    So, Thanksgiving Dinner yesterday was a big hit. Almost TOO good. Nobody wanted to go home.

    George seemed happy, relaxed, was teasing and laughing with her kids --- ZERO drama.

    Mrs CP went back to work this morning, and I'm doing dishes and cleaning up.

    Oh, and there is a new family in our Church with the cutest kids - they have no family in Texas, so they had Thanksgiving Dinner with us - and these kids call me "Papa".

    • The young lady to the far left is Heidi - my oldest granddaughter who, at 21 years of age, rose up through the ranks of Walgreen from cashier to assistant store manager and pharmacy tech in just 2 years.
    • The gentleman on the couch is the father of the children - he is our assistant district attorney.
    • The little fella is Clarke - EVERY Sunday without fail he wants me to take him up to the front of the sanctuary at the end of the Service where I pick him up overlooking the baptistry so he can look at the Cross in the stained glass window, and tell me all the colors.
    • The little lady is Morgan - who started off calling me "Mister Pastor", but has since started calling me "Papa", because my grandkids do.
    • The foot at the front of the couch on the right belongs to my son-in-law who is currently the SWAT commander of our local PD, currently a sergeant, soon to be promoted directly to captain.
    • I think the toes on the red recliner belong to the children's mommy, who "works from home" for a large furniture conglomerate and goes to trade shows in North Carolina several times a year where she routinely gets photographed with really important people like Mike Rowe, the Property Brothers, Paula Dean...


    When I first came to this Church, Mrs CP and I were "the youth department" --- since then, we've had a number of younger families join.

    Mrs CP was putting the finishing touches on the meal, and does not like to be photographed.
    Jake was staring out the window, at John, our neighbor.

    Also not pictured are Jenny (my youngest daughter), George (the object of this thread), Ryleigh Jo (my youngest granddaughter), SpongeBob (my grandson), and Karleigh Jo (Ryleigh Jo's best friend).
