It's often hard to believe how quickly time goes by. As our markets wrap up and Christmas is just around the corner 2010 is within our reach. Wow. It was wonderful to have an opportunity to slow this down a bit with Thanksgiving. We are constantly in thanks for God's provisions, but this day is always particularly special because it brings it all together.

This was Gabe's first Thanksgiving and for Tristan it was old hat. He eagerly awaited a turkey that still was bigger than him: ) As we continue to expand our knowledge regarding the standard treatment of animals and the obscene amount of chemicals they are injected with having a holiday with our own bird brings a smile to our faces. There is a wonderful feeling in knowing where everything on the table has come from and that there is no reason to be skeptical about what's going in you. Good food, good people, Great God. Good stuff.

Raising your Thanksgiving turkey reminds me of a movie I saw ages ago... A widowed young woman and her small kids had to move in with her sister on a farm. The kids named all the chickens. One day they came home after church to a big ol' Sunday dinner and when they saw what was on the table they started screaming, "WHO IS IT? WHO IS IT?" The mom (Sally Fields) said, "It's nobody! A man came by last week selling strangers!"
Hahah.. thought you might need that in your repitoire one of these days.
Love y'all!!
