We are expecting the arrival of a mystery guest today. My kids thought it might be the turkey, but they were wrong. Then they guessed it might be one of these guys. Wrong again, although we did have a lot of fun making them.
The one person that they haven't guessed is their Uncle Adam. He's flying in from New York City's lower East side. Shh, don't tell, because he won't be here until close to turkey time.
I told my daughter she could make place cards and do the seating chart this year. I'm sort of betting she'll put herself at the head of the table.
That's okay. I'm thankful for her help because it gives me more time to reflect on the bounty of my life, aside from everything else I've already mentioned, here are three more things that make me thankful:
I'm thankful for you! I love hearing your opinions and thoughts. Even when you don't leave a comment it still makes me happy when the blog gets a lot of hits. It's good to know I'm not alone out here in the blogosphere.
I'm also thankful each and every time someone tells me they read Losing Beauty and enjoyed it. It makes my day. Seriously!
And finally, I'm thankful that I made the Wild Mushroom and Butternut Squash Bread Pudding on Wednesday because it took a ridiculously long time...I'm also thankful that I get to eat it today!
