The last two days have been fun and chaotic.  It has been all about family and meals, planned and unplanned.

We had the grandkids on Wednesday and we did our best to make sure they would be returned worn out so their parents could prepare for the Thanksgiving meal.  We did return them to their home half sleeping in their seats but as soon as they got home, they perked up.  We ended up eating dinner at their house and not leaving for our home til late.  So much for best laid plans.

Today was rising early to finish some of my contributions to dinner then heading over to the oldest daughter's home.  Dinner was great and company was good (our SIL's sibling and spouses).

I am thankful for the joy in the last couple of days.  I enjoy the company of my family.

And with joy comes the other side - sorrow.  Wed night we learned my husband's last remaining uncle had passed away.  That makes 3 deaths in his family in the last 6 months.

Meanwhile I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving.
