Happy Thanksgiving

The kids and I were busy today doing the stuff we could the day before Thanksgiving. Husband does most of the cooking. We prepped the bread for the stuffing. We made carrot cake (This is Husband's favorite! We even had carrot cake as the groom's cake at our wedding.) We made pecan tassies (so much better than pecan pie if you ask me!) We snapped the green beans. I am going out on a limb and trying Pioneer Woman's green beans.
Tomorrow morning we will get up bright and early...oh wait, no it won't be bright. Will usually wakes up before or just as the sun gets up! I will make some light breakfast and coffee. Surely I will add peppermint mocha creamer to it.


I have so much to be thankful. Last year at this time, I was still doing a countdown to when Husband would be home from his deployment. It would be the last holiday we wouldn't share with him.


I am thankful...thankful for my Husband, for our kids, for friends near and far, for a home that makes me feel "at home" no matter if it is in KY, TX, KS, OK, CA, AK....okay, you get the point. My home has always been in a state of evolving. But it is a comfort all the time.


I am thankful for this adorable rusty turkey that sits on my porch. I am thankful for the friends that were with me when I went shopping for it (miss you Juliette and Arlene!).

I am thankful for all the people I have "met" through this blog. Thank you for taking time to read and comment each day.


Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours this holiday season.
