"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Frye Family Thanksgiving

We always look forward to Thanksgiving at my Aunt and Uncle's house in Ocala. My Aunt Kim decorates their home for fall so beautifully, it could be in a magazine! The weather was perfect for Thanksgiving dinner outside. The food was simply delicious! It wouldn't be a Frye Thanksgiving without Thanksgiving dinner games! This year everyone chose 3 corn kernels. If you chose a red one, you had to kiss someone, if you chose a green one, you had to hug someone, and if you chose a yellow one, you had to say something you were thankful for. Of course there was much laughter as each person revealed their chosen colors, but the sweetest part of this game were my adorable grandparents...Carson loved sitting at the kids table, drinking lemonade out of his turkey cup, and eating macaroni and cheese! After dinner, the girls went through the Black Friday ads. Jamie, Brooke, and I mapped out our shopping plan! Tanner loved playing with Snickers! We had a great time sitting around the fire in the backyard and visiting. My Aunt Nancy and Uncle Alan came down from Illinois. It was great spending time with them! Before dessert, we had to walk off being so full from Thanksgiving dinner. The kids rode their bikes. And Carson got a piggy back ride from Uncle Jacob. After our walk and dessert, we had a performance from our little Indians! Carson and Hannah learned the cutest song at preschool called "Ted the Turkey"! They performed their song for everyone! Our little indian TT... Happy Thanksgiving!
