A Very Boggs Thanksgiving!

Saturday was the big day for Thanksgiving dinner for the Boggs family. Since all the children married off, Mom has often had her dinner sometime other than Thanksgiving Day so that we could spend time with our spouse and their families on Thursday. 

Kelly Jo, Odie and I are not usually home at Thanksgiving at all so this was an especially memorable year for us. We enjoyed every moment of the day! To be a part of this evening was a treat, the meal was tremendous, the camaraderie was terrific and the laughs will be treasured for a very long time.

Dad and Mom host a lot of our family get-togethers at their barn and everyone loves it. It is a great place to gather, eat and have fun. However, with colder weather the barn is out of the question so we often rent the fellowship hall at Dodds church for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

That has been very handy for us since we have been parked within 75 feet of the front door for the last several years when we are home. Now we are right next door at the Lazy OD Ranch so its still very convenient for us. It is nice that we have lots of room for the meal and for fun and games too.

Boggs people always have plenty of finger foods to eat while real food is on its way!

Like most families we have a large iPhone contingent in the Boggs family. It turns out that we had some very early adapters to iPhones in our family.

Check this out!

Even Android people can admit this is cool!

That was our Thanksgiving and what a great evening it was. Thanks for joining us.

Weekend Woundup and Weview November 30

Our Thanksgiving weekend was action packed with family, food, fun and fellowship. We already posted about Thanksgiving dinner at the Morgan's on Thursday. Saturday afternoon we had our Boggs Thanksgiving dinner. We had a great time. I hope to post pictures of the dinner tomorrow.

Sunday morning I was scheduled to preach at Dodds (right next door to the Lazy OD Ranch). I sure appreciate Pastor Kelly Rogers making us feel so welcome whenever we are in town. We also had several family members in service that we do not get to see very often. That was good too.

After church Sunday morning several of us ventured down to Lebanon to drink a little salsa at Acapulco. 

It was very good as usual. I was going to snap a group picture outside but it was a little too chilly to be standing around for posing for pictures.

Sunday evening we went to home church at Dryden Rd. Our Pastor was gone preaching so our associate Pastor, Bro. Gary Lee was running the service and did and excellent job as usual. It was a super treat to see everyone and we are looking forward to being there Tuesday for our Planning and Vision Service for City Reach Dayton. That is a normal service night for Dryden Rd. but I hope we have a good representation for the Dayton area churches.

It was also a special treat to get to see Bro. Dennis and Sis. Lynn Heath and their children. Sis. Lynn is originally from this area and they were based in Ohio for years as evangelists. I suppose they were here visiting family and Bro. Dennis preached tonight at Dryden Rd. He preached a tremendous message on Faith and it certainly built mine. If the response in the altar was any indication I would say the sermon helped lots of others too.

Bro. Jeff Roberts sent these last two pictures to us. Thanks Bro. Jeff.

Looks like KJ is taking over!

That pretty much wraps up our weekend. Thanks for reading.
