We Were Thankful for...
1) safe travel for our daughter, son-in-law, and their two children (our grandchildren!),
2) a warm home,
3) plenty of good food,
4) good conversation and entertainment by the children(!)
5) and a quiet dog. ;-)
Sidney didn't bark when they came. That made our 4-year-old grandson very relieved and happy. Our nearly two-year-old granddaughter squealed and giggled with delight because she'd forgotten that there Was a Sidney.
Sidney... being quiet.
Ready to leave to see the lighting of the town square.
(The Friday night following Thanksgiving, the town square's Christmas lights are lit,
Santa comes to town, pony rides are given, and carolers sing.)
And "binkie" goes nearly everywhere... just in case.
