My Blessings

Eight for Dinner

Last night, I went out to finish my Thanksgiving Day dinner shopping. We always just celebrate with our, hubby and the kids...which is plenty, I know there are some people who have dinner for eight people with relatives included. It's sort of funny that our eight is just our family.

Anyway - after I made my list of everything I needed, minus the turkey (which I got free from work - a 13 pounder) and the potatoes (I had gotten them on a previous trip), I ended up spending ------

Are you ready for this???

70 Dollars!!! For just eight people!!

And that was after I used the store discounts and coupons I had. Man, I'm thankful that I had the money to spend. I'm grateful that Rich thought it was crazy, but didn't really complain. And I'm thankful that I get to make a great dinner, albeit an expensive one. Can't wait to get started cooking and baking everything! I hope it's worth it!

The Great Turkey Project

Ready To Go.....

I told Nathan that there was Story Hour this morning and that he needed to get ready to leave, so he ran to his room and dressed himself..........

......then I had to explain to him that it was way to cold to wear flip flops and shorts. He did a pretty good job otherwise though, don'cha ya think?

Singing Happy Birthday

We must not sound so great, since he was more interested in playing than listening to us sing
