Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Lord, I give my humble thanks! You've truly been good to me this year in so many ways! I love being a Nana, and I think I love being a Nana better than anything else! I give thanks for my newest, little Averie Joseph Tomah, who arrived November 8, 2009 at 2:41 am weighing in at a whooping 7lbs 2ozs. What a cutie he is!


Then I give thanks for my number 1 grandson, Aiden Joseph Walker. He still knows how to make me smile! Look at what a dashing pirate he made on Halloween, contemplating his loot!
Then there's baby girl Addison Skye Townsend. She's not taking a backseat to these boys! I don't think I've ever seen a cuter fairy! Don't you just want to kiss her little face!Yes, Lord...I give thanks for my little grandbabies. I give thanks for my daughters and thanks that I can enjoy them all! I am truly blessed.
I have spent yesterday making 2 pecan pies, 2 pumpkin pies, a mincement pie, pumkin bread, banana nut bread, 2 dozen rolls, and magic cookie bars. The giblets are on their all night simmer, and in a few hours the turkey will go in the oven. This is Addie's first Thanksgiving and she has been right at my feet all day long sampling the batter, and smiling her big ole toothless smile. She knows Nana is making her something good!
From my family to yours, wishing you a Blessed Thanksgiving!!! (don't eat too much turkey!)

Mary, sounds like you were busy! I made 2 apple pies, 2 pumpkin pies 2 loaves french bread for stuffing the day before and then all the other stuff on Thanksgiving day. Glad to know I was not the only one running around baking like crazy! The pics of your grandkids are so cute! God Bless You and your gang!!

Thanks ChelleC! What a coincidence Averie having the same birthday! I'm glad you enjoy my little blog. I have somemore things to post too!
