Thankful Thursday

For this Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for my friends Joanna, Justus and Sarah. I met Joanna, Sarah and their dad at the Vision Forum Father/Daughter retreat, and we discovered we lived close to each other! Last Saturday my family had their family over and we had a great time!

Here are Sarah and Joanna:

Here are all of our parents gathered around the table after enjoying grilled chicken:
AND....(drumroll please)....Here is the STRAWBERRY THINGY.

Strawberry Thingy is a delicious dessert made with Strawberries and jello, whipped topping and cream cheese, and crushed pretzels for the crust. It's absolutely scrumdiddlyumptious!! :) NOTE: TO FIND THE RECIPE, GO TO "THINKING ON THESE THINGS" LOCATED ON MY BLOG LIST. :)
And here is the chef, Miss Joanna, pictured with a square of her delectable creation:
Here you can see the layers of Strawberry thingy...
Joanna and I enjoying our Strawberry Thingy...(I am trying not to blink so I look rather odd)

Joanna, Sarah and I get along SO well, which is easy since they are so sweet and nice, and what is great is that our brothers love hanging out together too! Pictured here are (L to R) Steven, Justus and Mark standing in front of my bookcase.

I had such a wonderful time with Joanna and Sarah! I am very very thankful that I met them and their family!
