Im thankful for sooo many things it would be impossible to make a list. maybe I can just say that I am thankful for my life and everything in it that causes me joy or sustains us. And perhaps I should include, even some of the more uncomfortable things that dont bring joy, but make us stronger and bind us together. Does that cover everything? I think it does. I am thankful to God for the life hes given me and the forgiveness that he bestows on me daily for all the bad thats in me! (I know you dont see it.. but its there.. believe me!) I am thankful for inspiration, color and creativity... I am thankful for the ability to occupy myself for hours on end making silly little cute things.. that tickle me and make me giggle! I am thankful for my blogland buddies!! though you are included in the first part when I said "anything that brings me joy!"
so yesterday I baked pies, made stuffing, made some appetizers and I baby sat for torry pie in the morning. We baracaded ourselves in the kitchen and baked and laughed the hours away!
I dont need to tell you how thankful I am for this baby do I???
OMG! I love him to pieces!
So the whole family is coming for dinner tonight.. what used to be 6 of us has turned into 13! and is soon to be 15 by next summer! and I should add that I am VERY thankful that each of my children has found someone special to love, be loved by and to spend their lives with. That has been a prayer of mine since they were babies.
I think we'll have plenty of food! wanna hear what we're having??
(you have no choice.. unless you stop reading here!
We are having: Turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatos, sweet potato casserole, squash, green bean casserole, salad, rolls, cranberry sauce, shrimp cocktail, stuffed hot peppers and desserts.. pumpkin, apple and pecan pies and cheesecake! lots of yumminess.. we arent eating until about 5:30. I prefer to eat at about 3:00, but I have to share my family with other families now.. so they will visit the others first.. then come here. Then after dinner we will pack up all the desserts and head down the road to our good friends house. We get together on thanksgiving night with two other families, our closest friends and hang out. We all bring our desserts and eat a little of everything! OINK OINK!!
uh oh.. Im sorry figgy and frannie have no manners and are sitting on the table checking out the turkey! oh the little naughties! but I just love them soo..
can I add them to my list of thankful for.... well they too are included in the anything that brings me joy.. but I sure am thankful to have these little fuzzy wuzzy fluffy baby pies!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
I wish you all to have bellies full of good food and hearts full of good cheer!
