I absolutely LOVE Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for. My God, my family, my fiance (I'm torn, is that one e or two?), my friends, my health, my job, my safety, my home, my car, my pets. I could seriously go on FOREVER. I am truly, truly thankful.
I wish I would have taken more pictures than I did this year, but I just wasn't in picture-snapping mode, oh well - here's some of what I do have:
I forgot to mention that I'm thankful gas prices are going down.
I filled my SUV up for 20 bucks, can't beat that!!
I'm also thankful for the water! It is so true what they say, "There's NO PLACE LIKE HOME."
I feel so "at home" right by the water!
My sister's husband, Jimmy, is seriously one of the best cooks around.
This man can bring it! He did a fabulous job, yet again!
He needs a stand mixer, but I don't think he wants one as bad as I DO!
I had a lot of good, quality nephew time. I really enjoyed playing Legos with Brayden.
He is so cute and sweet and funny, I just can't get enough!
This was my creation. Brayden said it was "decent."
I think it's pretty awesome for someone who hasn't touched Legos in like 20 years, what do you think?
P. S. They are way cooler now than they were when we were kids!
We even had fun cleaning up!
My older nephews, JT & Colby, schooled me in Guitar Hero.
I am terrible at it!
Jorden was awesome!
It just kills me how grown up they are!
I was talking to them about the economy and politics! Whoa.
Here we have my sister showing off the "Redneck Windchime" my dad made with his new power tool.
Ain't it cute?!
I think it's really cute how he's being all crafty.
The thing that I will remember about this Thanksgiving was how my brother wasn't there. :(
He left a couple of days later for Iraq, so he called us on Thanksgiving to talk to everyone.
He pretty much left a trail of tears. Please keep Chris in your prayers. And while you're throwing that one up, please throw up a prayer for my mom, Cindy, too.
Now, bring on CHRISTMAS!!
