Well another Thanksgiving has come and gone. Hope yours was a happy one. Mine actually turned out OK...everyone was great and seemed to have a good time. I made 15 lbs. of mashed potatoes...I don't know what I was thinking?!?!? I have enough potatoes to last till next turkey day. Needless to say I'll be taking mashed potatoes to Charlene's tomorrow...and still have plenty left over I'm sure. YIKES!
Getting excited about Disney...get some details finalized...going to start on a shopping list of things I need to buy before we go. Can't wait...I'm getting excited. Dad and I are going to sit with the other siblings and try to get them nailed down to at least a rough schedule because if they don't they are going to be so overwhelmed. Not only that they will never be able to use their Disney Wishes for meals...I'm hoping everyone will have a pleasant vacation...I think we all deserve it.
So with Thanksgiving I wanted to list a few things that I'm thankful for:
First of all for the saving grace of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who loves me just as I am, takes me back when I come crawling back for forgiveness and died for a wretch like me so I could spend eternity with HIM! JESUS ROCKS!
Second for my husband who works so hard so I can stay home and raise our family...He ROCKS too!
For my awesome boys! They are the coolest...the rottenest...the most amazing beings in my life!! They make me laugh, they make me cry, they make me want to yank my hair out, but they are beautiful and I'm so blessed to call them mine!
For my awesome extended family...for in-laws that honestly and truly do ROCK...they love my boys (all 4 of them ;-) ) with so much love...it's not the "lets spoil them with gifts" love...it's the true "let me show you how much I love you" love...they ROCK and they are always willing to go out of their way to take the boys to school, take care of them when we need them to...they are great. For my family who is taking us to Disney...my dad wasn't able to afford to buy us a lot as we were growing up so Disney is his way of giving us what he wished he could have when we were young, yet now the grandparents get to experience it with the grandchildren too.
For awesome neighbors and friends...who made us two pumpkin pies for thanksgiving, always willing to share and hang with us, and their two beautiful girls that I get to babysit through the week. For friends who may be seperated by distance currently, yet still hold a huge place in my heart!
For an awesome church family that I love!
That's about it for now...may God's blessings truly rain on you and may you always cherish those things in your heart!
