Special Thanksgiving list

Today was full of smiles....being around the kids always brings out extra ones
Them wanting to "touch" the turkey before we cooked it
A very serious discussion about why we eat turkey with a three year old
Champagne before noon
Picking up a jewelry order
Yummy dinner with all the fixings...
Bribing the kids with a dollar to try cranberry sauce...they did and they liked it!
Sitting on the couch trying to get homework done and the little one throws his arms around my neck and gives me a kiss- just wanted to say I love you Auntie
Yummy chocolate pie
homework is done for tonight
Football on TV
Actually enjoying the holiday with my inlaws, only getting teary once cause I wasn't with my family
The oldest nephew not wanting to go to bed cause we are here....promises that we will be here all weekend have been going on for the last hour
Separating myself from the fray to finish my homework (and write this blog post) and the oldest nephew coming in to show me his etch a sketch mazes
Planning a shopping trip out tonight to go start shopping for Christmas....my sister in law and I are going to start in about two hours till probably about 3am...then come back and crash for a little while.
The only downside....I forgot to bring my camera with me...but the memories will still be there...
plus my nephew grabbed my sister in laws camera- so I am sure it will be interesting to see how he captured this holiday!!
Hugs to you all!
