    Sounds like Thanksgiving was a special day for Lovina’s family. As with her,we had way too much food!! I am jealous..my new Buff orpington chickens won’t begin laying until February. My old hens are really slacking off. I get enough eggs for us,but don’t have any to sell right now,so I have disappointed customers! I imagine Lovina is happy to see her girls sewing. Hope it will lighten her load. I am glad to hear of Loretta’s improvement..may it continue! The cookies look great,I bet they’re good..but isn’t everything with chocolate and peanut butter?

    Your Thanksgiving celebration sounds wonderful. I miss the days of a big family get-together. This year there were just five of us. Still, we have so much to be thankful for!

    I have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe – but these sound so good I think I’ll give it a try.

    Your Thanksgiving day sounds like it was a wonderful time. We all gather at my mom’s for dinner. Each year the turkey needs to be a bit bigger. This year was 26 pounds! I believe we will have to start cooking 2 if the family keeps growing.

    I am glad to hear of Loretta’s progress. I pray that the Lord will strengthen her and may the therapy help keep things in a positive light.
