Let's say Thanksgiving is a time to give Thanks....This month we have had many things to be Thankful for...Just glad to move on to December.Yep that's my Mom...doesn't she look great..She is 7 1/2 weeks post op from hip surgery..She has done fabulous I am so proud of her and her determination to get better. She is standing in front of this rocking horse and seal...(you know me I had to get a picture while Dad was parking the car) we are at Children's hospital my 2 yr old nephew is going into surgery today, we are on our way to be with my brother during this difficult time. All ended up great and he is back him doing well. We thank God for this and the many friends and family that prayed.

My Aunt and my Mom as we were over at my Aunts house, Autumn went to help decorate the top of her kitchen cabinets for Christmas, you can see some of it from this picture. we had a really nice time us four together. Mom is holding an Christmas decoration my Aunt got her, it has a red cardinal inside...My Grandma always loved red birds and So do Mom and I, we watch them in our yard and feed them. They are so precious and beautiful this time of year against the white snow.

Autumn so excited that Suzie my aunts dog is letting her hold her....For some reason she isn't to sure of Autumn...

Don't we look like a lively bunch, we just had our Thanksgiving dinner and Mike has to go to the hospital in the morning for surgery. So he couldn't eat much..and we are all a bit nervous about it.

Autumn and Nana cleaning up from dinner.

Dad carving the turkey, as Michael waits to grab a piece. We were all so hungry, we wait till my Dad gets home from work to eat our Thanksgiving dinner with him.

Mike the day before, always make a brine to soak the turkey in. He was so very sick and in pain but was so happy to take care of the turkey that he wasn't going to get to eat much of at all if any.
See we usually have Thanksgiving every year for the family, but for some reason I just didn't have it in me. My mom had had hip surgery and I wasn't sure how she would be, and frankly I was tired. So I let everyone know I was passing this year. Well Now I know why and so glad I listened to that small voice inside me...Mike ended up with Dr. visits and a scheduled surgery the next day. Then my nephew wasn't feeling well and ended up in the hospital the day I was bringing Mike home...Then when we were at the hospital the day of my nephews surgery we were leaving and my Dad fell in the parking lot when he went to get the car. Bruised his arm and ribs along with cutting up his knee...I said Dear Lord I know the meaning of laughter is the best medicine...because if I didn't laugh and stay positive I would have cried for days...Our God is so good and I am truly so Thankful for all of my family and friends...
Next year Lord willing Thanksgiving is back at our Home...It was very quiet and boring without everyone around to laugh and joke with...Till next time God bless
