    Ameryth, Thanksgiving, and Light-Chasing Dogs

    First things first; To me, Thanksgiving has nothing to do with pilgrims, but everything to do with closeness to friends & family, and celebrating a good harvest. To learn more about what really happened at the first recorded Thanksgiving, read "Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your High School History Textbook Got Wrong" by James Loewen, a former university history professor.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

    We went to a friend's house for an early Thanksgiving on Tuesday. We just got back home today after a great sleepover. It was fantastic! Magnificent food, great fun and conversation, as well as old friends and new, including a happy suprise that I should have expected, but didn't. *chuckle*
    I brought over the Thanksgiving tree, and we watched the dog attack the flashlight beam (and the flashlight too). The kids wrestled, played, ran rampant, and had the time of their lives trying to take down the elf at random intervals during our visit. Great gaming was also to be had, with much promise for future get-togethers. Littlebit seems to have found a new bestest buddy, and they played quietly and peacefully for hours.

    Thursday, we do it all again with more great friends, closer to home. *smile*

    May you and yours have a wonderful day, no matter where you are. Enjoy the family, food, friends, and more. Count your blessings, and be sure to remind those you hold dear that they are a cherished part of your life. Take a moment to wish well and send thoughts of comfort to those who are alone during this time of togetherness and sharing. Tell someone you love them on Thursday.

    Loving you!
