Thanksgiving is over

Actually, Thanksgiving needs to be every day of the year, not just one day.

As families are wont to do, not everyone can celebrate the holidays at the same time.
Paula, my old friend, is a case in point. With her son and daughter eating turkey at the in-laws, she decided to have them over on Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Four Generations

She asked me to come over to "make" their picture. And I was delighted to. Elmo and I hopped in the car and made the trek to grandma's house. Elmo would have loved to visit but  Bubba the bull mastiff was visiting and I didn't want Elmo to attack him. Ha!

Papa and grandkids

This is what it is all I got a little teary wishing that I had grandkids and family around.

I love black and white. It is so classic, don't you think?

Before they sat down for dinner, we went in the backyard to see the chickens and rabbit.

I can't remember the kind of chickens here. Maybe you know. They lay really cute little eggs.

Here is Paula with her grand babies. She loves them all!

This chicken is full grown.

Go away, kids....leave me alone!

Sweet bunny!

That's all folks! Hope you had a blessed  Thanksgiving! I just made some broth from my turkey bones to make soup this week.

God bless you, each and every one!

Oh, Charlotte, these are wonderful! I'm really partial to the b&w of the three kids. Classic is a great way to describe it. My Thanksgiving was spent with my dad and his wife and her daughter who brought along her boyfriend. I was missing my mom and wondering why my dad is always mad at someone. He had to tell me the latest fight he had been in with some very nice people that I had recently met. Sigh.
