Happy Thanksgiving!

Noah & Paige before dinner at my Mother's house.


Sophia LOVED the sparkling cider... (tee hee hee) I know what you're thinking... it's non-alcoholic!

After a delicious meal (all prepared by my Mother), we feasted on apple, pumpkin, pecan, lemon meringue, chocolate cream and banana cream pies. I should have taken a picture of the date nut balls, maple walnut chocolates, peanut butter chocolates and Needhams, ALL HOMEMADE by Mom, too! We came home with doggie bags of candy, some pie, a few meal leftovers, and over stuffed bellies! Thank you Mom, for a wonderful Thanksgiving meal! Mom has been making Thanksgiving dinner like this since I was a wee child, and Ted has been partaking in it for 17 years now!

Sophia's pretty serious about her apple pie!

Not to be outdone by Noah...

Sophia has pie, but Daddy's looks better! She was stealing his chocolate cream!

Paige wouldn't let me take a picture of her eating (she's such a lady!) but didn't mind me snapping one after.

I have so much to be thankful for. I'm thankful for my salvation, and the salvation of my family. I'm thankful for my wonderful husband, and my 3 children. I'm thankful for a warm home, and a mini-van that will take me wherever I want to go. I'm thankful that I can be home full-time with Sophia. I'm thankful that my children's grandparents all live within walking distance. I'm thankful for my extended family, and my church family. I'm thankful everyone is healthy. I'm thankful for the dear friends we have met in Texas, Alabama and across the country because of our adoption. I'm thankful for my blog friends. I'm thankful for my 2 naughty puppies, and how safe I feel when DH is away. I'm thankful they are house broken now! :)

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your mom and her cooking ... what I wouldn't do to have my mom's dressing again... try as I might, I still can't duplicate it :)

Have a blessed Christmas season!
