Thankful Thanksgiving!

 As flowers carry dewdrops, trembling on the edges of the petals, and ready to fall at the first waft of the wind or brush of bird, so the heart should carry its beaded words of thanksgiving. At the first breath of heavenly flavor, let down the shower perfumed with the heart's gratitude.
-Henry Ward Beecher
 Thankful for big sisters who help little sisters in the snow!
I can't even zip up my coat, so this is a lifesaver!
(click on the picture, the colors are so bright and beautiful!)
Thankful no one broke their necks after sitting in this 
"It's totally safe Mom!" sled.
(oldest daughter, aka risk taker)
 Thankful for rosy cheeks and hot cocoa after playing in the snow
 Thankful for tights and a little girl who will wear them!!
My big girls won't wear them because "they itch"  
(they wear pants or leggings w/their dresses instead)
(I have no idea what my daughter is doing in the background)
 Thankful for tights and for Walmart who sells them cheaply!!
$3 and they are a great quality!
 Thankful (one of my favorite thankfuls this week) 
for little girls who can say so beautifully
"I wuv uuu!"
(I love you!)
 Thankful we finally made out Christ the King cake on Tuesday....
It's been a busy week...don't those M&M's look like jewels on a crown?

 Thankful for turkey pictures galore...

 Thankful  for the deer visiting our backyard...eating the pumpkins we threw in the woods!
Thankful after today's temp of over 50 degrees, the snow is pretty much gone!
 Thankful for this concert/play the kiddos have been planning all week and
the posters taped all over the house so we don't forget...
Thankful for my online friends and IRL friends who are praying for me and this baby, 
it means so much and I am just overwhelmed and over joyed by your kindness.

Thankful for this baby and that in 5 weeks, 4 days I can change from "worry" mode 
to "do" mode.  Although, I'm thinking, now, with the low fluid, it will be sooner than that
(might make that little extra tax deduction this year after all)

Thankful for a cautious doctor, I have another ultrasound tomorrow to 
measure fluid and the size of the baby's kidney.
(this will be my 5th appt this week)

Thankful my husband cancelled our guests for today (a couple weeks ago),
although, I was upset at first, (he knows the only way to slow me down is to force me)
after this stress-filled week, it turned out to be the best thing.

Thankful I've got my turkey in the oven and it's starting to smell heavenly...gotta go get 
potatoes, green beans and noodles on....

Happy Blessed Thanksgiving!


  1. I soooo understand the desire to switch from worry mode to action mode! Only another two weeks for me, luckily, but knowing my children, you might manage to get your baby out before I do!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! Love the pictures. Wow! You have way more snow than us. I love when the big ones help the little ones in the snow. Their little snowsuits must be like astronaut suits to us.

    If you have to have the baby earlier, my birthday would be a possibility. I would love to have a birthday buddy. (Dec. 28) But, you should try (not like you aren't) to keep the bun in the oven until your date. Praying...

    All the best with your appointment, fingers crossed, ahem, I mean hands folded.

  3. Love the snow. Hopefully you make your original baby date, but seems like you have a good doctor. Sounds like a lovely, relaxed Thanksgiving! Enjoy!

  4. I LOVE to read your thankful posts, and how apropos for today. Hope the rest of your holiday is truly wonderful!

  5. Like Shelly, I love to read your thanksgiving posts too especially when they have so many lovely pictures of your kiddos to see. You are always on my mind and in my prayers and I am so thankful that you are part of my blog family. Stay inside and warm and have a blessed rest of the weekend.

  6. What a lovely thankful never disappoint:) So neat to see snow in a different neck of the woods! Love all of those turkey handprints...we didn't get to that this year. Always enjoy your happy and sweet photos! Our prayers continue:)

  7. I'm impressed that you were able to do your "thankful posts" on Thanksgiving!

    --You still have snow?! Ours has been gone for a few days now. Except for the snowman in the front yard which now looks very out of place.

    --your picture of your two year old with your daughter in the backround balancing a plate(?) made me laugh.

    --my daughter won't wear tights anymore. Just pants or leggings. Except for her, she feels that tights are too prissy. Just like her Mama!Ha!

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Sounds like you have a very thankful and protective husband who watches out for you!

  8. Oops, i meant to say "a very caring and protective husband." My thoughts were still on your thankful post!

  9. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    Thankful for you. You are such a good friend to me.

    You and your baby are in my prayers everyday.

    We still have snow on the ground (Friday)...I sure was hoping it would be all gone for a little longer.

    Love the sled in the tree....that is totally awesome!
