Happy Thanksgiving!

We actually celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday, since the Big Kid has to work today. So while everyone is cooking and celebrating today, we are looking forward to spending a day in our pj's, eating leftovers and watching movies (currently, the girls are awaiting the appearance of Santa at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade on TV).

Earlier this week, the Big Kid and I volunteered at the local food pantry's annual Thanksgiving food distribution which takes place at our daughter's school. New reports say that they provided a Thanksgiving meal for over 400 families. The Big Kid and I came away from that with a new sense of appreciation for what we have, and look forward to volunteering in the future.

This year, I am thankful for:

  • My family and friends. You guys have helped in so many ways over the past years, thank you!
  • Our health - overall everyone is healthy. We've had bumps and bruises over the years, but nothing that is long lasting.
  • Insurance - although we never expect to need you - those unexpected accidents would be a major set-back without it.
  • That we have a roof over our heads and food in our pantry.
  • That we may not have everything we want, but we have everything we need.
  • Love.
  • That the Big Kid is finished with school and we are moving forward.
  • My three wonderful, funny, amazing daughter's. When ever I'm having a bad day, you make my life a happier, brighter place to live in.

I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving. Give thanks to what you have and those who love you.

Congratulations to the winners of my Shutterfly giveaway - Maureen B., Heather and Annette. You should have received your prize in an email yesterday.
