Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year. We go to my Uncle’s house at noon, eat until we can hardly breathe and sit by a huge bonfire until after dark.
Even if it is 25 degrees outside and there are snow flurries in the air, if the fire is big enough – you can not keep me away. I sat by the fire for hours wrapped in a blanket. Happy.
I wish I had some pictures to share, but I don’t. I was too busy sitting by the fire, doing nothing. Taking pictures would have required movement. Around here Thanksgiving is not about movement.
Here’s the highlights of this Thanksgiving:
- The bird.
Sitting by a bonfire during snow flurries.
Watching my brother ‘stoke’ the fire with a leaf-blower.
The leaf blower effect required everyone to move back approximately 15 feet so they didn’t catch on fire.
The end of the leaf blower melting.
The galvanized-steel fire-ring melting (Can that happen?)
My cousin propping his boots up on the galvanized-steel fire-ring (that was melting) and melting his boots.
My brother introducing all the kids to a new vocabulary during all the fire-melting escapades.
My precious new cousin, McKinley, sweet baby girl, (6 weeks old).
Being with family.
Hope you had a Great Thanksgiving!
Sending love to you and yours!
