Perhaps this post should be titled "A Wedding, A Trip and A Feast", because that is the recap of my week. But let me first wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. I know I am writing this fairly late, and many of you are having your Thanksgiving reward by now... sleeping peacefully in your beds. But perhaps there are some of you out west, that are still awake.
We celebrated a wonderful Thanksgiving day today, how about you? What did you do and what did you eat? I always love to hear how you guys celebrate your holidays. As for us, we enjoyed a special dinner with our son Nathan and his precious family. As I had mentioned in my previous post, we have been away this last week. It was a good trip, filled with constant activity. We got home Tuesday night just in time to put together our Thanksgiving meal.
We drove to Arizona a week and a half ago, to celebrate our son Russell, as he got married on Saturday. It was a beautiful wedding. We are so happy for Russ. He and his new bride are a beautiful couple. His happiness is now ours. That makes four for us now; four children married; over half way there. :) Steve and I celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary this week....well, we didn't really celebrate yet... and we didn't remember until we were doing our Thanksgiving shopping a few hours from home... haha. But it is another fun landmark that we rejoice in.
All week long we enjoyed family and friends, and finished with Russ and Michelle's beautiful wedding and reception. Then home we came; over the river and through the woods.
It snowed today. My grandchildren have been waiting for that snow and hoping for that snow, and now they will get to enjoy it, with more to come in the morning.
Here is a small recap of our week in pictures.

It has been a wonderful and joyful week for us. We are very Thankful to God for many things. I have a few fun stories I would love to tell... but I'm thinking they will have to wait. In the meantime, Blessings to you all and Happy Thanksgiving.
