giving thanks

It was a quieter Thanksgiving. Simply everyone who lives at home (and Madi of course).

Exercising Covid caution, Ben and Sammie and Fritzie made dinner at their home. Still, we all gathered for a Thanksgiving walk.

We’ve always been a family who walks and hikes and picnics. Yet, this year, our outdoor adventures became our second home, our church, our wide-open, blue-sky refuge from the stresses of the pandemic.

Truly, who can be stressed when looking at this face?

Sometimes it’s just better to be carried.

Last minute prep…

We meant to cut back on pies, still, we ended up with 13.

Grateful. Just so grateful.

    Our family needs MORE pies. Might you share the recipe for the chocolate pie Mary is holding in the first photo?
