Happy Thanksgiving

We celebrated Thanksgiving at my mom's house. . . This year it was just my family, my sister and her family usually come in for Christmas, so they didn't make it for Thanksgiving. We missed you Kristie!! Love you lots! We invited James' mom and dad to come and spend time with us also. We had a great day. My mom brought some of her casseroles to our house early Thursday morning because she didn't have room in her oven for all of the things she had to bake. . .We were glad to do this for her. . .I offered to do more, but she likes to do these things herself. . .; ) Here is a pic of my mom and me. . . pretty cute. . . She hates to have her picture made. . but I do it anyway. . .I can't wait to tell her about my plan to do a shoot of her and daddy with the kids. ..: )Daddy and me. . .Not often do we get our picture made together, and he still has to act silly. . .I finally got him to just act normal. . . I still think he was trying to say something in this pic. . .The kids with Mamaw Allen. . She walked from the car ALL the way up to my mom's front door with her walker. She said that was the farthest that she had walked in a while. . .It was hard on her, but she said "good for her too". For those of you who don't know, James' mom had a stroke last November, and is on a walker most of the time. The kids with both of their Papaw's. .How much better does it get? Two Papaw's in the same room? So, we had a great time just spending time with family and talking. Before I start talking about our after Thanksgiving shopping plans, I wanted to post a list of the 10 things that I am thankful for. I am a serious blog stalker. . .and one of the blogs I read is a girl who lives in Missippi. She has an AWESOME blog site. . .and we don't even know each other. . . even though I feel like we are Best Friends. . . Anyway, She put a Thankful list on her blog--so here is mine. . . .

I just love that. . .We have always put our tree in the living room, and decided this year to put it in the den. . I just want to enjoy it all the more. .We spend most of our time in the den, so that is where I wanted the tree. . .We moved some furniture around, and it looks beautiful!! Well, hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. . .

I know that this will annoy you, and I love you, but look at your numbering. I am glad you are thankful though! I am thankful that I can count! And for sugar cookies!
