Happy Thanksgiving!!

Around our house, Thanksgiving is extra busy because my youngest son was born just a few days before the holiday. This year his birthday fell on Tuesday, so while most folks were busy getting ready for Turkey Day, we were knee deep in tween-age boys, birthday cake, presents and your general birthday chaos!

It’s also hunting season … and around our house, that’s significant. Let’s just say my husband chose Lewistown first for the hunting & fishing, second for the job. So pretty much everything revolves around the last hunt, the current hunt, the next hunt … you get the idea.

So as I write this on the eve of Thanksgiving, my husband has already packed a lunch for tomorrow and gone to bed, with the alarm set for 5-something so he can get out to his favorite spot before sunrise. Even though it is after 10 p.m., my house is crawling with my very awake nieces and nephew, who managed to sleep a chunk of their 6-plus hour drive over here with my parents and are now raring to go for a while yet.

There’s a thawed out (I hope) turkey in the fridge, four pumpkin pies stashed in the back porch (no room in the fridge), and a new layer of toys, popcorn, shoes & other “stuff” strewn across my all-day cleaning job.

So rather than concoct some clever Thanksgiving layout to share on this site for this Thanksgiving Day … or create some other appropriately-themed post, I decided to instead share a couple birthday photos before shifting focus away from the computer and on to the family.

Which is exactly where I hope you are on this wonderful holiday as well.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with you and yours … and we’ll catch up again after the turkey’s all gone!!
