Giving Thanks

It’s another Thanksgiving Eve, and I had dinner out this evening with my little girl. It was a quiet, peaceful, laid back dinner. We had Mexican food, splitting the Special Dinner, with corn tortillas. She loves Mexican food. Now we’re back home. The kiddo is watching a fave program on TV, then we’re about to start making snap green beans with bacon and are boiling potatoes for potato salad for tomorrow. We’re going to make the stuffing tonight too so that we’re ready to stuff the turkey for in the morning. We were invited to various friend’s homes, but we decided on a little meal at our place in case any of our tenants stop by and want a plate. Some may wind up staying home without family so we don’t want them to miss turkey dinner.

We’ve got all kinds of goodies for munching and we’ve stacked up some awesome movies on the DVR. I’ve got a few Christian movies that we haven’t seen before, but don’t know if we’ll wind up watching them or save them for Christmas. My little one has been off from school for Thanksgiving Holidays so it’s been pretty mellow of late and that’s always nice!

Our animals are all doing great and they’ll get some treats so that they can be thankful tooMay God help me!. For those of you who remember, Vickie (our newest arrival),  has been with us approximately a year now and she’s been something else. What a little pistol that fur-kid is. I’m thankful this year for so many things.

  2. I’m blessed and grateful for my beautiful thirteen year old daughter.
  3. I’m thankful for two of the best friends anyone could ever have.
