Give Thanks!

DH made his famous Sweet Potato casserole and we teamed up to make the Raspberry Pretzel Salad. This is the first year in forever that we haven't made the turkey which is actually a big relief (for me anyway). In years past, DH always volunteers to do the turkey. He likes to smoke it or deep fry. Unfortunately, we burned a hole in my dads redwood deck one year and I always stress when the turkeys not done on time.

First thing in the morning we are heading off to Happy Valley. I love Happy Valley. We moved away about 2 years ago. I miss my friends but we won't have time to go see anybody. Besides, they are probably all off visiting their own families. Still, it will be nice to visit the in-laws.

Tis' the season to be thankful. I'm thankful for family, health, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, good neighbors, friends, therapists, doctors, medicine, hugs, smiles, a kind word, The Book of Mormon, the temple, a warm home, food.....

Have a good one!


  1. When I lived in Logan, we called it Happy Valley.. is there another Happy Valley or does Logan still have the same name?? :-)
    I hope you had a wonderful day.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving, glad to hear you won't be burning any decks this year!

  4. Mel, I hope you had a fabulous thanksgiving. We of course missed you and your sweet family. I'm glad you didn't have to do the Turkey this year. That is a real big pain. See ya soon.
