Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving (one day late ;-) from my family to yours....
I am so so grateful. So grateful. My life is so full, and I have so many blessings. I am so thankful, first and foremost, for my family. My three healthy and amazing children, my awesome, hardworking, funny and smart husband who shares those blessings with me, my parents, with whom I am lucky to have such a close relationship with, my brother, my SIL, and my niece and nephew, whom I am also lucky to be so close with, Tony's mother, who we miss and wish lived closer, grandparents who are still alive and healthy, aunts, uncles and cousins. Family is what it is all about. Without them, none of the other stuff matters.

I hope that my friends who celebrate Thanksgiving had a wonderful day. We host it here, so it was a busy day full of lots (and lots!) of yummy food. It's always a bit chaotic having a bunch of people in your home for a big dinner, but I like the chaos :-) One thing I am not grateful for is not being able to go Black Friday shopping this year lol. Yes, I am one of those crazy people who loves it! My MIL is usually here, though, to hang with the kids while I run around, so since she's not here this year, i'm taking a pass. Off to go to some online browsing...

P.S. You still have a few more days to enter my book giveaway two posts below :-)
