Family + Cooking = Happy times for Judy

I just love Thanksgiving! It's a family holiday without all the, I love to family + cooking = Judy's happy!

Not that I'm usually not happy, I'm almost always happy, but I'm happier when I have my family around me.

When my kids got married, I asked each of them one major request...that they would work it out so that every other Christmas, I had them all together. It's worked out...and so with that, having them the other every other Thanksgiving has also worked out. For Christmas, we're all heading to Texas...then we'll have ALL our family together...that's even better!

This year, Ron and I have a double bonus...we get to be with Joshua, Erica, and Thalia for both holidays! They had planned all along to go to Erica's family's for Thanksgiving. We decided to come down and visit prior to them hang out with them...and then head back Thursday. Erica's family invited us to their that's what we're going to do. I'm VERY excited!

I've always been so thankful that my parents and Ron's parents got along so well. It's what I wish for my own kids - that they'll love their new families. For Ron and I to be friends with their in-laws...well, I guess I call it another bonus!

I'm taking photos...and video of Thalia hitting a softball...I'll post those when I get home.

I hope you all have a very blessed Thanksgiving!
