Thanksgiving Day Slide Show

During the holidays, we really miss our extended family. So I look for ways to make our Thanksgiving special--even though it is just us.

Last year, I put together a surprise slide show. Having a good many of my photos on the computer made this pretty easy. I just went back through my files for past years and pulled out some fun pictures to put in a new folder marked, Thanksgiving Slide Show. All I would have to do is click show as slide show when I was ready.

I made sure I picked some of each of my children from infant on up, and then relatives, as well as pictures that reminded us of things God had blessed us with or brought us through. It was the perfect ending to our Thanksgiving celebration.

Although the whole family enjoyed it, I think I was blessed the most, and it didn't cost a thing.

I love that idea! I am going to try to upload a video my husband did with a song he wrote. Come check it out sometime.
