Happy Thanksgiving.....

.....from our table to yours! May you & your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with lots of memories to scrapbook & lots of food in your tummies :)
After the turkey, be sure to enjoy some Apple or.....
Pumpkin Pie :)

Shawn is expected to be here in about an hour, the turkey is cooking away in the oven, the aroma is in the air, the table is set & the house is clean :)

Today, I am thankful for:
My wonderful husband of almost 19 years!
My 2 kids......although they test me at times, I couldn't imagine my life without them!
My granddaughter.....although I don't see her very often, I know that she'll always be a part of me.
My parents, for bringing me into this world & raising me the best that they could.
My sisters, although we don't always see eye-to-eye, we know we'll always be there for each other.
My mutts, who truly are a part of our family.
Our home.
Jim's job & my job.
For losing 51.2 pounds.....and hoping I don't gain any of it back today!
My health, even though I'm still having pain in my shoulder, arm & hand, I'm hoping that they find a solution to it next week when I have the MRI done.
For food on our table, clothes on our backs & shelter over our heads.
I truly am thankful!

Tomorrow (pain pending), Jim & I are planning to go out & battle the crowds to do a little Black Friday shopping before I have to go to work. I'm not too impressed with any of the sale ads for tomorrow, but I figured we'd go anyway as it's a 'tradition' for us.

Have a very safe & Happy Thanksgiving!
Benita

Happy Thanksgiving Benita!! Praying for Jim's job! Please keep me posted on that ok??

We too were looking at the Black Friday ads and thought the same thing as you. I've already found and purchased Elena's Wii, so I'm a happy camper :) No where else had a superfantastic price on it!
