Thanksgiving Day Poem by Mama Self

This is the Red Velvet Cake I made to take to the Self's house. I will let you know how it turned out after we slice into it!!!

Thanksgiving Day

As Thanksgiving Day grows more near,
changing seasons bring much cheer.
The things we are thankful for are so clear.

Soon the turkey will be baking,
butternut squash, Mom we will be making.
Foods on the counter, little hand are reaching up and taking.

We are thankful Dad did not roast a duck.
The kids are all running a muck,
in his walker there goes my chunk .

With everyone so excited to eat,
this day is such a treat,
too bad we still have the Arizona heat.

Let us pray and bless this dinner
MMM that Costco pie looks like a winner
too bad it won’t make me thinner

With our tummies all full for the night,
don’t let us Lord lose sight
to hold all that is dear tight.

I am so thankful for all I treasure.
This year has been such a pleasure.
We love you all more than we can measure.
