thanks... thanks a lot... really - very thankful!

Can you believe that this year we somehow managed to blow right past our Thanksgiving tradition of going around the table and saying one thing we were thankful for? How did that happen? Especially at a time when there really is so much to be thankful for.
My short list, my top three.
- A wonderful family - starting with a supportive, loving husband and sweet angel-boy. Also thankful for the rest of our family - parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents and the rest of our family tree-lings.
- FRIENDS... you know who you are - pals, I am thankful for YOU. (It DOES take a village!)
- Work... although I have been working a LOT (including ALL thanksgiving weekend) I am thankful to have a job that I love, that challenges me daily and that also comes with a paycheck that affords us to have a home, car, clothes and all the necessities - plus some extras.
What are you thankful for this year?
I will be thankful if anyone gets through my thanksgiving day snapshots.
This year's Thanksgiving Day table - simple, yet it still felt special. We had a toast to "Health and Long Life" given by Grandpa Grandpa and Liam shared some quality time...and Grandpa had some quality time with Liam's Guitar!The rest of the guests arrive, and we have an official welcoming committee of ONE.
Then we ATE!and ATEand ATE... you get the idea.We only invite super adorable guests... see!oh... i was a bit obsessed with this out of control spiced pumpkin cheesecake with sour cream topping and candied walnut garnish that chef todd made.
it's even pretty on the inside... and tasted every bit as good as it looks.

... now if you'll excuse me - i am already behind on my christmas shopping!
