Giving thanks (late)

I'm grateful for being here, for being able to think, for being able to see, for being able to taste, for appreciating love -- for knowing that it exists in a world so rife with vulgarity, with brutality and violence, and yet love exists.  I'm grateful to know that it exists.  
-- Dr. Maya Angelou

This year we celebrated Thanksgiving in Dallas.  It was a lovely day full of family, friends and delicious culinary delights.  

Sherry with her delicious apple crustada.  
Jamesy and Erik watching the parade.
Carving the turkey.
Perfectly delicious rolls.  
Reesy getting started.  
Thanksgiving means pumpkin pie.
Stevie's peas.  

I have much to be thankful for this year:  a loving and unique family, new friends, old friends, stability, new adventures, new additions, loss, love, hope, health, challenges, work, time to name a few.  I hope to have a thankful heart all year round.

What a fun Thanksgiving. Yesterday I was dubbing some VHS tapes to DVD, and I found some clips from our days at BYU Newsnet/Daily News. "It's true!" It was hilarious.
