Thanks!

Thanksgiving is an American holiday that is very much centered on family and friends gathering around the dinner table and enjoying each other's company. Other than groceries it is the most non-commercial of all the holidays. For the Taggarts it was awesome.

Tim took the week off work and helped around the house. The family caught a movie mid-week and prepared for Thursday. Gloria went up to Logan on Wednesday to help prepare the food etc. Even helped the grandkids make a little Christmas tree.

On Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, we gathered in the afternoon at an LDS chapel in Logan with the whole family. It worked out great. The building was accessable for Joseph, there was lots of room for games and food tables etc. All of Gloria's side of the family (the Shaffers) gathered together for food fun and frolic. Joseph's friend Jaclyn Johnson from Houston went up with us. His friend Mike who comes to the house and does physical therapy twice a week met us there with his two sisters and enjoyed the day as well. We all had a great time.

After dinner we enjoyed bingo with M&Ms and little prizes as well as video games, basketball in the gym and boardgames. It was a great holiday.

The weekend was spent getting the house ready for Christmas, getting the tree up etc. What can one say but THANKS.
