Happy Thanksgiving!

Would you know who is the greatest saint in the world: It is not he who prays most or fasts most, it is not he who gives most alms or is most eminent for temperance, chastity or justice; but it is he who is always thankful to God, who wills everything that God wills, who receives everything as an instance of God's goodness and has a heart always ready to praise God for it.   William Law


 Had Thanksgiving dinner with some friends down the street, and their extended family (about 25 of us total). Kailin made her requisite 8 dozen butter rolls - a family(s) favorite (2 pans are already in the oven). I think there were maybe 8 rolls left after dinner...

 Had counters full of food - 2 turkeys, 2 types of stuffing, 5 different veggies dishes, rough-mashed potatoes and amazing gravy, about 5 different types of jello salads(?)(!), 8 dozen rolls, etc... All delicious!

 (happy carcasses...)

 Kailin - with her adopted 'siblings' 

 (she spends a lot of time over at their house..)

Oh, and kittens!

Lovely day. Happy Thanksgiving!
