Happy Thanksgiving...

I've been focusing on Christmas for the past few weeks---shopping (at those fun and fabulous stores in Phoenix), crafting some "really cute" presents, planning our annual "Santa Party," just to name a few things, but with Thanksgiving tomorrow I want to pause and remember all the many blessings I have in my life. I am so thankful for:

My incredible husband

The love and friendship of our three children

Our daughters and son-in-law

5 absolutely adorable grandchildren

My sister and best friend

A Mom and Dad that made me who I am today


Good Friends

The opportunity to live in America

The men and women serving in the military and keeping "Our America"
the most wonderful and safe place to live
And...on the lighter side...

The Vandals much improved football and basketball teams :0)

I could go on and on.....just let me say I have more to be thankful for than I have room on this blog. I am truly blessed. Happy Thanksgiving!!

In the blink of an eye...

It only seems like yesterday that this precious baby boy, our youngest grandchild, was born...November 21, 2005, a very special day!! I blinked my eyes and this is what happened...
He grew up
he loves Scooby Doo,
Thomas the Train,
playing soccer,
going to pre-school, and SO much more!!
He is turning "4"...oh my, he is growing up waaayyyy to fast for me!

I guess we can't call him "Baby L" any more!
