I know a lot of people do this online or at the dinner table - every day during the month of November, you're supposed to say something that you are thankful for. It can be big or small, serious or not so serious - anything that you appreciate. It's such a great way to bring some positivity into your day! I figured we could all post daily and say something that we are thankful for, or we could just edit our original posts and add to it each day.

Plus it's a fun way to lead up to Christmas....by the time we're done it'll be December!
I definitely think you should start that as a Thanksgiving thread, that way you can get some of the members who aren't regulars to this thread to join in. I am sure George Broderick would have some funny quips to give us all a laugh. I would participate, probably not everyday, but I would enjoy reading what others write.

Go for it, Jennifer!!!!

Good afternoon,

I am completely immersed in Christmas stuff today. I have Music Choice Christmas on, I am going through my MP3's also, trying to figure out what I should add or take out of my player. I am resting up as my back is in quite a bit of pain again today. It is me and one of our cats, Alex, on the bed listening to the music. My wife went to one of those parties that friends sell jewelry, my wife sells Mary Kay, so she feels she has to go to others when they have them.

Hmmmmm, I wonder if there are such things as Christmas ornament selling parties.

My wife ran out and bought that huge nutcracker that LC fell in love with. remember the picture:


He is going to be in shock on Christmas morning when he opens it up. Rite Aid already has a 50% off sale on all Christmas!!! They aren't even close to being done setting it up.

I should get back to my Christmas music fun, I am loving doing this right now. It will probably be the only time I get to do it since I can't go back to work until Wednesday, after that I have to decorate the house.

Keep enjoying your Saturday!!!

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a wonderful day! I've been reading some of the other boards and enjoying the Hallmark movies that have been on. I am off to get a shower, but I will be back to read the posts from the day.

Keep smiles on your faces!!!

Well of course the album is good! Luke Bryan is on it!

How did it end up going? Did you get very many trick-or-treaters?

Home again! Very wet and quick trip.
Right now I am making a batch of granola, then I have to get busy with those cakes.
Hope you are all having a great day!
Will try and catch up here when I get a chance between tasks.

I still need to send you the picture of the kids candy bowls. I will have to do that here this evening.

You can come and visit, help eat the candy and all the treats, then you will truly be on a sugar high! Heck you'll be diabetic by the end of the trip!!!
