Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I have so much to be thankful for. This year has been filled with blessings, big and small. Should I save a list for tomorrow? I think so.

For Thanksgiving we shall be heading to Grandma's house, as it should be. I call my Mom Grandma now... We made pumpkin pie yesterday and I went grocery shopping for goodies like cranberry sauce and pickles. Pickles always go over well at Thanksgiving, as do olives. On Friday, Adam and I are having his parents and grandparents over for second Thanksgiving. His grandparents live two hours away and have not yet seen Joshua, so I am looking forward to their meeting. For second Thanksgiving, Adam is cooking a turkey. He has not yet tried this, so he is being adventurous. The other day he was watching Alton Brown's cooking show and was inspired to try a turkey. I am supposed to make another pumpkin pie, which I will have to tackle this afternoon as I will have no time tomorrow. It will be interesting having two Thanksgivings in a row. I suppose I should also try to finish folding the laundry which has occupied my living room for the past several days. Which means I should get off my butt and start my day. Hmm... A shower does sound nice. Boy, I better get moving!

Sounds like you have a tiny blessing at home. They make the holidays special. Enjoy your holiday. I love that part of the country but have never been there in the winter.

It will be fabulous to have two Thanksgivings in a row! Have a wonderful time at both. It sure will be exciting to introduce Josh to his great grandparents.

Our Thanksgiving got cancelled. We were going to go to a friends house but one of their little ones is pretty sick.... Not sure what we'll do now!

Oh Shelly, that's sad. I never thought about having a back-up plan for Thanksgiving.

Bethany, did Josh enjoy his first Thanksgiving? Did you even get to hold him at all yesterday? I am sure there were many hands reaching out to hold him.

Only the mommy feeds this baby. Nursing is a good way to insure the mommy gets plenty of time to gaze into her sweet baby's face.
