Thankful to Gather with Those Who Matter

 

Family gatherings during the holidays has always been a priority. We are very traditional in our ways and are happy that our children recognize the importance of creating memorable moments for their little ones.

 

When the boys were growing up, we were up very early, a hearty breakfast was made, usually homemade waffles. We'd eat, chores were done and the kids left to play outside. Then we'd get busy baking and cooking.

 

Back in the day, my parents and brother would also join us for an entire day of catching up and feasting. We often ate outside at a table because of the mild weather. Several years later, we traveled north to celebrate. 

 

 

Last year, Michael and I decided to spend the Thanksgiving weekend in Fort Mohave, near Laughlin, Nevada with Candice Donofrio. She cooked up a most wonderful meal and we all had so much fun!

 

We will be sharing Thanksgiving this year with Sebastian, Devyn, Kenslee and Kodah in Texas. Though there's nothing like being home for the holidays, this trip promises to be a very special one for all of us!

 

Devyn insists on making the entire dinner from scratch in her kitchen, from the mashed potatoes and gravy, the green bean casserole, stuffing to the delicious pumpkin pie and whipped cream for dessert.

 

Kenslee has made big plans for most of our time. According to her, we will be doing  a lot of projects, coloring, going to the park, making cookies, etc. This Gma is also looking forward to snuggle time with little Kodah!

 

While the world continually changes with the seasons, evolving year after year, the true affection we have for our children and grandbabies, remains steadfast. The love grows stronger every day because, Family Matters.

 

Am immensely thankful and grateful for a blessed life! 💝

 

This is my 4th entry to the NOVEMBER 2022 THANKSGIVING GRATITUDE CHALLENGE, hosted by Debe Maxwell, CRS. Thank you!

What a coincidence that all the smiles are big and everyone has the same hat.

Hope the meal is pleasant and everyone gets their choice of desert

That was certainly a tender moment, Candice A. Donofrio and she does remember it. She told me this weekend that she wants to live in Utah when she grows up! 💜 u BB!

Hi Wanda,

You are a family that knows how to celebrate.  That fun pic says it all.  You are very blessed to be able to enjoy and have fun as a family. 

Here is my contribution to fun family pics!

I remember the days when I made an entire holiday dinner from scratch....those days are long gone for me.  I wish Devyn the very best for a positive and fun experience.

 

Happy Thanksgiving from the Sperrys

Yes, we definitely have FUN when together! Unfortunately, everyone was sick when we arrived and my husband also fell into it. We did make the most of it and appreciate and are grateful for every moment with family, Sheri Sperry - MCNE®.

 

Love your pic! ☮

Hope yours was exceptional. While away, I focused on being present, so did not write any posts, Kat Palmiotti. Despite everyone getting the crud, we were together for all the right reasons during the holiday!
