I Love Thanksgiving! Who knew?! Every Fall Dustie has to hold me back from jumping right into Christmas. His rule is I cannot decorate for Christmas until AFTER Halloween. :) Having Jax this year has really given me a new outlook on each day. Maybe it's because each new day brings a "first," but I am more eager to make every single day special and to savor every moment. This year I actually enjoyed Halloween and the fun celebration of children getting to dress up, have fun and goof off. The following month I have so enjoyed getting to take time to think about all the things I have to be thankful for. The list could go on and on, but here are some of the highlights:

I am thankful for:
-My Salvation
-My Family
-Church Family
-My Mom and Mammaw keeping Jax everyday
-My job and the freedom it gives me (espeically as a Mommy)
-Fall-for all the wonderful sights, smells & tastes!
-Christmas-and that I NOW get to start the celebration of Christ's birth!

This month we enjoyed so many things about Thanksgiving! We thought about what we were thankful for. We learned to thank God for those things. (Yes, I do realize I will probably have to "re-teach" this lesson next year...and the year after...and the year after...) We made goodies for the people that we are thankful for.

We learned about the Pilgrims.

And the Indians.

Putting together our "Spiced & Iced Pumpkin Cookies" YUMMY!

Jax in the midst of Thanksgiving-ness!

Jax-the pumpkin is just a prop! Now look at the camera!

Jax will enjoy his very own sweet potatoes & green beans for Thanksgiving Dinner. Here he is "practicing."

Sweet Taters are YUM!
