Thanksgiving this year was with what we call 'The Sisters'. This is when my sister Roxanne and her family get together with us - the M&Ms. Rox and Jeff had been having their kitchen/family room renovated and it was touch and go as to if it would be done before the actual meal. But in the end, it all turned out.
Unfortunately I don't have alot of pictures from the weekend because I forgot my camera and only had the iPad with me. We also had a shorter weekend because Grandma Ruth passed away earlier in the week and we had to get back for the funeral on Saturday.
Still, we could be very thankful and grateful for the many blessings of family and fellowship. We ate a relatively healthy Thanksgiving dinner (Rox and I are both on restricted foods and made some adjustments to the normally high carbohydrate options. I even made a whole wheat pumpkin pie with honey as a special treat.)
After lunch we went for a walk around town and then came back to play games for the afternoon. In the evening, we headed out to North Platte for some early Black Friday Shopping. The funny thing is we ran out of gas on the interstate and we had to wait for some friends to come help us. It was pretty memorable and something I doubt any of us will forget for awhile.

We hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving and remembered to give Thanks for numerous blessings!
