I LOVE Christmas. Its one of my favorite times of the year, and even living in the armpit of America can't take that away. I love the decorations and the lights. All the yummy Christmas treats add to my joy! Although I prefer to bake and give it away. I have been in and out of blogging lately, getting everything prepared for Thanksgiving gave me plenty of material, but no time!
Then today I came across the 5 Minutes For Mom Christmas giveaway!
It ends today, but you STILL have time to check out the prizes and enter some of them too! There are so many great items, and all useful!
So Thanksgiving, loads of fun. I got to make all my favorites, Turkey, cranberry stuffing, mashed potatoes full of sour cream and cheddar cheese, rolls, and OH the DESSERTS!! Chocolate Cream Pie, Double Layer Pumpkin Pie, Strawberry Pretzel Salad, and a Pumpkin Roll. And Train Junkie had his traditional bowl of Thanksgiving Mac and Cheese. Just like the kind the Indians introduced to the Pilgrims. And I thank them every time he asks for a healthy bowl full or processed cheese and starch.
Little Guy, of course, ate EVERYTHING I put in front of him. Although you would never know it to look at this kid.
All in all, it was a good day, a little sad since hubby is deployed, and we really miss him. But every day I mark off on the calendar puts him a little closer to us. I am so thankful that I have a wonderful family and a loving hubby, sweet kids, and good friends. We are very blessed in spite of a lot of things. And I am especially thankful that even though hubby is deployed, he is someplace OTHER than Iraq...
