On Thanksgiving Day

This is the turkey that sat on a plate
On the table just before everyone ate
On Thanksgiving Day

This is a turkey the little ones made
Telling of the thanks that we gave
On Thanksgiving Day

These are the rolls that across the table were thrown
By children of all ages including those grown
On Thanksgiving Day

This is end of the table number one
Where the kids sat and had great fun
On Thanksgiving Day

This is Mattie Lynn as cute as can be
Sitting directly in front of the cooked turkey
On Thanksgiving Day

This is cutie pie Caleb Paul
Who sat by the stuffing that stuffed us all
On Thanksgiving Day

This is Abby Sue
Posing at the table just for you
On Thanksgiving Day

This is Brayden who is saying hurry
I'm ready to dive into some yummy turkey
On Thanksgiving Day

This is Jacob showing his name card
Knowing that eating the turkey would not be hard
On Thanksgiving Day

There were so many memories
To many to really share
Like my grandpa telling old war stories
Of his bravery there
And all of my family together again

On Thanksgiving Day 2010

Phone Photo Phun

Well it's been a month since my last post and I just don't think I'm going to win the "blogger of the year" award this year! Oh well, there's always next year...

Anyway, here are a few of the latest pics from my phone...hence the name Phone Photo Phun!

Now, before proceeding, you have to promise not to judge. We put up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. I used to have a fairly strict rule about this, but a couple of years ago I decided that this was supposed to be FUN. It was supposed to be about my family being together and celebrating CHRISTmas. So from then on we have just been having some family fun nights when the schedule allows and put things up gradually and it's no stress. Tonight was one of those nights...and here are the results!

Here is the boys tree. Sports of course.

Here is the top of Abby's tree...just thought I'd tell you in case you couldn't tell...

Here is Abby's basically throws up purple...and that's just the way she likes it!

Here is the top of the boys tree...

Here is Abby's favorite ornament on her tree. It is a ballerina from the Night Before Christmas Ballet.

The boys tree is not a fair-weather tree. We are fans, for real.
