Happy thanksgiving to you, Koralee!! Enjoy all that yummy food!! I like your quote for the day... it reminds me very much of something my aunt told me when I was a teenager...
Look for the good in every person you meet.
Have never forgotten that.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, and did you say apple pie with caramel sauce? Sounds sinfully good. When I saw the acorn photo I thought it was a beautiful pendant for a necklace; it would be, wouldn't it?

My turkey is in the oven, stuffing, brussel sprouts, carrots, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie & whipped cream.
And that is just the beginning of what I am thankful for.

Hey! I never heard of Canadian Thanksgiving but whenever I hear of American Thanksgiving and the story behind it, it sounds like a such a lovefilled and special holiday and with some great food to add to the cosiness of it! Your meal sounds delicious. Wish I could join you :)!
Happy Holiday and have a great new week!

I'm grateful that my chickadees all traveled safely {so far} as they traveled back and forth from the Dominican Republic! They were all at a wedding!
The sermon today was about gratitude & noticing the blessings ♥
Thank you for being a blessing to all

OH DEAREST! I KNOW YOU HAD A GREAT TIME! What a fun celebration and I just know that you had a memorable time! THANK YOU for visiting with me; yes, life is so demanding at school and the stress levels are much to much to bear....the weekends are my friend and I can't wait for our Thanksgiving to come! HOWEVER, two days before we get off, we have ARENA STYLE conferences to do since now we each have 50 students...oooooo, I better not think of that yet!!! HAPPY AFTER THANKSGIVING TURKEY DAY! Sandwiches on the menu for today????

MUCH LOVE, Anita

Happy Thanksgiving sweet friend! I hope you and your family have the very best day.
I was in Vancouver one year for Thanksgiving and was lucky enough to have a taste of the food and it was wonderful. I know exactly what you are saying with the elastic waisted pants.

Happy week
Hugs
Carolyn

Becky said...

jeanette from everton terrace said...

Hope it was a wonderful day for you all (I'm sure it was). I wish our Thanksgiving was in October, I find it too close to Christmas and the time in between seems to get lost.

I wish we celebrated Thanksgiving in Australia for the food alone xx

Christine Hoffman said...

Happy Thanksgiving dear one!
Oh how I wish I were there to share in the day with you, and eat some of your scrumptious fare, AND see your table setting (because I just know that it is beautiful!)

Eat a slice of pie for me:)
