Carpe Diem ~

Seize the Day…


We are taking all the time we can to enjoy each others company for the days we have together right now. Tomorrow we are going to have our Thanksgiving meal early, all together, with 7 more joining us. The turkey is thawing. The yams, potatoes, gravy, green beans are waiting to be prepared. My sister is bringing the rolls and wine. Dan’s long time friends who became our good friends are joining us. Dave and Beth are bringing the pies. Jamie and Sarly are bringing their sweet babe. We’re going to make a champagne punch I saw on Susan’s Between Naps on the Porch. Josh and Laura will mash the potatoes since I’m still having a tennis elbow issue. Dear will carve the turkey. Katie will write the names on the place cards. I’ll make myself a note to remember to take photos. Life is rich.

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Nothing, but nothing is better than having your children together – all at one time. I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner. How could you celebrate any other day?

  2. What a great photo! Thankful along with you for all the blessings of this past year. And you are in your Northwest house this Thanksgiving, as a resident, not a part timer…and the mother of a Bride to be too!

  3. Sweet picture of your family, Ellen. The perfect setting for your early Thanksgiving dinner. And, I am coming over for leftovers… so, save some of those pies for me! 🙂
