Thankful For 4 Generations

Just wanted to share some of the fun we had at Thanksgiving this year with four generations under one roof. It was our daughters idea to gather the family together which we do every Thanksgiving, but this time to do it under one roof. So we had family from the age of 10 to soon to be 97 for Thanksgiving.

We all decided that an airbnb would be the best way to go, and it was my assignment to find the perfect one that was not too far from home, but far enough. Our selection was Shepherd Lodge in Kingston, Oklahoma. From the pictures we were in love with it, and had our fingers crossed that it would live up to expectations–it did and more.

There were four generations that would be staying under the same roof for three nights. Like most people we were hoping there would be enough to entertain everyone, enough space so that we wouldn’t feel crowded and other things. There was nothing to worry about, our airbnb had everything we wanted and needed from board games, card games, pool table, ping pong, three fireplaces with two being outside, televisions in each bedroom and one in the great room plus so much more including a piano. Everything for preparing Thanksgiving dinner was there–there was even fresh ground coffee in the kitchen.

If someone had wanted to gamble there was a casino down the road, and a lake that my grandson did get to see. Take a look at a few more pictures of our four generation Thanksgiving.

Enjoy family because there is nothing better. Remember “thisisyourbestyear” and give thanks every day.

Thankful

On Sunday after church we had family dinner at home.  There was no special occasion just all of us together enjoying each other. We had so much fun. I cooked, the girls cleaned and the men well you know, they sat. It was okay though, we just enjoyed each other.

I am so thankful for “family”. They are the joys of my world. Since Thanksgiving is coming up, here is your opportunity to win an “I’m cold! (I’m calling on the Lord!) tee-shirt. Just share with us what you as women of a certain age are thankful for at this time in your life.

I will announce the winner on the Thursday after Thanksgiving. If you are the winner and I do not have your email address, I will ask you to email me at: thisisyourbestyear@gmail.com along with your size and mailing address.  Be thankful because “thisisyourbestyear”.
