Post Thanksgiving

I hope all of my bloggy family had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your loved ones. I did the honors of hosting Thanksgiving this year and I think it's safe enough to say that it was our families best year yet! It was so nice to be surrounded by my family and my extended family. And of course, my grandchildren were there. It was just so nice to all be together again.
But it goes by so fast, doesn't it?
Anyway, I wanted to share a cute poem that was in my church newspaper. Sorry this post is a little late. But if you read the previous post, I've had computer problems due to a virus.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

'Twas the night of Thanksgiving,
But I just couldn't sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned-the dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation with all of my might.

Tossing and turning with anticipation,
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door,
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.
Gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
'Till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.

But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees....
Happy eating to all - pass the cranberries, please.
May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes 'n gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious.
May your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off of your thighs!!

Holiday blessings to each and everyone of you! Love, Anne
