Celebrating Thanksgiving

We had a great Thanksgiving this year, even in spite of taking Matthew to an immediate care facility in between the feasting and the pies. More on that shortly. The Doherty clan celebrated over at my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's house, and every dish was very good. I'll give the recipe for the sweet potato casserole that I made in my next post. It got rave reviews as well. Chris was able to make it back in from a trip as everyone was going for round two, or the turkey noodle soup that was simmering on the stove.

On to the story with Matthew. He has had a little cold since last weekend. He woke up from his nap yesterday, and was in a horrible mood. He cried for almost an hour. Wouldn't eat or drink anything, so everyone suggested I run him to an immediate care facility to have him checked out. Turns out he does have the start of an ear infection, so we filled the prescription today, and he is doing much better. At least he is back to his old happy self.

We have so much to be thankful for this year. God has truly blessed us, even when the times sometimes seem tough. We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!

Our nephew Ian made these cute little turkeys for the kids table... The feast!

My plate (shameful to admit it!), before I added the cranberry sauce... A view of the kids eating...

Chris made it back in time to do a little celebrating, right from work as you can tell...:o)
