We started the day off watching the Macy's Thanksgiving parade at home, while I cooked my contributions to the Thanksgiving Feast. This year I made Fall Pumpkin Dip, corn casserole, green bean casserole, and squash casserole. We ate with my parents for lunch, and then went to Blake's parents house for a later lunch. We then went back and spent a little time with my parents. We had a great day just being together.
I thank God for his grace and faithfulness. He has blessed me with a warm home, food to eat, and a precious family. He is good. All the time. I pray that I live my life in a constant spirit of gratitude to Him for all He has done.
"I will praise the LORD at all times. I will constantly speak his praises." Psalm 34:1

Claire's expression in this pictures cracks me up!
O Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, And a great King above all gods, In whose hand are the depths of the earth; The peaks of the mountains are His also. The sea is His, for it was He who made it; And His hands formed the dry land. Come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.

I believe Blake was quite blessed this year on his 32nd birthday. He had 3 seperate birthday festivities to celebrate him! Last Sunday after church, we went out to eat with his parents and Brad and Lydia at Outback. Wednesday night, I cooked one of his favorite meals for him (Spinach Alfredo Ravioli) and made him a birthday cake. After church his parents and Brad and Lydia stopped by for some cake. On Friday night, my mom made Blake his favorite meal. He loves her fried chicken (mashed potatoes, peas, biscuits, gravy, corn casserole) and she also had him a Paula Dean Ooey Gooey Butter Cake. I hope he had a great birthday week. I look forward to many, many more. I love you, Blake!
