My belt is already unbuckled.

**notice anything funny about this "First Thanksgiving Scene?"

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have really been looking forward to Turkey Time this year. 
Luckily, we're stretching this holiday over 3 days....

Between today and Saturday, we will be:
Delivering Thanksgiving Meals-on-Wheel to the homebound & needy in our community.
&
Enjoying time with family.
&
Eating ham and turkey and potatoes and corn and green beans and cranberries and more.
&
Watching the Iron Bowl.
{Roll Tide!}

Be thankful for your many blessings
AND 
Eat 'til your heart's content. 

Perhaps you are on the same holiday diet as me? 
You know, the one where you eat everything and hope for a miracle.
Ha.

**here's a closer look at 3 of your favorite pilgrims:
