Morgan Family Thanksgiving 2022 In Pictures

Hey Friends,

Welcome to another Thursday post with Odie. Today we are looking back on last Thursday. In the United States, it was the official Thanksgiving Day of 2022. 

I spent the day with Mom's side of the family. It is always a party to remember when the Morgan family gets together!

The day started with a visit from Uncle Buster. He comes over every year on Thanksgiving morning to visit with Papaw. Gran makes yummy hot apple cider. It is a fun way to kick off the day,

This was Karleigh Jo's first Thanksgiving. She had a bottle as an appetizer while we waited for dinner time.

The Daniels Family

The future, Mr. and Mrs. Yager. Congrats to Trever and Kayla on your engagement.

The accidental outfit twins, right down to the Snoopy socks.

I love some Karleigh Jo snuggles!

Dinner time.

After dinner recovery.

The weather was beautiful! We were able to be outside for a little while.

I thank God for giving me a fabulous family! This year has been filled with the up and downs of life. The blessings from God far outweigh the rough days!

That wraps up The Morgan Family Thanksgiving 2022! Thanks for visiting with me today.

A Word For Wednesday-The Ultimate Safety Net

It is time again for A Word For Wednesday. This morning, I am posting A Word for Wednesday on our YouTube Channel. Please give it a listen and leave us a comment here or on YouTube.

I am reading today from
Deuteronomy 33:27 The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.

The eternal God with His everlasting arms underneath of me! That is the ultimate safety net! Are you in a pinch? Are you in bind? Are you on the edge of the cliff?
The eternal God is near you, friend!

Thank you for dropping in today.

Weekend Dispatch 11/29/22

Hey Friends,

This is Odie reporting in from my beach cottage. I hope you are having a wonderful week. I am doing good this week. Yesterday I tried to recover from the busy weekend. 

I hope you enjoy my pictures from the 2022 Boggs Thanksgiving. I plan to share The Morgan Thanksgiving pictures on Thursday.

Yesterday I sat down and compiled all of the pictures from Thanksgiving week that I have not shared yet. I found pictures from Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, It is time for a Weekend Dispatch Odie style.

Tuesday afternoon, I enjoyed lunch at Alcapulso with Mamaw and Papaw.

Tuesday night, it was time for church at Dryden Road Pentecostal Church.

Bro. Andrew Blevins

Kids Choir

Bryson Hoskins

Bro. Jared Burris

Bro. Cliff Burris, singing Midnight Cry. My pastor described Bro. Cliff's excellent singing well. Bro. Bennie said it was addictive. You just want to keep hearing him sing.

Bro. J.C. Burris preaching.

Pastor B.D. Sutherland

Tuesday night was also bittersweet. It was my last time to see the visiting Burris crew. Friday, they left us to head back to California, California, and Georgia.

I had to get a few final pictures from this visit. This family has been like family to us for years. I am always grateful to spend time with them!

This is me with Grandma Cindy.

This is J.C. Burris and Me.

I went Black Friday shopping with my Gran, cousins, Aunt Jeanna and Aunt Kim. We had a fun day together, including lunch at Olive Garden.

My Papaw Danny and my cousin Joey fished while we shopped! We enjoyed the fruit of their successful fishing day for dinner. Thanks to Uncle Danny for frying up the fresh crappie! It was so delicious! 

Then it was time to decorate my grandparent's home for Christmas! It is fun to turn it into a family affair with the member of our family that can come.

Saturday, my grandparents brought me home. 

First, we enjoyed lunch at Chilis.

Then we had a fun shopping trip at Sam's Club. We topped it off with Sam's ice cream.

Sunday was devoted to church at Dryden Road Pentecostal Church.

That wraps up my weekend. It was busy and exciting. Thanks to the Stancells for giving me rides to church. I have so much fun hanging out with them!
