Be Thankful........



The corn casserole, sweet potato casserole, ambrosia, chocolate mousse pie, and orange rolls are made and waiting patiently in the overflowing fridge (next to the defrosting ham!) for their turns at tomorrow's holiday buffet.  Pumpkin bread will be made in the morning so it's fresh and warm for the dining table.

We are celebrating with Jeff's parents, who are here from New York, and dear friends who have graciously opened their home to us.  It will be a good day of food and football and parades and play.  Then my dear friend and I will head north to Pennsylvania for a day of laughing and shopping and more eating and then more shopping and even more laughing with my mom and sister and sister-in-law.  I can't wait!

Today, as I bustled around attempting to check things off my holiday to-do list, I hummed this little song that Sawyer learned in kindergarten.  It's appropriate for this most reflective of holidays.  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.


The Lord is good to me
And so I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need
The sun and rain and the apple seed

The Lord is good to me!
