Happy Thanksgiving!!!! I am so thankful for my husband and my boys. They are the greatest. I am also thankful that my family was able to come down and celebrate the holiday with us. I love you all so much:) What a great day! So much food. Tons of fun. Great memories. Karin and I made shirts for all the guys that said Happy Thanksgiving on them. Then we traced the boys hands and made turkeys out of the handprints. They turned out so cute. I think we may continue that tradition in the future. On the menu today we had: a 20lb turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, carrots and rutabegas (my absolute favorite dish), my dad's stuffing, yams (both regular and candied), butternut squash, Chad's homemade cranberry sauce (plus the can stuff for my Dad and Michelle) and rolls. For dessert we had Cherry pie, Apple pie and a chocolate chip cheesecake. I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff. It was delicious and could not have been a better day! I hope everyone else had a happy holiday as well.

Chad and I have been together for over 10 years and married for 8. We have 2 boys. Nicholas is 6 and in 1st grade. He LOVES Star Wars especially Darth Vader. Jacob is 4 and is in preschool. He loves anything his big brother loves. He is very funny. Chad just started a new job as an Engineer working in the semi-conductor (nano technology) industry. He is also in the Army reserve. I am a stay at home mom and I love being home with my boys. They bring me such great joy.
