Happy Thanksgiving

I love this time of year. Our family has a ton of traditions and we all look forward to them. Its funny how my kids made fun of me for being a stickler about doing the same things every year, but when we didn’t do them for one reason or another, they were bummed. Some of the things we do…we always eat the same meal, but add one new item to try. We always set up our tree on the Friday after Thanksgiving. We never listen to or watch Christmas movies/music before Turkey Day. We make our first batch of homemade eggnog(the only kind we like) while doing the tree.  And we always reflect on the year that passed and truly take time to be thankful.

I am thankful for all the men and women who have fought to secure our freedoms.

I am thankful for all the neat opportunities I have had this year.

I am thankful for a very cool job where I meet very cool people.

i am thankful for friends, new and old.

I am thankful for my daughter in law who takes a huge chunk of time out of her life every week to take care of my little kiddos, so TSM and I can do EMT.

I am thankful that I get to meet a new friend and his friends on Friday.

I am thankful TSM has a good job.

I am really thankful my family is healthy, safe and all together.

I am thankful TSM is so sexy and that he picked me to hang with for the last 22 years.

I am thankful I can buy and shoot guns.

I am thankful for all of you. I do appreciate you advice, support, humor, understanding and just for coming here and sharing part of your lives with me.

May you all have a very blessed day!!!  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you all! There is so much we have to be thankful for, really. Sure we gripe and moan about all the BS going on in DC, the prices in stores, etc. If one thinks about it…..there are a great many people world wide as well as here in the U.S. that do not have it as good as we. I tend to look at things with the view of having the glass half full as opposed to being half empty. That does not mean I walk around with my head in the clouds though.

  3. I’m thankful that I had a chance to meet A Girl and Her Gun and The Sexy Marine. They are really a couple to look up to.

    You guys are awesome.

  4. Happy Thanksgravy! I’m thankful for the troops who are out there ensuring that I’ve got a long weekend to sit back, be lazy, massively overeat, and try to out-sloth myself from last year. Oh, and put up Christmas lights. Yay.

    To all our troops, my thanks.

  5. So many things for which to be thankful. I do enjoy this time of year and family getting together. Hope you had a spectacular gathering and too much food.
