Gil and I were so happy to host Thanksgiving this year at our house for Pat and James, Gil's daughter and her husband who live in Wichita, Ks. They drove down and brought Emma, Gil's great-granddaughter with them. Emma's mom Rachel was not able to come this year because of her work schedule. However, Pat's mom Lorene also drove down from Pittsburg, Ks, to join the celebration.
We had fun visiting and just hanging out. Emma enjoyed playing with Lucky, and Lucky really enjoyed the company. It was very hot on Thanksgiving day, but a cold front came in that afternoon making the temperature drop considerably in a short time. I cooked a traditional meal and Gil took some food to three friends with whom we always share holiday meals. James took Pat and Emma shopping at Walmart at 3:30 am on black Friday and found many bargains for Christmas.
It really was a fun time for all. We are so glad they were able to join us for this holiday and we are so thankful for our family and friends.
