The day is nearly over and all are STUFFED!  It was supposedly the coldest Thanksgiving in 80 years here in the valley of the sun.  Even so, this was a wonderful day and I am so thankful for my neighbors Wayne and Judy and their dog Frosty for inviting us into their home to share the Holiday.

 Wayne & Judy's house

This year was especially nice for dad and I since my baby brother flew in from Indiana to surprise us and spend Thanksgiving with us.  

 That's Kurt, my BIG baby brother, asleep in the recliner after an awesome feast.  Wayne is in the other recliner and check out Frosty, their dog, passed out behind Kurt's chair!!

Dad is passed out on the couch in a 'break neck' position!

This is the fifth winter dad and I have spent in Arizona.  The holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas are difficult since our family is too far away.   I am so grateful that my brother bestowed his special visit on us this year and it will be a Thanksgiving I will always remember 'thanks' to him and wonderful friends. 

I hope all of my Blog friends had a special day with their families and friends too!
