What a Great Turkey Day

We have had a wonderful Thanksgiving...so far.  We still have lots of days left with Erik's family and I can only imagine what we are going to get into next!  We started our holiday serving dinner with the Go Lucy Go Foundation at LeBonheur.  We served over 150 meals to families who were spending their holiday in the hospital.  I love meeting the families and hearing their stories.  It's also nice just to be able to drop a meal off at patient's room and know that you are silently helping make someone's night a little brighter.  Our work at LeBonheur is not about us personally, but rather about the efforts of people all over the country (and world) who have donated money to help our foundation succeed.  Thank you all for allowing us to do what we do.

Dr. C and Dr. D (husband and wife dynamic duo) helped served dinner and led the children all night.  It was so heart warming watching these amazingly talented doctors become servants for an evening.  

These precious Girl Scouts brought a huge load of items for the Go Lucy Go Foundation Food Bank. Thank you girls!!

Thanksgiving day we celebrated with my side of the family.  As always we had a huge crowd and way too much food.  I love the time I get to spend with my family.  The older I get the more I realize how precious this time together actually is.  

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to you all!

p.s.--this is what my house looked like all day and night the 2 days prior to Thanksgiving.  I loved every minute of it!

  3. Your house looked like it was as full of good times as mine was with the grandkids in to visit me and my mom. Blog when you can - those kids and Life is far more important than a post every day. Today I hope you can feel the joy - Becky in NC
