The Countdown Continues...

Has anyone been paying attention to my Christmas Countdown at the top of my blog?  Oh my goodness - Christmas is right around the corner!  But before we get to Christmas, we must stop by Thanksgiving first.  I am so excited about it, I absolutely LOVE this holiday.  What's better than being with family, eating Turkey & dressing and giving thanks?

For the past few years, Jack and I have hosted Thanksgiving Dinner at our house.  And when I say dinner, I mean a 1:30pm-2ish late lunch?!  Isn't that when everyone eats "dinner" on the 24th of November?  I make my Grandmother's turkey recipe and I'm so excited because this year is going to be the first year I use her turkey platter.  Last year I used a platter with a pig on it #plattersthatdontremindyouofthanksgiving.  Jack is also going to make a tenderloin.  His dad used to always make tenderloin's for Thanksgiving and Christmas, so he wants to keep that tradition alive.

I think I will do my grocery shopping on Friday when I get off work.  I have half day Fridays so I will be able to go during the day while HOPEFULLY everyone else is at work.  I fear the thought of going to the grocery store the weekend before Thanksgiving.  Will they run out of Turkeys?  Will they have enough chicken broth?  I must get my groceries soon!

A few things I am thankful for:
  • Our Merciful God and the love He shows to me daily.
  • My truly amazing / handsome husband.  How did I get so lucky?  Love isn't a big enough word to describe how I feel about him.
  • Jonathan.  What a miracle and gift babies are.
  • VelcroDog.  AKA - Mr. Tank, Mr. Baby, Magoo, Snick.  This little guy brings so much joy and laughter into our home.
  • My Wonderful Family.
  • My Hilarious Friends.
  • Prayer. 
  • Laughter.
