My sister-in-law and mother-in-law do most of the cooking. Our house has Christmas Day dinner. So we take sodas, pies (Costco), and chips and dips. I enjoy the time of sitting in the kitchen, the guys in with the tv and football, and talking about the year just past and the one coming up. How much the boys have grown and what does everyone want for Christmas.
The rest of my family is at Ft. Hood Texas (son, Pvt. Tim) and San Diego (brother, sister-in-law, niece, and soon to be born nephew) That is it. It is me and husband’s family for Thanksgiving. We don’t even have grandson and daughter this year, they will be in Disneyland.
I think it will be a quiet year this Thanksgiving. Our nephew the only child and a few less people, and thinking about those not there and those not here anymore.
I am thankful for all I have, all the ones I love, and all those who have touched my life.
