Money Shot Monday - Church Party

(It seems I'm out of photo storage...but Money Shot Monday shall not be defeated! In the meantime, I did a facebook copy/paste hack job. You understand.)

Tonight was my thirty-second Thanksgiving of the season. Give or take.
Turkey, mashed potatoes and pecan pie...again? Walk my way, good fortune.

I hate to play Thanksgiving favorites, but I might have to anyway. This was my favorite.  Hate me.

We invited friends to our party tonight and they came. They made it even better than it already is.
We stuffed ourselves and high-fived and cooed at the baby.
Cory ate an entire portion of Pumpkin Buckle topped with brown gravy and a sprinkling of salt, believing it to be stuffing. Strange things happen when this rag-tag group gathers. (Some nights more than others.)  

These are my people. They're teaching me all about community and grace and jumping into the deep end without my noseplugs. 



  1. Shoooot. I'd play Apples to Apples with y'all.
    Did you say gravy on pumpkin? Naw, nevermind.

    I hope it is a storagespacesnafu.

  2. girl, they told me I was out of storage space today too. It must be a glitch right? I feel very stressed by the whole thing . . .

  3. I love this picture! I love your peeps. I love your pumpkin buckle and most of all... I love you.

  4. Gravy over pumpkin? I just gagged a little.
    My best Thanksgiving was one spent with friends and strangers instead of family.
    Also, I decided to write up my quick little MSM tonight - now back to that book you recommended. :)

  5. We had pumpkin chili for dinner and it was delicious! So I won't dis gravy on pumpkin buckle!

    I love your group. We are longing for that, but it seems that each week more than half of our group is unable to make it. I am discouraged by that, if I'm honest. I want community and a group to walk with.....they just seem too busy! Oh well.... All I can do is have dessert ready each week!

  6. Seems like everyone's running out of storage space. I just did the other day too. Google changed the way they do storage. Less storage for more money. What kind of Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Holiday deal is that?

    "What is Pumpkin Buckle?", asked the naive west coaster, hoping it's a regional dish and not something she's been missing out on her whole life.

  7. It's going to be finish of mine day, except before end I am reading this enormous paragraph to improve my experience.

  9. I am also out of storage! Since I'm newish to blogger, I believed it was my fault.

    What the heck is pumpkin buckle?!

  10. Strange the unexpected happens when this rag-tag group accumulates.Some nights more than others.

  11. Ha! I'll bet that pumpkin buckle with gravy was the best he'd ever had!

    After reading the comments here I believe there's a Blogger conspiracy over photo storage.

  12. No nose plugs? Whoa. Brave.

  13. I ran out of storage on Sunday. I had to purchase a storage plan for $4.95 a month. They must be on to us bloggers.

    1. See....I just said the same thing! It's a crock I tell you!!!

  14. I love those kinds of friends who you can be yourself with, even eat pumpkin buckle with gravy, and not be judged :) I also love you MSM and must get myself motivated to join in now and again.

  15. Wow, that's what I was looking for, what a stuff! existing here at this webpage, thanks admin of this web page.

  16. Okay...I'm thinking Blogspot has put the crack down on all the blogs. You are the third person to say this to me in the past two weeks AND last night as I'm cramming in all my end of year pictures to have my blog printed...It gave me the same line. I even tried to go back and delete a whole years worth of posts from 2009...Still didn't work. Hmmmm

  17. I ran out of picture space, too.
    I hate when that seems like it comes way too soon each year.
    love that you are hosting game nights and love that you are in community.....makes life grand.

  19. Wow, these ARE your people! The layers, the gray, the're so MFEO. I took my money shot with ease on Monday, I just couldn't get it on my blog. I finally resorted to photobucket...which took me hours. I'm not proud of that. I should be done with it soon, though.

    I've taken a break from baking biscuits to try to make a perfect pound cake. 'Tis the season, fa la la la la la! Also, my pants are shrinking. It's the weirdest thing.

    Happy Wednesday! :)

    1. ps, yes...fantastic beat...I couldn't agree more. ;)

  20. I ran out of picture space too but finally learned how to use Picasa to upload them to Picasa web albums at "web size" instead of full size. Then it was all happy. At least so far. I do think they just want us all to rent more storage space though.

  21. Greetings from Florida! I'm bored at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the knowledge you provide here and can't wait to take a look when I get home.
    I'm shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G .
    . Anyhow, very good blog!
