Happy Thanksgiving

I'm whupped. We had 20 folks here today. Most of them were kids. The thing about kids and Thanksgiving is that it's not really about the food. It's about having fun.

Our great-great-nephew Easton came with his grandmother and great-grandmother. He's in pre-school.

He was cranked but he was not a fan of the dogs. When I told him the dogs owned the farm and they only let us live here, he thought about that for a long time. Soon, he was fine with them being around.

Today was a couple of first for him. Zuzu which is my nephew Jame's baby daughter taught Easton how to go through the doggie door. He was ecstatic.

I managed to get them all to stand still for a few moments, but as you can tell by the look on Jordan's face (far left) that he really thought slowing down to take a picture was a waste of time.

I hope today has been a one for you and your family.

For those going shopping later this evening, you might want to read a post from a few years ago about shopping on Thanksgiving. CLICK HERE.


  1. I just awoke from my turkey coma. Leftovers from Thanksgiving are the best. You are growing a nice crop of nieces and nephews.

  2. You may be whupped - but you wouldn't have had it any other way.

  3. Kids and pictures, like herding cats.

  4. I don't doubt you were whupped!!! But the doggie door episode is cute.

  7. Just look at those kids.
    There's Jordon, shoulders slumped, whether from exhaustion or dejection at the halt of play, who knows?
    And I do believe I see Miss Summer ( or is it Miss Daisy?) with her lovely smile. I now think of her as Summer Breeze and this leads on to the words from the song -makes me feel fine - because I feel sure that everyone who comes across Summer in their day must surely feel fine. She looks to be a lovely, kind girl.

  8. Beautiful Children. You and Jilda are blessed.
