My Ephesians 3:20 Thanksgiving....



Here's a little sample of my wonderful, simple, incredible, simple, amazing
2011 Thanksgiving.
No frills,  No fuss, No fancy shcmancy...
But pure delight from start to finish.

A little Paw Paw Nick and Nate time....
(my two favorite men in the whole wide world!)

Great Maw Maw Loni getting to see her great grandson for the first time!



Laughing at this girl.....



New slippers from Loni!


Waking up to all three of my chicks being under the same roof...


This Thanksgiving table cloth from Maw Maw D and all the fun it provided.....


 ......even Christopher had to add his touch!

Making biscuits with Paw Paw....


....even Jules got in on this one!


My Thanksgiving "happy" from the girls and Nate!


Loni catching up on her "Nate Time"


The extent of my decorations.... my table runner I made several years ago that we all sign and tell what we are thankful for each year.  I love it so much. 
 
The gorgeous flowers were from a dear friend from church who brought them to me while I was sick with the sweetest card about how she is praying for healing for me.
Couldn't be a more appropriate Thanksgiving centerpiece.

 A little time with my grandson.

My two mommas.
I could not be blessed more with the mother-n-law and momma the Lord chose for me.
So thankful for their influence in my life.

I love this man with every ounce of my being...
So much so, that I wore a Big Buck shirt in his honor since he had to miss so much hunting time taking care of his sick bride.

And last but not least....
SHE SAID YES!!
My sweet Lydia got engaged on Thanksgiving Day.
(this news will get a blog post all of its own but I HAD to let you in on the news!!)
This was taken right as she walked in the door and right before her Maw Maw Loni smothered her to death with celebratory hugs and lovin!!

I had a great Thanksgiving beyond what I even imagined.
"Now unto Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.."
Ephesians 3:20
I think we'll do the paper plates every year!!

    Thanks for the sweet glimpse into you Thanksgiving. It's not celebrated here, but as a red-blooded American in my heart, I have a little one every year. People think I'm crazy! One day I'd love to have a proper Thanksgiving in the US, but for now I'll just look at your photos and dream :-)
