This was the first time for us to host Thanksgiving dinner. Daddy, Mama, Jude and Shelley joined our family for a delicious lunch. We had fried turkey and dressing, butter beans, corn, dirty rice, and sweet potato casserole. Shelley also made a rich, chocolate candy bar cake. Jude especially liked snacking on Tim's homemade summer sauasage. Ty spent the day before Thanksgiving drawing pictures for all of our guests. Mostly he drew everyone a picture of themselves sitting at the table eating lunch. He was so proud of his pictures. After lunch we were all so sleepy. Lucy made herself a nest on top of Papa and they both went to sleep. Ty was itching to start decorating for Christmas immediately after lunch. He was so excited about putting his little tree in his room. I can't blame him. I love Christmas too.
