Happy Thanksgiving!! I'll Miss My Family This Year!

Hi All!

Hope you are having the best of days today, enjoying your family and friends. I posted a little poem below, I like to share each Thanksgiving.  It makes me laugh!  I hope you are all laughing too with your families close and making memories!

Twas the Night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't sleep, 
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned - the dark meat and white,
but I fought the temptation with all of my might!

Tossing and turning with anticipation,
the thought of a snack became infatuation.

So, I raced (me and my little dog, Jake) to the kitchen,
 flung open the door,
and gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore!

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
'til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky,
with a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie!

But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees,
"Happy eating to All, pass the cranberries, please!"

"May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump,
may your potatoes 'n gravy have nary a lump."

"May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize,
may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs!"

 This year, I am spending Thanksgiving with my in-laws.  I love them dearly and am happy to be going to their house this year.   My family, Mom and Dad, sister and brother-in-law, are all in Monterey celebrating together.  I will miss them.  Below are a couple of pictures of my sister and daughter laughing at last year's Thanksgiving 2013. 

 Love looking at the these pics and remembering the laughter!  I hope you are laughing a lot today and enjoying being in the company of those that love you!

Do you see Jake photobombing!  Too funny.  He is totally food driven!!  A typical man!  




 I also wanted to take a minute to wish Everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!   During this Holiday, take time to count your blessing, thank the Lord above and take comfort that he is always near.  Say a prayer for those in need, those who need love or those who are neglected.  Pray for the sick and those who are hungry.  Pray for our troops and our country too!  

 If you have love to give - give it to Everyone, everywhere ... all the time!   IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE.    I am thankful for you!! 

May God bless you and your family!  XOXO LeeAnn, Jake and family
