A Thanksgiving Tradition

Last year we started a new family tradition. The Friday after Thanksgiving (yes, the same day known to many as "Black Friday") just the 6 of us go to a hotel for the night, do a little shopping, and on the way home we pick up a Christmas Tree.

Chris and I realized last year that we NEVER go on a vacation just the 6 of us. It also marks the anniversary of us moving into our new house after rebuilding after our fire. Chris had worked so hard to have us in our home for our first Thanksgiving with our new baby. That first night, we slept on the living room floor. My poor sister got the flu and will never enjoy Rocky Rococo's pizza again. Chris's truck died in below zero temps as we were coming home from picking out a new dining room table. A day we will never soon forget.

From our family to yours...bless you and your family as you celebrate your traditions new and old.

We wish you enough.
We wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
We wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
We wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
We wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
We wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
We wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
We wish you enough. –Bob Perkins
