Sunday Reflections…

It’s Thanksgiving week! 🦃 And Thanksgiving Dinner is at my house! I’ve been thinking about all the work I have to do this week to prepare… Making a list… But, at least the menu is set… I got ham again

Im doing the ham again… Ya’ gotta love ham!

 I also got the sweet potatoes 🍠 But I’m putting a different spin on it this year … Instead of the regular ”Sweet Potato Casserole” you may expect… I’m Doing a Sweet Potato Bar instead! You get a whole, baked Sweet Potato & you top it yourself! Brown sugar, butter, marsh-mellows, candied pecans, fresh cinnamon, whipped cream, etc!

I’m doing a ‘sweet potato bar’ this year. I’m envisioning a great success 😊

And I always fix several pecan pies from my MiMi’s recipe…

My family loves PIE! Heres a few I fixed for Holidays past… 2 Pecan and 3 French Coconut 🥥

Everyone else is bringing something as well, can you say Feast! There will be Family and friends and LOTS of good food! I have a LOT to be Thankful for! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
I am also very aware of the men and women who serve our country 🇺🇸 and will be unable to return home for the holidays. We owe them a very special Thank you and prayer ❤️🙏🏻

And there are so many around that don’t have as much to be thankful for… Many that even dread the holidays. I know I need to do my part to help others as well…

Well, with all that being said, I better get started…

Have a Thankful week 🙏🏻

“Give me the end of the year an’ its fun 
When most of the plannin’ an’ toilin’ is done; 
Bring all the wanderers home to the nest, 
Let me sit down with the ones I love best, 
Hear the old voices still ringin’ with song, 
See the old faces unblemished by wrong, 
See the old table with all of its chairs 
An’ I’ll put soul in my Thanksgivin’ prayers.”

Sunday Reflections…

We had a beautiful week of nice Fall temps, enjoyed the peak of Fall color and got quite a bit of work done to boot… Today was a nice family day of preparing for the Holiday Season that is upon us 🦃🎄 We decorated a bit, went thru all the menu for Thanksgiving to take inventory and be ahead of the game. We also cooked up a big pan of Chicken and sausage gumbo 🥣

The gumbo came out great!

Even the dogs helped in the kitchen…

Bell volunteered to be a taste tester 😊

We are only a week and a half away from Thanksgiving😮 This season is just flying by 🌬

I love the decorations that my wife does around the holidays 😊

Im starting early this year! Im already in the Holiday Season 🎅🏻

Thanksgiving is Coming!

“An attitude of gratitude is a never-ending prayer.”

Have a great night!

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day!

I was always teased about this day because not only is it a very important part of our history as a country, it’s my birthday as well 🎁 Still to this day I get a call from my uncle saying “your birthday still lives in Infamy”… HaHa, smart butt 😂

But in all seriousness, we can never forget these important dates in our history! The attack on Pearl Harbor was the attack that “Woke the sleeping giant”! It drug us into WWII, to ultimate victory & established the United States as the preeminent Super Power in the entire world 🌎

It’s our duty to remember and to teach our kids what happened and why.

Y’all have a wonderful day. Never forget!

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

PS: And Thanks for all the Birthday wishes! 🎈
