I Have A Lot to be Thankful For

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day, I thought I would take a few minutes and reflect on some of the things that I am grateful for this year.
These are in no particular order...
I'm thankful for:
A WONDERFUL job where I am always surrounded by cute little kiddos!!
A nice place to rest my head each night!
A best friend and a mother in one. It just doesn't get much better
than Sandra D.
New friends and old friends.
A very large, sometimes disfunctional family, that I will always love no matter what.
(By the way, Charles Stanley says that if you have more than one person in your family, then it's disfunctional. Go ahead and place your family in that category, too!!)
Knowing that my God loves me no matter where I am or what I do!!
I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving! What are some things you're thankful for?

It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!!!

Many of you know that Christmas is one of my very favorite holidays! I start listening to Christmas music around September! I absolutely LOVE cold weather, LOVE getting Christmas cards in the mail, and LOVE to decorate my house and office. This year, I took on a new hobby of decorating my friend's homes. Last week, I decorated two christmas trees (that look fabulous if I do say so myself) and I'm doing another one next week when I get back in town. After all the hype of going to Christmas open houses and decorating for my friends, I would come home and look at my house and it wasn't even close to looking like Christmas. I changed that this weekend, though. I made a wreath for my grandmother's house, my house (and my mom's house too, I guess you could say, haha!) and for my office.

We're going to pick up our Christmas tree on Thanksgiving day so that when we return from the beach, it will be ready to decorate! I hope that you and yours have a great Turkey day! I'll post more when I return.

How Much Fun!!!

This past Saturday morning, I juggled my time between children's "extra" choir practices, rummage sale drop-off's for our Tuesday night bible study and a funeral. It was definitely an exhausting morning, but the afternoon was well worth it. After the kids got finished with practice, we had a pizza party and went to play on the new equipment at Bonita Lakes. I had the best time just being a kid. I have the BEST job in the world!!
