Are you all FAT today too?

Did everyone else have a fabulous day yesterday? Here's a small sampling of the goodies at our table yesterday. Seriously, my mom made pies, my brother brought more pies and a pumkin roll, and my cousin' J's mom who came down with her family from Idaho brought dozens of cookies, and 3 different kinds of Amish sweet bread. Talk about calories!

This is on top of the fantastic FEAST that we had before we sat down to play games!

For 27 days of Thankful #26 and #27, I can't even narrow my thankfuls down...so I'm just gonna ramble!
I'm thankful for a new game J's family brought called funnybone. You have a partner, and the card tells you 2 bones you have to "join" to hold the card between. Then you have to hold the card there like that and choose another one. So for example, J and Pixie have "hand bone to shoulder bone", "thumb bone to nose bone", etc. If you drop your cards, you're out. In the background is J's almost fiance...he's "J" too. He's really great. They met at a Halloween party. I predict a New Year's engagement and a March Wedding. I can't wait!

Here's J and my brother D at an intense game of Chess. J won.

I'm thankful for a husband who is the kind of Daddy that will read to his princess, while wearing the jewels that said princess has bestowed upon him.

I'm also thankful for Naps. Although I didn't get one yesterday, I got to sleep in today! Here's D relaxing after a tough day of feasting and playing games. Now out to mom and dad's to do it all over again!

Hope you all are enjoying the holiday weekend! Thanks Amanda for hosting 27 Days of Thankful and giving me a chance to reflect on all my many blessings, from the simple to the amazing.

I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. I was in Utah for ours since all of my kids are there. Got to hear the excitement about the Real and about Donny while there! Calories don't count on Thanksgiving, at least i hope not...but it's time for me to get back on track! haha
