Thanksgiving Day: Well, Thanksgiving is upon us and I feel like I have so much to be thankful for. This is the first Thanksgiving in the new house, and the first Thanksgiving with a new baby. We have some pretty big plans this weekend, we will be going to spend Thanksgiving with my wife's side of the family. This is going to be a big event as her family is so big. I really look forward to the event, because there is so much laughter and so much fellowship that goes on. The weather is cooperating though it is cold. The weatherman hinted at a snow storm earlier in the week, but we only had a few flurries. Incidentally in Kentucky we consider anything over three inches to be a snowstorm. I baked a huge pan of yams last night and I can't wait to tear into them. I love being with friends and loved ones over the holidays, and I love watching football. I really don't know who is going to be playing today, but it doesn't matter to me at all, I hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving. I am praying that our Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors who are stationed around the world have the best Thanksgiving possible. I know how difficult it is to be a long way away from family, so I just hope that everyone remembers our Armed Forces in their prayers. We should indeed be Thankful for all that they do.
