Thanksgiving...then Christmas.

Hello blogging friends. First of all I want to thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read my little blog. If you leave a comment I thank you for that too.  Sometimes I am amazed that anyone would actually come here and read what I have shared, it is even more special to have gotten to know some of you and being able to call you friends.

Well on my last post I said I was going to start decorating for Christmas...well......still working on that. I put away all of my fall decor and did some major cleaning so now I am ready to get things out for Christmas. I still had the Christmas spirit so I changed up my blog. I sure wish it was as easy to re-decorate our homes as it is our blogs. Just a few clicks and ta da...you are done. I guess that would not be nearly as fun as putting things in just the right place...maybe a better way to clean things up!

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and it is one of my favorite holidays. The best part is that most of the family is together and it is a very laid back holiday...says the girl that doesn't do any of the cooking. LOL  My brother Jon, SIL Judy, Ian, Ivan and Isaiah will be coming Thursday morning and stay overnight at Grandpa and Grandma's house. Isaiah hasn't been at Grandpa and Grandma's since Easter so Grandma is so excited to have him there. I am sure he will entertain all of us. Friday the shoppers will go shopping (nope I am not one of those) and my oldest nephew will come to my apartment and help me set up my tree and hang up my garland. They will go home on Saturday morning.

There are so many things that I am thankful for...
I am thankful that I have a God that loves me, accepts me and forgives me.
I am thankful for my family. They are my strength, my love and my joy
I am thankful that I get to babysit my nephew Isaiah
I am thankful for my friends that stick by me both in my life and my online friends.
I am thankful that I am pretty healthy and getting even healthier.
I am thankful for all the little things that touch my heart and make me smile every day.

Wishing you all a very blessed Thanksgiving. Again, thanks for stopping by.
