Thanksgiving 2016

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It's just the three of us; it was laid back and peaceful. We enjoyed turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, corn, stuffing, and mom made a three cheese potato au gratin dish that was amazing! It was truly a beautiful day.

Awesome root beer from Germany!

Stirring the cheeses.

Dad wanted a picture of me winking. I can't wink to save my life.

Also, I love this commercial Amazon made. It describes my world. I was happy they aired this commercial on Sprout. a channel for toddlers, last night.

I loved one of the comments on this video: "At the end of the day, we all bow down to our God." So true and so beautiful.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving as well.


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    That is a wonderful, powerful commercial! When it feels so good to be kind and accepting of people, all people, why do so many turn away in hate, fear and mistrust? Thank you for posting that.

    I enjoyed seeing the highlights of your Thanksgiving celebration. I hope your pet monster got enough to eat. :) Mrs. Shady and I traveled across the state to her daughter's house where we had a great holiday feast that included turkey, ham and three kinds of cranberry relish and sauce. It was delicious!

    Enjoy your Black Friday and weekend, dear friend JM!

    1. Hi, Shady!

      I love this commercial because it describes my world so well. I'll e-mail you about it. But, it's so true and I'm glad Amazon showed the beauty of coming together. At the end of the day, the three major religions aren't that different from one another. God is the same God for them all.

      He did! He slept during dinner and I made sure he had plenty of leftovers. Yum! Your dinner sounds great too, minus the ham. :) Hmmm, three kinds of cranberry relishes and sauces? Sounds interesting!

      You too, dear friend! Hope you didn't venture out into the madness!
