From our snowy storm-messed yard in Washington…(where Winston LOVES traipsing through the snow and having outdoor adventures, even though he is 15 and a half years old!)

Happy Thanksgiving from Winston and our family to you and yours!

I’m so thankful for all of you, you give me reasons to be thankful every day.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving to you Melissa and to your family including that adorable Wilson. We’ve seen in the news that Washington has been hit hard with snow lately. We drove through Washington this summer on our way home from Alaska. Love your blog!

  6. Winston is adorable all dressed up in his cute sweater; love it. I wanted to stop by and wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving Melissa. You are such a kind and loving person and I always enjoy stopping by to say hi.

    Blessings and love,

  7. Oh, I love him! Happy Thanksgiving!

    ok if it holds off just a bit longer.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. Happy Thanksgiving, Melissa! Winston is adorable!!! How sweet! Hoping you enjoy your snow covered Thanksgiving today.

  11. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!

  12. We have a Winston too! He’s a Lhasa Apso and cute as a button, although he’d never stand for wearing a sweater! Love your blog. Happy Thanksgiving!

  13. I’m so thankful that we have NO snow here in Kyiv! (It’s shocking, really, but life is so much easier without it!) Blessings to you!

  14. I would love to see more Winston on the blog! He is such a little cutie. Happy Thanksgiving, Melissa.

    Something tells me Winston loves Thanksgiving, too! And, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but a little snow wouldn’t be so bad, either. (“little,” mind you)!

    May you and yours find the presence of God as you celebrate this day of humble gratitude.

  16. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well, including Winston – what a cutie! I have two mini dachshunds who have a hard enough time in our Florida winters getting outside to do their business. Way to go Winston – you’re amazing!

  17. That Winston is one cute dog!

    Have a delightful day!

  18. Winston, You are doing well old man!!
    Melissa, (I love westies!) Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours today. I am thankful to have met you IRL this past October.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Melissa!

  20. I love Winston in his sweater! So sweet! Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  21. Happy American Thanksgiving! (Being in Canada, our Canadian Thanksgiving was last month, closer to our earlier harvest time.)

    I can’t believe how adorable your dog is. I looked at the picture and though “what an adorable middle-aged westie” … then I saw 15 1/2, and rubbed my eyes, read it again and was floored. You’re so lucky to have such a good looking dog who’s been with you so long. :)

    Enjoy your dinner today!

  22. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your dear ones today! When I count the blessings of friendships dear to my heart, you are on my list. You always inspire me and help lift my heart to believe I can see the fulfillment of the dreams for my home.

  23. Happy Thanksgiving! I love Westies! I’m definitely thankful for Westies!

  24. Jessica Engel says:

    Is Winston a Westie? He is ADORABLE! We have a Westie, Sammy- he too loves the snow but would never be so willing to wear the sweater :) Happy Thanksgiving!

  25. The snow is gorgeous!!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
    Thankful for you! :)

  26. Winston is so adorable!!!!!!!! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving. :D

  27. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family….snow and all. =)
    cute picture of your little doggie.

  28. Melissa,
    What a beautiful winter-wonderland! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  29. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!
    Snow?!?! Yikes!
    Stay warm and safe!
    And Winston doesn’t look a day over 2 1/2!
    P.S. I am excited about this next part of the season, aren’t you?

  30. Happy Thanksgiving. Winston looks ready for the Christmas season all ready.

  33. Happy Thanksgiving to you too, We have a little dog like that and he loves when it snows

  34. Nothing better than a dog in a sweater in the snow!!!! Love it!!

  35. Chrissy S. says:

    What a sweet Winston! We have a new-to-us Westie (he’s 8 years old) and I’m wondering what to do when it gets cold here. How cold is it when you put a sweater on Winston? And does he need those little bootie things for walks outside?? Silly questions I know but we’ve never had a small dog in such a cold place!

  36. How stinkin cute!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-) Love you!

  37. He is precious! happy to see you are enjoying the wonderful weekend Melissa :) xo
