Give Thanks Unto The Lord

Psalms 107:1 O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
Thanksgiving is usually a quiet time around here. We have a big meal but the rest of the weekend is spent working on projects and hanging around the house. This year, we managed to convince some family to come for a visit and the house has been anything but quiet.
We had our traditional Thanksgiving meal and it was a lot more enjoyable having someone help prepare the food and clean up. I wasn't nearly as exhausted as I usually am, even though I still managed to slip in a nap. We've been eating leftovers for days and it's been wonderful.
Henry's spent some time working on his big brother skills with his little cousin Camille. He's learning to be gentle even when excited and that sometimes, he can't be the center of attention. He'll be ready for the next sibling in no time!
Of course, we pulled Stoney out of the pasture and gave him some exercise in exchange for some grain. He always agrees when something sweet and crunchy is involved.
We built a beautiful table and benches for our kitchen! As much as I love the island, we've got a few too many people to sit around it comfortably, especially if guests are visiting. Problem solved!
The cousins, who have a family history of animal allergies, worked on not getting them by being sure to snuggle the cats. A lot.
The horses were brushed and handfed to their hearts' content...
 ...and the dogs have been running nonstop, chasing everything from tennis balls to horses to unsuspecting cats.
There are still chores to do...
...but there's still plenty of time for fun and games.
Everyone's exhausted by the end of the day but we've been having so much fun together that we start bright and early the next day with a new adventure.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
