This year we stayed close to home for Thanksgiving.  I was tasked to make some desserts.  Wednesday night my sidekick and I got busy.  
I'll let you in a secret... everything I made came from a box.  Gasp!  I am giving myself grace.  If I don't have the time (which I didn't this year) to cook from scratch, then so be it.  Relaxing my hard on myself standards are a good thing.

Since our drive to dinner was under fifteen minutes we were able to have a slow morning. 
 We enjoyed our traditional cinnamon rolls and watched the parade.  It was delightful to not be rushing around to finish food and heading out for a road trip. 
Megan doctored her shirt.  It said "Happiness" and she taped over part of it to say Thankfulness.  She called it her comfy and festive shirt.  Ha! Ha! 
The whole gang was at my parents.  There was good food and a ton of laughs. We left with yummy leftovers and many memories stored away. 
Once home we relaxed and finished off the evening with a holiday classic. 

O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever. 1 Chronicles 16:34

I hope your day was full of food, family, new memories, and thankfulness. 

May you find joy in the journey as you chase your life!
