Thanksgiving Day

(back posting)

Thanksgiving was awesome! Wednesday night I made 10 pies to prepare for Turkey Day. I seriously love making pies and have mastered the art of the perfect punkin pie! Mmmmmmmmm......

We went about our normal routine of heading to my in-laws at about 1130a-noon to get ready for our first feast of the day! Everything tasted amazing, and yet again my mother-in-law made stuffing that would win over the hearts of terrorists. I swear, it IS it's own food group! After watching some lame football on TV (can you say BORING) then having our own version of Thanksgiving NFL in the greenbelt by my sister-in-laws house, we headed out for feast #2 with my family! My sister, yet again, did an amazing job putting together a fantastic meal for us! And seriously, her broccoli salad recipe was FANTASTIC! (Heya LilSis, can you send me the recipe and I'll post it on here?!) I learned of a new obsession I had- Rock Band. As if my Guitar Hero love wasn't strong enough, Rock Band added to it! SO much fun! After a late night we headed home and got the babies into bed. I swear, they ate more food than I knew could fit into their bellies!

I am thankful for my amazing children. I am thankful for my husband. I am thankful for my mom, sister and AbeJed. I am thankful for ALL of my husbands family who is as much my own as they are his. I am thankful for friends, the people who love me when they have no family tie saying they have to. I am thankful for health. I am thankful for the ability, though hard, to provide for my family. I am thankful for safety among chaos. I am thankful for the people who have touched my life in the past.

And the sillies. I am thankful for Disneyland. I am thankful for Twilight. I am thankful for Starbucks. I am thankful for Gold Canyon Candles. I am thankful for San Tan Mall.
