mmmm Thanksgiving!

MMM Thanksgiving… what do you think when you hear Thanksgiving? I know I instantly think of FOOD. I was thinking today that I’m pretty sure Thanksgiving has turned completely into a holiday about eating rather than giving thanks. I also realized that we didn’t even go around the table this year, each taking a turn to say what they are thankful for. And then I realized that during dinner I certainly wasn’t feeling very thankful either. (it’s a little difficult to enjoy dinner when you just spent the past 6 hours cooking it and then don’t even get to eat it due to being the host and having to get up and get everything than anyone wants, as well as feed two children!) So… today I have decided I am going to be thankful! I am thankful that some of my family could come to celebrate with us. I am thankful that I have the means and ability to be able to host something like Thanksgiving Dinner. I am soooo very thankful for my two beautiful children who despite their constant need for attention give me so much joy. I am thankful for my amazing husband, who not only gave me these two beautiful children, but also gave me a house to live in, food to eat everyday, and every comfort I need and want. I am so very thankful that my Mom could come for Thanksgiving weekend. I am thankful that I have such amazing in laws, even if I didn’t get to spend this holiday with them. I honestly could go on for hours!! I truly am blessed and I thank God everyday for the blessings he has given me.

I am also thankful for this…..

mmm leftover turkey sandwiches!

I also had to add this video of Kaed eating his very first peach. He LOVED it, but insisted on eating it the same way I ate mine. With his little mouth it wasn’t all that easy for him…

    Hey Hilda,
    We definitely are in Calgary still – and we definitely should get together. I would love to meet your two boys!
    Yeah, we’ve been eating unprocessed foods – and I am amazed by the amount of food that is processed these days! Ah well. We do sprouted grains now, and I find myself in the organic isle more often than not! Who would’ve thought… We’re very happy though, and it’s been easier than we thought that it would be.
