter, Charlie and Deborah joined us today and we really enjoyed each other.  We shared our home, sadness and love today with family and friends.  We remain grateful for all that we still have, even if one of our favorites is gone!  We missed my brother Jamie and his wife, Robin, and look forward to seeing them to celebrate Christmas.
