I'm so thankful for my little batman. He's such a joy to us, even on days when I want to put him back where he came from. Hey, what can I say, he's 3 1/2 years old, he's not perfect!

I love that he has such an enthusiasm for life, even when mommy struggles with what God wants me to do- stay home and home-school the little man! Our little boy makes us laugh, yell, cry, and love more. He's starting to ask questions about family- who's related to who. "My grandma is your mom?" Yes. He's finally getting it, but I think I'm going to put together a family tree with photos of people, because some of them he remembers (Keegan and Aidan) and some of them he forgets (Uncle Mike and Aunt Vicky); then there's the ones he's never met that live far away.
Over his left shoulder you can see a Give Thanks Free Printable I found here. I had some frames I picked up from Wal-Mart a while ago that weren't being used, so I grabbed a frame and framed it. I haven't had time to make this cute little banner that I wanted to make before Thanksgiving.

 I found the banner here. So maybe I'll make it for next year.

I'm thankful for my warm house and food that we have to eat, so many people even in this country are going this holiday season without a warm place to sleep, food to eat in their kitchen or even a good paying job. The gap closes between the rich and the poor some days I really feel like I'm on the poor end, but thankful because I'm not really- I can still afford to pay my bills on time, feed and clothe my child. Plus we have a lot of luxuries I take for granted like XBOX Live, Netflix, Internet, computers, and two vehicles that still work even though they are both over 10 years old.

My latest project is taking all of my old t-shirts and making them into a blanket or a quilt, I haven't decided yet because just the word quilt scares me- I've never done a quilt before, so I don't really know what the difference is between an actual quilt and just a blanket.

In other news, the one family member that we thought would be single forever, my husbands brother, Jim, has found a girl named Suzi and they are getting married in February! It's so exciting to be part of wedding planning I forgot how much fun I had planning my own wedding (10 years ago in May)- it's awesome to see their wedding coming together so quickly and God opening doors for them during this whole process. We are already blessed by having Suzi a part of our lives and we welcome her into our family.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
