Well Hey Yall!!! So good to have Yall visiting today with Us on Our Front Porch. Sure glad You got to spend this time with Us on this chilly day. Hope Your Family is doing well and your work week off to a good start.
It is a short work week for most of us since the Thanksgiving holiday is this week. This is one of my favorite holidays. I like to call it the “talking” holiday. Where Families big and small will gather for great food and good conversation. Its always been a time to play catch up with everyone.
Turkey, dressing, giblet gravy, deviled eggs, broccoli soufflé, squash casserole, mash potatoes, corn niblets, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, candied sweet potatoes, cornbread, angel biscuits, pecan pie, banana pudding, pumpkin pie, pineapple upside down cake, chocolate chip cookies, cheesecake brownies and of course good ole Maxwell House perked coffee and sweet tea headline the Ranch Menu this year.
Now in Our family it was not just about the eating, it was about the cooking too! Grandma and Mamma and all the women in the Family sipping coffee and chopping and mixing. In later years after Grandma passed away it would be me and Momma and My kids. Granddaddy called them hen parties. Lots of laughter and love in the kitchen. (That’s still my favorite room in the house). Yall know, I can even close My eyes and hear the laughter still. Those made some good lasting, cherished memories.
Now, once again, its time for all the wonderful holiday traditions and a chance to make some wonderful new memories too……always a blessing around the corner we just have to slow down a might and look for them.
Counting Our Blessings is always how We start the Holiday. This year I decided that I want to start it off since Our Family has had such a tough year…… I am so thankful for Sheila, Jake, Grace and Brian. Yall make the tough times bearable. I am also thankful for Our dear sweet extended Family Elaine, Erica, Briley and River, All Our Families, great Friends and Neighbors, Our Church Family and for each and every one of You reading this blog. Yall are all such a wonderful blessing.
~Love from the Ranch~
