Thanksgiving 2016


Just what you wanted to see: Thanksgiving Dinner Pictures! But I must share a few of these. This is only some of the feast. You can see one of the pies, and also the turkey on the plate, home made stuffing (with sausage included), mashed potatoes, brussels sprouts with bacon, and string beans and mushrooms. All fresh and yummy!

And, of course, the beverage. I don't know what the Pilgrims drank, but we drank wine! There's got to be something Italian about our Thanksgiving!

As you probably already noticed, some serious baking also went on over here in these days. Not only pumpkin pies, but fresh apple pies too with homemade crust.

They're not gone yet! 

Eileen and my girls are truly amazing. I know a lot of love went into this meal, and I am so grateful for it. I never want to underestimate the tremendous blessings that God has given to me and to our family.

Thank you, Lord, for all your gifts and your mercy. Have mercy on us and on the whole world, especially those who are in need, who are suffering, who are missing loved ones, who are destitute, enslaved, in prisons, in refugee camps, in the midst of war, and those who are alone and forgotten.
