Thankful Thursday June 24, 2021, Our Father's Day Table 2021


You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress,
 my God on whom I can rely.   Psalm 59:17
 


Greetings Sweet Friends

Welcome to Summer,

Since it officially arrived on Monday.


Hope all the Dads at your house had a Wonderful

Father's Day, and that yall did a good job of spoiling

them for the day. Tried my best over here!!  lol


Here is our Father's Day Table for this year,  it all

started with this cute gift bag and these typical picnic

looking plates and napkins I found at the dollar tree.

Remember I told you about it last week.





Just added a blue apron, A grill towel that was a gift
from the kids a few years ago, some kitchen utensils, an
 oven mitt, bar-be-cue sauce, candles, and some stars, 
and some kabob skewers a timer, and a small flag decal
 on the opposite side.  Also had to add some boxes
 and tissue paper inside the bag so it would stay open....lol
 and added the things in where they looked good.
Also wound up using a table top corn hole game
to fill in some empty space.
Then used the paper plates and napkins to complete
the look,  also rolled the silverware in the napkins,
and rolled them and put them in the glasses.  I used
normal silverware, glasses and bowls for salad.
Our menu was filet mignon, baked potatoes, salad,
 garlic bread and banana pudding, and it was
all yummy if I do say so myself.  Course, our
Master Griller did the meat.....lol







and here we are..............My Sweet Hubby Jim, and Our Son Scott and our Granddaughter, Brooklyn.  We actually remembered
to take some pictures for a change.






and here's the rest of the family that was here......My Sister-in-law Susan and Granddaughter dog Lola.  Unfortunately, Our Daughter DeeAnna, Son-Son in Love, Jerry , and Grandson dog Lola couldn't be here, but the spoiled their Dad from afar.







So on with my Thankfuls.............



#1
Thankful for a surprise visit from a long time friend.
He is the husband of my dear friend who passed away
from cancer back the end of February.  It was great to
see him.  He has lost about 10 pds, and you can tell
he is still deep in grieve but think it is neat that he
decided to come to Florida to visit all his friends
and relatives. Cause think he was getting pretty
lonely.  So he spent the day and night and left
on Sat. afternoon for the home of other friends.


#2
Thankful again for the Lasagna my neighbor sent over
last week, as we wound up having that for dinner when
Randy was here.  Just had to throw together a salad
and bread and make his bed and we were good to go! 






#3
Thankful that I was able to get all the things done
for Father's day that needed to be done on Saturday.
afternoon and evening.  It would have been okay if
I didn't but I was pleased that I could. as I wanted
it to be nice for our Dads.


#4
Thankful that my Son and lil darling could be with
us for Father's Day.  So that made my hubby and
Son happy.




#5
Thankful for the good time we all had as
a family.  Played some Sorry and also
the wii.....and of course, did some eating
and chatting............lol




#6 and 7
Thankful that we decided to go look for furniture
again, and thankful we have finally found what we are
 looking for, and so glad we waited, cause the price 
was much better than what we found before, and
we wound up delaying it cause we weren't totally
sure about it......
Anyway think it was a divine delay, as it turned out
 better.............The new sofa also has a manual reclining
 sofa and love seat. All the others have to be plugged
 in or you have to have a battery pack for them, 
which we were not sure how well those work.  We
won't get it until some time in September tho, which
 we weren't really surprised by.








#8

 So Thankful for my hubby and what a good and kind

 Dad and hubby he is..........We are so blessed and thankful

 for the man that he is...........





#9
Thankful for my Son as well, he has turned out to be
 a really great Dad too.  Lil darling adores him and
 her Grampy.  And of course, he is a good Son too.
He and hubby are well loved men!









#10
Thankful that hubby had a big breakthrough
on a problem he was having with our website.
Problem fixed...........yippee.....


#11
Thankful that I decided to do a little research
on the company that makes the furniture we
were about to buy.  We saw many places where
they had bad reviews and a few people said
don't walk run away from it......so disappointing
as it is.....we are grateful that we checked and
didn't waste our money.  I have decided to see
 if we can find a good upholsterer and go in
that direction.........so will see! 







#12
Thankful for a wonderful day with lil darling
today.  and Thankful to hear she loves this
song that was taught to her by her music 
teacher at school, That used to go to our
church and taught my Daughter in the 
Youth choir.  It just doesn't seem like a
song an 8 yr. old would like, but she 
knows a lot of the words and like to
 see the lyrics so she can sing along. 
 That just so blessed my heart.









Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.




Thanks for coming by...............







Keep your light shining brightly,


Love, Hugs and Special
Summer Blessings,

Nellie

What a fun and festive table! You do such a great job putting a decorative table together. I love the family picture. I see vestiges of the teenage Scott I knew in the man that he has become. Handsome guy he is! And Brooklyn---what a cutie! And how awesome that she loves "In Christ Alone." And she was taught that by a teacher in public school? It's surprising that even a Christian teacher would be able to get away with that in public school. The youth choir at DAC in Deanna's day was SO fantastic.
I don't think I told you---like you, I will be having a granddaughter! Yep, Gabrielle found out about a month ago that "it's a girl." Her name will be Audrey Grace. Only 3 more months to go until she makes her arrival.

Love and hugs,
Patti

Hi Patti,
Great to hear from you hon and Thanks for all your sweet comments. Actually, it wasn't a public school teacher, she goes to a christian school part time, and is home schooled part time, and their music teacher is Mrs. Anderson, the same teacher who did the youth choir at DAC way back when your were there.
So Gabrielle is having a girl, oh my, you are gonna have such fun with that....I have loved picking out all those girl clothes and I am sure you will too. lol Love her name....my Mom's name was Audrey and Grace goes beautifully with that name. So how is Gabrielle feeling these days? Hope she is doing well....well, you have some exciting times ahead of you, and being
a Grandmother is way more fun that being a Mother, altho, that was great too. lol
Have a good week ahead, and thanks for coming by.
Love and Blessings,
Nellie
