Sleet to Sunset

The morning started early, chilly and dark.  My job was to bring ham, creamed corn and an apple pie.  B had me take her artichoke heart salad as she was tending to her Mr. B.  He had hand surgery on Wednesday on his broken finger.  He had an accident at work when a forklift tine and his finger met.  Not pretty.  Poor guy. 

That is ice on the tree limbs.  Thank goodness it didn't stick to the road.
The drive was a little over an hour to the community center in  Eufaula to be with The Hubby's family.  We kind of grew with a few extra friends added to the family dinner.  Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to include those who do not have family around to be with.  We had plenty of space and tons of food for all to share.
The masses arrived and milled around until the word was given...ready, set, eat!
Dessert time!
Oh my gosh my tummy was about to bust!  The food was delicious.
A little chit-chat with The Hubby and his nephews.  I'm sure the subject was all about hunting.
The meal was over.  The chit-chat was not at an end but the need to return home to feed Clayton made us have to get on the road.  I wasn't looking forward to the cold and rain but, wait...a peak of sun and blue skies was waiting for us to enjoy.
But first we had to clean up and load up the leftovers in The Hubby's truck.  The creamed corn was a huge hit!
The sunset was just stunning and topped off a wonderful day with family.
Happy Holidays my blogging friends and happy shopping!
