Is It Time For Turkey Yet?
This morning we didn't send the older kids to school and instead went and had their picture's taken at our local portrait studio. Our middle son hates having his picture taken so he said he would be fine to just go to school. We declined his sweet offer and instead scrubbed and puffed all of them into a sparkling clean and made it to our appointment exactly on time at 11:10 am. We were called in exactly 45minutes later. Why oh why do these places always run late?

Anyways, the pictures turned out really cute (I will post some when I get them back in a couple weeks) and besides the wait and the fact I spent all of our grocery money for the next month on pictures all is well.

After we were done Hubby asked if he could take our oldest son up to the ball park for some practice. Now he knows that their are lots of things around the house that really should get done today and we really shouldn't be doing things like going to the park. However, in my sweetest kindest voice I told him that would be OK with me if he wouldn't mind swinging by Sam's on his way home to pick up the tree. The one we almost purchased before.

No problem he told me. He will get it on the way home.

Wow, that was easy.

I am praying you all have a wonderful thanksgiving tomorrow. I am so thankful for all that God has bestowed upon our family. I am so thankful for a family who loves me, children who are healthy, and our many wonderful friends. Most of all I am thankful for a God who loves me warts and all.

Here is a sweet little ditty I would like to leave you with...

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
