Blessings and Thanks

My favorite holiday is officially just around the corner. I love Thanksgiving. I love the family and friends that it brings together. I love the food. I love the feeling of just being with each other and not having to worry about presents or other things; I do wish that there were more holidays like that. At Thanksgiving, all there is to worry about is whether or not you choose to wear stretchy waist pants and if you should do the dishes after dinner or wait until the morning. Mine usually gets done half and half.
My side of the family actually had our Thanksgiving celebration early this year. We wanted to make sure that the weather was good enough for everyone to travel in and we also wanted to space things out so there wasn't so much turkey and not enough appetite for it. It worked out amazing. We hosted this year and I loved it. Sixteen people do fit in the house comfortably! I just wish that I took more photo's to prove it! All in all it was a blessed day.

I have been working on a few crafts with the boy I nanny. His family is having family from out of town for Thanksgiving, so we have been working on some holiday crafts. These are the place cards for their dinner. I can't say my on Thanksgiving dinner will be this crafty, especially since I'm not hosting it, but I wanted to share. The boy is only four and loves to make special things for his family and friends. I do believe that his family will enjoy these on their Thanksgiving table. 

I'm looking forward to the upcoming week and another plateful of turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. YUM!
