So Much to be Thankful For…

On Thanksgiving day we were thankful before and after we enjoyed a traditional meal with turkey and all the trimmings.

On Friday Josh and Laura flew in.  We had lunch at our home when Josh and Laura arrived as we said our goodbyes to Katie and Andrew who drove to Idaho for an overnight at Andrew’s dad’s home. After lunch Steve and Lana continued on to Idaho for the rest of their holiday. Friday evening we enjoyed leftovers at Dan and Jamie’s.

Me and my little buddy.

Jaymison Joshua with his beloved uncle Joshua!

This is JJ’s expression when we say dessert!

On Saturday the girls did some shopping on Main Street in Colville to support our local small businesses. We all found something to buy. Katie and Andrew returned from Idaho on Saturday afternoon.

Saturday night we had a special meal and birthday cake to celebrate Laura who adds so much love and care to our family. Her birthday is later this week but since we were all together we took advantage of being able to celebrate in person. Auntie Lolo is loved so much!

This little guy enjoyed the singing of Happy Birthday.

The rest of the evening was fun and games!

Saturday was a full day. On Sunday we would be saying our goodbyes to our “Coast Kids”.

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. Memories of our shopping time there came right back – I have a cabinet in our great room to remind me of the great time we had. You’ve had a busy time over Thanksgiving. So much to be thankful for!

  2. You had a happy Thanksgiving, Praise the Lord you were able to spend time together. Thank you for sharing this special time.

  3. Oh and it all ends too soon. So glad that you and your family were together to celebrate Thanksgiving. That photo of Jaymison responding to “dessert” is priceless.

    This may be my last comment here unless I can figure something else out. My WordPress account will be deleted in a few minutes. I am so displeased with the censorship that WordPress is engaging in that I can no longer justify having an account with them. Don’t know how nice they’ll play after that.🤷🏻‍♀️

    Course, I’ll have to get my Ellen and Dear fix so you can expect my visits and comments via email.

  4. It is a good day(s) when all of our children are in one spot at one time. So glad your Thanksgiving weekend afforded you the opportunity to spend time with all of your people. God has given us so many gifts!!

    Great capture of JJ’s dessert face!! 🙂
