Happy Thanksgiving

This is the first Thanksgiving I will not be spending with at least one of my children. I will miss them today, but I'm so thankful that I will see them for Christmas.

We will be spending today with friends and I made my traditional baked ziti dish to share. It's been forever since I didn't take the lead on Thanksgiving. It feels weird not to make the turkey, green beans, corn, ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, and pork stuffing with pine nuts. It was always a time of feasting and celebrating family and friends.

I'm grateful for so many things in my life. I have God, a loving husband, wonderful children, and good friends. So today I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving Day.

We will be feasting on this traditional Turkey meal at my moms on sunday so today we enjoyed spaghetti which was a bit interesting! Finished with some pumpkin pie though;)
Hope your day was wonderful!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too. My daughter couldn't make it this year, but my sons are here. When they get older it just gets harder.

Happy Thanksgiving, Nadine and Tom! I hope it was a wonderful day spent with friends and that the kids weren't missed too much. It's hard moving and getting used to the "new normal."

Glad you received the CD so soon - hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I do!

Blessings!
