happy thanksgiving

i love this day more and more every year.  i love what it means.  i love taking the time to really reflect on all the good things we have.  i love eating good food and enjoying good company without all of the pressure that comes with christmas.

b and i slept in this morning til 8:18!  i think that's the latest he's slept since his birth.  reason enough to be thankful, right?  i dove right in to baking.  fixed the creme brulees, chocolate muffins and sugar cookies.  gotta say, i was exhausted before noon.

mmm and the boys arrived around 1:30.  shortly thereafter b and i both took much needed naps and headed to my mom's a little after three.  such good food!  a walnut and cheese dip.  corn and potato chowder.  mashies.  turkey.  yams with pears and pecans (which i don't like but looked so pretty).  then the desserts.  i could explode.

sitting here with mmm and s watching elf which has got to be one of the sweetest and funniest movies ever.  too many good quotes i can't even keep track.  early to bed tonight i wager.  i'm beat.

lots to be thankful for today.  couldn't ask for anything more.
