A Peek From My Porch

Thanksgiving was such a blessing!  We got to travel to Kentucky to be with my family.  The third generation hosted the meal ~ a first!  It was so nice; they did a great job making us all feel welcome and at home.  We enjoyed a delicious meal, intense, belly-aching laughter, sweet fellowship and "Puff Moments."  Puff moments are the times we always take to give God thanks for things from the past year.  They are called that because, invariably, tears come, and the Puff box is passed around!  It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without that time!

Here is a little peek at our time together...

We got a lovely snowfall early in the morning.
This was our view as we traveled.
The roads were clear and the sights heavenly!

One of the tables of guests at dinner time!

He's always in on the laughter, and usually the instigator!

Desserts!  Mom's Buttermilk Coconut Pie was the hit of the day!
It's Laura Bush's recipe and you can find it here.

They had a photo booth!  It was so much fun.
My parents are such good sports!  I love this shot!
The fall decorations and the turkey platters are tucked away for another year, but thankfulness will live in our hearts for the past holiday we just shared with those that we love so much!

With love from my country porch,
