doesn't even begin to describe it!

I have so so much to be thankful for!

Family - crazy or not I love 'em! ;)
Friends - ditto! ;)
Home - we're so privileged in this country to even have a roof over our heads and yet we complain that they're not big enough, not nice enough, etc. I'm SO guilty of this! ={
Hope - seriously! how can I even begin to say "thank you" for the hope that I have in Christ?! It makes the tough things in life seem so small when I allow myself to think about what I have in Christ and what heaven is going to be like! Come quickly, Lord Jesus!!!!!

Wishing all of you a VERY Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Resigned to Reality...

was put myself in charge of making homemade ice cream for our Thanksgiving festivities tomorrow.

I have never made homemade ice cream before and I am now a forever fan!
I made vanilla ice cream {recipe available upon request =) } and it is!
**side note** Vanilla bean's are ridiculously expensive!!!! I chose extract! =)
It was easier 'an butterin' toast!
I can't wait to try it with apple pie!

I also *please, hold your applause* made cinnamon ice cream!
It is insanely yummy and should be against the law!
I can't even believe how good it smells and looks! It's the prettiest ice cream I've ever seen! 

I 'll take a picture of it tomorrow when I put it in a pretty bowl. For now it's just in a mixing bowl in the freezer.
I can't wait to try it with apple pie!

Why yes, that may mean 2 slices of apple pie and I'm ok with that.
After all we're  supposed to gain weight from Thanksgiving till New Years so I'm just doing my part!

With the leftover heavy cream (we all know why they call it that!) I think I'll make coffee ice cream! 

Dear Dr. Davis and Dr. Davis. 
I would like to schedule a consult for January 2nd, please. 
You see my mid section will need {ahem - more} considerable work done by then. 
I'm just planning ahead! =) 
Sincerely, Resigned to Reality

All I want for Christmas...

Ok, it's really not all I want, but I'm pretty sure it's what I most want! =)

Isn't this so pretty?!?!

I'm thinking I might get the names of MY kids on it though.
Just a thought!

*** Awesome, darling hubby -- if you happen to be reading this and might be interested in getting it you can find it here. Just sayin'! ;) ***

The Cat in the Hat and his cronies (i.e. Thing 1 and Thing 2)

* A good time was had by all.
* Wigs were (mostly) not worn. (As in, Josie wore hers part of the time and Caleb wore it for the picture!)
* Lessons were learned (Do not try to make a wig again! Just buy one!! side note: they did look better than in the picture, but we had to throw them on them quickly and snap the picture before tears and torn up wigs resulted!)
* Way too much candy is now in my house! Eeek!
