Turkey Day 2010

 Once again CHB's folks hosted our annual dinner. Lil C and Doodle were with me this year too!!

This was the first time in 25 years that there was snow on the ground for Thanksgiving Day! We had a couple of feet...........

We had a wonderful meal, shared with all my freinds and surrogate family. As we sat at the table eating, laughing, talking, I couldn't help but be extremely thankful for being in a better place than I was just a year ago.

Marco? Polo?

It has been almost 30 days since I blogged and I feel like a heel. Sorry my peeps. Will do better from here forward.........

I have been a busy beaver that is for sure! Lil C and Doodle finished out their soccer seasons, I have been camping with my Girl Scout troop, I have driven all over for Girl Scout training, I have been sick, I have been making jam, AND I am re-learning how to drive in the snow! (We got 3 inches here, which is a l0t for us before Turkey Day).

I am looking forward to the holiday tomorrow........... although I have a million and 5 things to do to get ready, shock I know. I am hoping that PB will be able to put in an appearance so that all my friends can meet him. He does have 2, yes folks 2, family dinners to go to.

I am ready to eat, drink wine, laugh until it hurts, wash dishes with CHB, and relax with my people. Everything a good holiday dinner is made of. :)

Have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving, wherever you go.
