It’s Thanksgiving at the Lake House
and the gathering of family
is always equated to love overflowing
and the feeling of closeness . . .
A warm welcome to our family Thanksgiving!!
The greatest fun is coming early
and working together
to make decorations
for the house
As the children became teens,
it became not only a challenge
but fun to outdo themselves
We could see the pride in their eyes
over their original creations
and how could we not “ohh” and “ahh”
We deemed it strictly stunning !
Apple cider seemed a unique touch
for toasting before the big meal
the teens have fun finding the right look
for the hors d’oeuvres
The youngest could string the cards I found
so they would feel proud of their own contribution
In late afternoon we gather in the dining room
for lots of telling of the wildest tales,
often laughing until we almost fall off the chairs,
and then — what else – TURKEY!
I have always thought that
involving each member of the family
in making this another Thanksgiving
will become the unforgettable memories
in years to come.
I am hoping they will.
MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING
BE FILLED WITH JOY AND LOVE
