Thanksgiving Day


This Thanksgiving was quiet.  


Our usual full house was empty, with just a shivering pup under an electric blanket.  

"Ugh!  This hairdo is not cutting it.  I'm freeeezing."

We met a few family members at the Ponderosa; oh how I appreciate the Ponderosa for cooking a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner for us to enjoy!

We sat at a table in the back and it was nice.

Me: Happy Thanksgiving, Marissa.

Marissa: (excited and even shaking)   Grammy,  tomorrow Santa is going to sneak into my house and hide presents for me under the Christmas tree.  

Me: Umm, I think Mommy meant next month...  after Thanksgiving Rissie.


 She told Santa over and over again,  "please bring me a Bouncing Baby Babbles..."  


And then the real Santa showed up... 


"Santa, can you bring me a bouncing baby babbles?"
Her conversation with Santa was priceless!  She gave him a big hug before he went to have his dinner at the back of the restaurant.

It was a good day.  A quiet day.
