Not The Thanksgiving I Planned & Thankful For (Days 21 to 26)

We were all packed up and ready for a great Thanksgiving in Pittsburgh, PA.  We had planned on leaving bright and early Thursday morning.  Instead, we were stuck in MD with a sick little boy.  This is how I spent my Thanksgiving…


Curled up on the couch with my sweet boy.

Kelsie and Dave had dinner with my family.  Kelsie was excited to spend lots of time with Aunt Denni.


Hope y’all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

November 21 – Today I am thankful for a husband who is great about keeping in touch with his friends.  Tonight we got together with some of them, including their wives and children.  I’m so bad about keeping in touch with old friends.


November 22 – Today I am thankful for all of my family members, MD and PA (and a few in TN and CA)!

November 23 – Today I am thankful for leftovers!  Dave made me a turkey (so sweet!) because I wasn’t able to attend T’giving dinner.  There’s nothing like a fresh turkey sandwich!  I just wish I had some of Aunt Vanessa’s sweet potatoes to go with it!

November 24 – Today I am thankful for my two sleepy kids who made the drive from MD to NC so peaceful.

November 25 – Today I am thankful for the “Talk-to-Text” app that makes my children laugh so hard, they think they are going to get sick.  I love hearing them laugh and get along.

November 26 – Today I am thankful for the gym.  A combination of eating poorly and not getting any exercise has made me GRUMPY!  Today I’m back to the gym and feeling good.  I’m hoping to keep this up through the holidays, so I can eat whatever I want!!!


  1. Hope Kyle is all better! I enjoyed seeing Kelsie. She is growing up! She'd really changed since the last time I saw her.

  2. Kyle is all better now! Just a 24-hour bug, thank goodness. Kelsie really is growing up fast. We were making fun of Denni because Kelsie is almost as tall as her!
