Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone in blog-land has a wonderful, cozy, warm and thankful Thanksgiving. As I've grown older I've come to learn Thanksgiving is not just about the turkey, good food and family but remembering to be thankful for what we have. I'm so thankful for my family and friends, a warm house, the love I get from my fur babies and just being alive, happy and well! Sometimes the holidays can bring out the negative in us but life is too short to waste time dwelling on the negatives in life. Just remember, every minute is a minute you will never get back, so enjoy life and make the most of what you DO have.

I'm baking a turkey, my mom's cranberry relish and the stuffing to bring to my best friend's house that will be full of family and friends. I think my turkey is going to be joined by two prime rib roasts and tons and tons of sides and desserts. Yay! We even have snow on the ground still!

Although I wish I were in California with my family, I am thankful I have my family here in Oregon to enjoy with. :) Anyway, I will be home for Christmas so I'm definitely looking forward to that!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Drive safely in the snow. ^-^ We have a bunch up here in WA too...

Chosen family is a wonderful alternative to blood family when we can't be with them, and sometimes a better alternative all together. ^_~

I'm glad you have family to be with today. ^-^

Glad you are spending time with friends. It can be lonely without family around. I'll bet you had a wonderful time today.

I agree, no negativity, just be thankful for all you have.

I've never seen such indecent behavior from those two before... ok... I lie... lol.

The only good cat was Macha, as she's not really one for human food... strange girl... ^-^

We didn't venture out of the house until almost 4pm, & there were *still* crazy people everywhere... It was madness, I tell you... lolz...
