My whole family came to my house for Thanksgiving.  It was wonderful. 

My parents came from Asheville NC, my sister and brother in law and two dogs from Denver, my brother and girlfriend from Atlanta and my nephew from Birmingham.

They arrived to an ice storm. Thank goodness the roads were clear. It was a really beautiful site. Everything was covered in crystals. 




The weather cleared just in time for the fun to begin 



We had a chilly outdoor BBQ birthday celebration for my nephew Sam and BIL Dan.  We were quickly warmed by the fire pit!


My brother’s sweet girlfriend Wendy, Steve, Me,  my sister Kim and her husband Dan.

We all got a little skeet shooting in.




Thanksgiving Day was so much fun.  My dad made pies, we all laughed and ate until we popped!
















I even broke out my vintage china.   I made Kim and Wendy wash them because I am sure I would have dropped them!
















Kim and Dad brought farm fresh eggs from their chickens and ducks…yum!
















Everyone had a little extra treat!














 We enjoyed the outdoors and the sunshine.thanksgivingwendyglenn

Kim, Dan and I visited Second Chance Farm owned by my neighbor Sandi (in the middle).  She rescues abandoned and abused animals.   That is worth a whole other post!














Steve and I sat still enough to have our picture taken together!















My mom and dad.  Married  60 years this Christmas! (I can’t tell you how much I love these two people!)



They all went back to their homes to live their lives.  But for 5 days, we were talking, hugging and remembering good times.  I am truly blessed to have a close knit family, I do not take this for granted!


My dogs Red and Tess  are wondering where everyone went!
















I hope everyone had as wonderful Thanksgiving as I did!
