Thanksgiving at our house.

Happy Thanksgiving Day, everyone.
I hope this day finds you in good spirits
and full of reasons to be thankful.

The schedule for Doug's annual deer hunt with his brothers fell on Thanksgiving this year. Rather than miss out on having everyone together, we decided to have dinner the Sunday before. So, while many of you are celebrating with your families today and having your first taste of turkey and pumpkin pie, all that remains of our leftovers is cranberry sauce. {I do have lots of leftover turkey and ham in the freezer.}

I had good intentions of taking a bunch of family photos, but I was too busy in the kitchen with these lovely ladies - my sisters-in-law:

Left to right are Janet and Laurie (Doug's brother's wives), Meta (Doug's sister), and yours truly. I love my SIL's and we do have some fun when we get together!

One of the things we love about holidays is the chance to see people we love. This year our niece Jessica was able to join us and brought her two sons along with her. This is the adorable little Brennan, youngest member of the family right now:

I'll close with these sweet baby photos, wishing each of you a very happy Thanksgiving Day full of bountiful blessings for you and your family.

November Attitude of Gratitude:
* I am so grateful that I have such an amazing family. And it's an even bigger blessing that when I can't be with my own family I have Doug's to call my own as well. I am blessed with some amazing in-laws.
* I am so grateful to be one of four awesome SIL's who enjoy each other's company so much.
* I am grateful for sweet babies like Brennan who remind us of the pure joy and innocence we all begin with.
