We spent a comfortable day at home, in front of the fire the tv and Wii.  We spent it with one another, laughing, playing and eating way, too much.  We spent it outdoors in our wonderful world, with our Martha in the brisk, freezing November cold.  It was a beautiful day.  One where we only ate baked goods made by our 12 year old daughter (pumpkin roll, two pumpkin pies and one apple), where Jude honored Charles Schultz and everyone understood the blessing of too, much food.  We thanked one another, thanked the pilgrims and shared gratitude for our very existence.  A very, Happy Thanksgiving, indeed.  

Our faces crack me up.  The sun was so bright no one could see the picture until we were home!

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
