Giving Thanks

I meant to take a picture of the pre-feast spread of delicious food, but the meal was over and finished within a matter of minutes. It seems a little pointless to spend so much time and effort preparing a meal that is gobbled up so fast, but I think it just emphasizes the fact that Thanksgiving isn't about the turkey (obviously not for me), its about acknowledging our bounteous blessings. I am so thankful everyday for my greatest FAMILY and the gospel of Jesus Christ that allows us to be an eternal family. Happy Thanksgiving:)

I couldn't agree more about the preparation vs. consumption frustration. Oh, and we can't forget the clean-up, either ... I think it took us almost 2 hours to clean up from our feast! But there was lots of visiting going on during that time which I'm sure helped to slow the process. :-) THANKfully that meal only happens once a year, so we can truly be thankful for it! LOL I'm thankful for YOU, Courtney! You are a great friend. And I'm glad you had a special Thanksgiving.
