Happy Thanksgiving!

This year, we stayed home and kept things easy.  It seems that as I get older I’m all for easy.  We ordered everything from Claim Jumpers and Kayla decided to make candied yams and Jacob wanted to make pumpkin pie.  Both came out surprisingly tasty.  But the hard stuff – turkey and ham – came already made so nothing for me to stress about on my end.  I did buy a turkey and I’m baking it today, Saturday, so we can have turkey everything over the next few weeks.  I know, it’s weird.  But it works for me so that’s how I do it.  I remember my mom doing the same when we were younger.  A huge turkey on Thanksgiving for the big family gathering and a smaller turkey just for us to enjoy over the next few weeks.

I spent the holiday break crafting on my projects and spent Black Friday on the first clue of Bonnie Hunter’s mystery QAL (Quilt-a-long).  There’s only 50-9 patches so I hope I can get those done by Monday!

~Happy crafting!

I am grateful to my family – the hubby, the kids, my parents, and sister and her family and everyone in my extended family –  my aunts and uncles and cousins, their families and all the friends who are practically family!  I am grateful for our health and all of the blessings we have today:  A roof over our heads, a working heater, a bed to sleep on.  And food – so much that we will be stuffed full today.  I am grateful for the modern tech that makes our lives so convenient on a day to day.  Our cell phones, our computers, our kindle, our ipad and all the games the kids enjoy playing. And Internet! OMG the internet!  We live in such an amazing world.  I am grateful to you for reading and all the nice comments I get every day!  I’ve made such wonderful connections!  Thank you!  They make me smile 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!
