Turkey Day

As I'm still working on my 1000 Gifts list, I'm calling yesterday Turkey Day, which is the main player of the day. I made much too much food, as usual. Some friends came over to help us eat it all & Rusty enjoyed the scraps!  In honor of Turkey Day, I thought I'd make a special list of the gifts I received yesterday.  Thank you, God!
