This year me and Rocky are celebrating the holidays together for the first time as a married couple…and though we are over 600 miles away from our friends and family up north and miss them all dearly, we still managed to create a nice Thanksgiving and make memories of our own.

Aunt Debbie invited us over on Thanksgiving Day and we got to see our Granddaddy and give him his dinner.

It was the 5 of us at dinner; Me, Rocky, Mark, Andy and Debbie. We were so thankful for her delicious meal! I keep telling her it was the next best thing to mom’s cooking. :)

Then Andy came over yesterday for our own Thanksgiving meal.  Mark baked the turkey, mashed taters, giblet gravy, and pecan pie…Rocky made the baked ziti, a new tradition for us German/Scots-Irish not used to Italian food on Thanksgiving! and I made the sweet potato casserole…mmm mmm mmm!

Even the cats got to enjoy their Thanksgiving meal!

We have so much to be thankful for; our family, our friends and pets, our health, our jobs, a roof over our heads and food in the fridge…I’m learning every day that it’s those simple things, those things that we easily take for granted, that really matter the most in life. :)
