Thanksgiving

I know Thanksgiving has come and gone, but I just wanted to show you a few highlights from our Irish Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is NOT a holiday here, of course, but we celebrated anyway with me making my very first Thanksgiving meal. I was scared out of my wits and was praying that it would be edible. God is good and it turned out pretty good. 

Here is a picture of David's plate before the gravy was applied...

So...what am I most thankful for you ask? Well, I know it is hard for you to believe this, but I am so SO thankful for my wonderful handsome husband who I love more and more every day! So maybe that isn't a surprise to some of you but here is a slightly more random thing I am thankful for...


It has been frosty and cold in Ireland quite a bit this winter so far and most people are saying that it is the worst winter they have had in a long time. 
But secretly, deep in my heart, I am so very thankful for every bit of frosty whiteness that appears. It makes me feel more at home when everything is white during winter. It just seems right!

Having the clothes freeze to the clothesline was a bit weird though!
I seriously could have let the jeans stand up by themselves! It was so cool! (The neighbor's probably thought I was coo-coo parading through my backyard taking pictures of my clothes on the line but oh well.)

Your Thanksgiving meal looks delicious! It is defenitly a colder winter this year! I have been so happy to see the snow. Although I have been away from home for ten years, it really still makes it feel like home when the winters are white!
