Thanksgiving blessings

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899


These two rascals, Beautiful Beckett and Handsome Hudson are such blessings. It was our first Thanksgiving without Paw Paw and I know he was celebrating with us.

About 4 years ago Paw Paw delegated the deviled egg making to son John and his family. They've perfected the process and now clearly have taken over the role as the designated devil egg makers. Paw Paw was the teacher but they have added their own spin to them and we all love them!

About 3 years ago Paw Paw passed the torched of carving the turkey to son John and he sliced this 25 pound bird perfectly as well as a 12 pound deep fried turkey!


Of course our beautiful vegan grand-daughters whipped up a spinach, artichoke appetizer!


While food preparation was in the process 1,000 piece puzzle of the state of Texas was started!

It's amazing what can happen when many hands tackle 1,000 pieces... Finished in 2 hours!

Paw Paw always made the dressing and gravy but daughter Melissa accepted the challenge and produced excellent results!

These two siblings took over the reigns this year and orchestrated a memorable Thanksgiving...... a great tribute to Geno! Thank you...I love you both dearly

I know Geno was honored with your family Thanksgiving filled with his traditions. Having your family nearby has to be such a blessing for you.  Beckett and Hudson are sure growing.
