I'm Thankful!

I have so much to be thankful for this year! We are so blessed!

Addison's snack day was Tuesday at Preschool. I was so tempted to just get something easy and fast, but I wanted to do a special snack for Thanksgiving. So Monday, after working late, I headed to the grocery store to get the Turkey cookie supplies. I arrived home after 6, and quickly prepared dinner aka opening up the bought Rotisserie Chicken only to find a turkey breast, and warming up canned veges. I was tired, and so was Addison, but we managed to make a few cookies before she went to bed. I stayed up late and finished the cookies... Aren't they cute!!???

And then when I got up on Tuesday morning, I found this sweet note from my wonderful husband!

So they do realize we sometimes go the extra mile for our children, and appreciate the recognition! Thanks Babe!

Thursday morning, we got up and began our Thanksgiving rush- 3 Thanksgiving celebrations and then back home! Here is my little turkey ready for Thanksgiving!

First stop- Paw Paw and Joy's in Prescott. Here is Addison with her Grammy.

Second stop-Uncle Buddy and Aunt Karen's in Murfreesboro. Here is Addison with her Nana.

Uncle Buddy and the new addition- Molly. Addison had a blast playing with Molly!

And last stop- Aunt Margaret and Uncle Tom's house. This was a cool toy that my cousins had grown up playing with. Addison thought it was pretty neat, too!

We then took my Granny Sue home, and went inside to see her tree and Christmas decorations. I love her house and it always looks beautiful for whatever season, but especially Christmas! We put Addison in her pjs, brushed her teeth and headed home! It was awesome waking up Friday with nothing to do, but decorate!
Addison came home with a turkey painting made from her hand at school last week. On it, it said, "Addison is thankful for her Mommy and Daddy kissing at their wedding."
