Happy Thanksgiving! ~ A Throwback

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sedona Sperry Family

The top image is from my courtyard. The color on some of the plants is amazing this time of year.  Because of our weather, you can find color variegation in each leaf or branch. In the next month and January, my fire bushes will have brilliant red leaves always another treat I look forward to enjoying. 

The tie-dye image above is from Thanksgiving 2017.  My son, Ryan, on the far left, had been coming at Thanksgiving but last year he came the week after.  This year, he will not be able to make it so he will be with us in spirit.  Fortunately, the whole family got to see him on his birthday this year. 

In all my Gratitude posts, I stayed with a theme of the family but I did not mention my ActiveRain family.  I was saving it for today. I feel very blessed to be part of a community that is so welcoming and giving.  I learn, laugh and am able to connect with people from all around our wonderful country and that is something very special. So, please accept my gratitude for everything you do for this community. It is always an enjoyable experience to grab a cup of coffee and peruse through all the posts.  I miss it when I don't have the opportunity to check in daily.  Thank you once again and...

Such a great looking group!  I am glad you had such a nice Thanksgiving!  It has been raining all night long here.

Hi Michael Jacobs,

The tie-dye was my son's idea. He surprised us all with a shirt.  My husband still wears his around the house!

Hi James Dray,

My husband was outside at 7 am shaking the heavy snow load off all our trees! He is ready for more turkey right now!

Hi Wayne Martin,

Thank you! But the weather changed during the night! We have over 5 inches of snow right now and it should go on until 4 pm MST.

Hi Grant Schneider,

Thank you! It was a fabulous day. Most of the time, I can only get a 16 lb turkey for 10 people.  Yesterday, there were only 5 of us with a 21 lb turkey!  Lots of left-overs. My husband said it was one of the most flavorful turkeys we ever had. We BBQ it and I let it rest for a half-hour on the BBQ and carved it immediately and it came out moist!

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat - We have a lot of different versions of that pic!  It was an unexpected surprise from my oldest son.

Hi Brian England - SNOW - SNOW - SNOW! The trees were so heavy, Rick had to go out at 7 am to shake them off.  We have never had snow in November. Our Maple tree still is full. I will do a post later with pics!

Sheri, what a wonderful tradition, and you wouldn't have been able to wear short sleeves this year here --- still in the 20's......

Hi Sheri= it looks like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a big group and I loved it. While it was warm enough for shorts, the day was overcast. Can't complain!

Hi Joan Cox

Though we had some colder weather earlier in November, usually by the end of the month you can count on it!

Hi Kathy Streib - It was a wonderful day.  However, (and I am not complaining) it was quieter than usual.  We always invite those who do not have family close by.  This year, everyone had someplace to go!

Sheri - I'm so happy you're in the ActiveRain family! You have so much to give and I feel so fortunate to know you as a result. Your family is clearly top priority and the photos show what a loving family you are and genuine too!

When you're a regular on ActiveRain, it's easy to practice thankfulness, isn't it?
