Happy Thanksgiving!

I know you all are busy getting your tables set too, and I wish I could sit you all down at mine. Crazy isn’t it? I decided to go busy rather than elegant because it’s Thanksgiving, and we are so grateful for all God’s crazy blessings on our family. The left has no chairs because there is a long bench pulled up on that side which will seat a bunch of kids. And the two highchairs are not in the picture either. We are actually down in numbers because Bekah is cooking up a Merkle Thanksgiving at her house, and she will post up a picture for you as well. I am thinking her table will be more on the elegant side. Well, I must get back and figure out the wine glasses. Tomorrow is kitchen day….Heather’s bringing her plum port molded jello and her spinach dip and veggie tray….Rachel’s making rolls and pies….I’ve got a couple of turkeys to pop in the oven and ten pounds of potatoes for Doug to peel (smile) and a few more odds and ends. May God richly bless all your tables and the faces around them!

  3. We don’t traditionally celebrate thanksgiving in Australia, but i came on here today to say thank you for your encouraging posts, and Rachel especially, your posts and book. I just pulled it out again after coming to the end of myself today with my 5 week old and 20 month old. So thankful to Jesus for his forgiveness today, how inspired I am, thanks for pointing me back to Him in your book. That first chapter ‘in the rock tumbler’ oh how i needed that today.
    He is so good!
    hebrews 12: 18 You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; 19 to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, 20 because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.”[c] 21 The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”[d]

    22 But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.


  4. So special to see this, Nancy. Blessings on your table, all your people and your Thanksgiving celebration!

  5. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. If you ever have time to educate the ignorant, I’d love to know how you use your side plates in the position you’ve placed them. (I understand that Americans have different table habits than we Brits and Aussies.)Thanks. Your table looks fabulous.

  6. Hi Ellen,
    About those side plates on my table. They are salad plates. We don’t have room on the table for a bread plate too, so I just use a salad plate for both salad and bread. Jello salad is standard fare at most American Thanksgiving dinners, and it’s a mess to have your red jello melting all over the mashed potatoes and making the gravy pink. So, the salad plate is efficient. Then it’s just the roll that is pink.


  7. That table looks wonderful! Would it be possible to get the recipe for Heather’s plum port molded jello? Sounds delicious!
