Thankful....Happy Thanksgiving!

I know...I got a head start on Christmas for the first time before Thanksgiving. (Except for shopping, I try to do that year round). Yes, even on my blog. Traditionally, I wait until the day after Thanksgiving to bring in all the Christmas decor. While everyone is out shopping I usually am home decorating! I get to host Christmas at my house this year!! Yeah! That is the reason I already have one Christmas tree up! It's the most wonderful time of the year!

First comes Thanksgiving! I will not skip what I am thankful for in my mind and heart, just because I've started thinking of Christmas earlier. So, HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEK!
I am thankful for so many blessings the Lord has given me and my family:
