Post Thanksgiving

As I sat down this morning to write,
so many beautiful images danced around in my mind.
My youngest son Michael has been with us all week, he is a joy to have at home.
We had a lovely Thanksgiving with our family,
celebrated at our nieces house, I can't image having more fun.
We are up to 5 little ones, one cuter than the next.

The bird is deep fried...always!

Great smiles here, 
I fell before taking this picture,
it seemed everyone enjoyed the fall and "bounce" up!

Here we all are!

Perhaps one of the highlights of the past few days was meeting Ruth and Chris.

We went to dinner Wednesday night at Red Lobster, a tradition of sorts.
We order a couple of shrimp cocktail platters and a huge chocolate cake to bring to Deanna's,
while we are there to pick up those items, we always have dinner.
As we went to sit down, I thought I heard someone talking about purple, and a blog!
Ruth was sitting across from us and it just so happens, she reads my blog.
She only reads 3 blogs every day and mine is one of them.
Seems she knows a lot about me as she has been reading for seven plus years.
And, she recognized the hubs and can attest to his existence!
We have never met before.
She was dining with her son Chris, 
both lovely people and we had such a nice conversation.
We were sitting across from each other so we had plenty of time to talk.

Hi Ruth, I know you are reading, meeting you was a highlight this week,
something I am most grateful for.
Leave me a comment!

How cool to meet someone who reads your blog. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving.

Great family photos! A fun Thanksgiving! And what are the odds you would meet one of your readers just purely by chance? That's really cool!

Wow a whole week with your son, lucky you, looks like a wonderful day with family too, so great that you all can get together and with the way you are growing you may need to add another table soon :) That is a bummer you took a fall, hope you weren't injured. I took a big tumble on our vacation and am still a little sore in places because of it. How fun that you met a fellow blogger that visits your blog, what is the chances, that's great!

Getting to meet Ruth and Chris had to have been a wonderful treat for you. It's always fun to meet people that read your blog posts. I would love to meet you someday. Sending loving thoughts and hugs!
