Eighteen Ways To Happiness

Thanksgiving Day 2015

All I did is eat, sit and relax

So close to taking a nap

Fighting sleep

Great weather

Sunny and in the 50's

Taking It all in

Watching my brothers family cook

Irrestable monkey bread teasing me with every bite

Stuffed mushrooms to figs with blue cheese and procuito

A nibble here

A gobble, gobble there

As I fill my plate with seconds

The turkey and ham were delicious

String beans and broccolinI over flowing

Crispy garlic potatoes and squash

Corn casserole

Homemade cranberry sauce

I feast my eyes on the lovely desserts

From juicy apple ,blue berry, five berry, pumpkin

Don't forget the chocolate cream pie

Topped off with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream

Cheers from the other room

While football plauers make a tackle on the big screen

Cracking peanuts during intermission

Four children and a few adults playing outside

Having fun racing around

Inside a beautiful baby boy cradled in a mothers arms

Then loved by everyone who took a peek

Waiting for their chance

To hold the baby

Surrounded by my six nephews and my niece

Ranging in ages from an infant to thirty five

Non stop conversation whereever you sit

Most of all family and friends joined in many ways

Enjoying a piece of sweetness

Making me wish this was every day

Michael-Milec Sometimes it's nice to just watch and enjoy the people around you. I am happy to see you had a good day also. Sports bring out all the physical action when our bodies are rest. It is so much easier to think than do. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a great night.

DDE We all have so many good times to share and some how they get pushed aside while we read the news or see life unfolding in front of us.Thank you for sharing and caring

I enjoyed this Eighteen Ways To Happiness. Being happy is a choice we make. It's important not to ignore those things that bring a smile to our face. Mine would be chocolate. :)

Sounds like a good time was had by all and you made me so hungry. My cat Sid has found one way to happiness these cold days. He fills his belly and then sleeps right alongside the heater that we keep turned on to regulate the temp in the bedroom. He's happy for sure.

Gypsy Rose Lee I loved seeing everyone happy. In a world filled with uncertainty it is so nice when people get along. I wonder if you ate turkey anyway. Thank you for reading and commenting.

annart I wish I could of known. I could of sent you some leftovers. I love eating a little of everything and the second day doing it again. The best part is we don't have to cook. To often in life we are racing around going here or there. It is hard to get everyone together. Thank you for reading and sharing.
