This Week...Full of Food, Family, and Friends

 

It’s Saturday and the winding down of the Thanksgiving holiday and the ramping of the Big One...Christmas and New Year’s Eve!

Cherish your human connections - your relationships with friends and family. Barbara Bush



Some of you may have traveled for the Thanksgiving holiday and if you did, I hope that your journey was or will be a smooth one. Since Larry and I hosted Thanksgiving dinner this year, I had only to travel as far as our local grocery store...at least once a day for the last week!

You don't have to give birth to someone to have a family. Sandra Bullock





By the time the turkey was carved and all of the dishes were out, I’d lost interest in eating. However, that’s really fine with me because we all know that Thanksgiving dinner is better the next day.

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.  W. T. Purkiser

It was fun catching up with family members especially those who now call Austin their home. And as some had to leave to have another Thanksgiving dinner with their in-laws, others arrived from their earlier dinners. 

 

 

Family and friendships are two of the greatest facilitators of happiness. John C Maxwell

 



And as we all know, it’s not about the food...well, as long as it’s good...but more about celebrating all that we have to be thankful for with our family and friends.

Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving Weekend!

Our meal(s) were fantastic, but the company we had was better. A long table filled with friends and family is more than anyone can ask for.

Too much good food!  Yesterday, we made turkey enchiladas, our day after Thanksgiving tradition.  Now we have two refrigerators full of food and are too full to eat it.  Well, maybe later today.  Loved all your quotes and especially they Sandra Bullock quote.  Thank you and I am glad you had a great Thanksgiving with your family.

I loved seeing the photos of your big gathering on Thanksgiving. And I concur about the time spent with family and friends. The highlight of the day for us was reconnecting with people - the food, quite honestly, was secondary.

Hi Kathy,
What a wonderful gathering you had. I have no doubt it is one of many to come now that you're back in Houston. 

You always have the perfect images and quotes for your posts. My favorite quote was:

Cherish your human connections - your relationships with friends and family. Barbara Bush

Hi Kathy Streib -  This is one Thanksgiving we did not host.  No leftovers around here.  I am about to work on Christmas cards and gift lists.

Well said, Kathy!

And as we all know, it’s not about the food...well, as long as it’s good...but more about celebrating all that we have to be thankful for with our family and friends.
