BRRRRR !!!! Ice on the water buckets for the first time this season sent shivers through the animals when they met the cold winds in the upper 20's temps this morning.
Church was good today as we had the Lord's Supper to remind us of the thankfulness we need to feel this Thanksgiving season.
After church we had a big pot of chili and a cake of fresh cornbread waiting . #1 son's family, #2 son and Aa's family all made to it to have lunch with us.
The chili hit the spot on a cold windy day.
After everyone left hubbie watched a nascar race on TV and I put away some laundry then rested.
We did chores a little early as hubbie is going back to church to help with the community Thanksgiving service that is happening tonight at the Bible College across the street from our church.Since our interim pastor is the president of the Bible College we try to help out over there anytime we can.
While hubbie was gone I gathered all my baking supplies to do what I always have to ask forgiveness for each year and that is bake cakes on this Sunday night. With all the orders for Tuesday at market I need to get a head start on tomorrow .
I baked 18 caramel cakes tonight and iced the 6 caramels left over from Friday's baking. Whew not my regular way of spending Sunday evening !!!
At least by getting started early I was finished with all this before 9:30.
Hubbie decided with the wind still howling outside this wouldn't be a good night for our first wood stove fire. We'll just let the heat pump run tonight $$$$$$$ !!
Finishing up the November decade photos tonight with November 2006.  I had a new photograph subject that month !!!! 
G-son was one month old on the 16th.
Daddy was proud to have a son !!!

Three generations !!!!
Mommy was proud of her son !!!
Aunt T gave g-son his first Thanksgiving meal !!!!

Thankful that the news on the fire tonight is good especially with these terrible winds. The fire has not grown any in the last 24 hours and is now 45 % contained. These firefighters are doing a great job.

Tonight I am very grateful for folks who take their jobs seriously and go beyond the call of duty with humility and concern for their fellow man. Some of the stories that are coming out of this fire season and the fire fighters actions are very touching. One of them was when one of the evacuees got back home yesterday and found that a caring firefighter had taken down their American flag and rolled it up placing it behind their storm door for protection from the fire.
God Bless and Good Night.
