I Have Much To Be Thankful For

I have so much to be thankful for on this day before Thanksgiving...I have wonderful Blogland friends who send me the best packages like in yesterday's post and that show me how to make these yummy chocolate pretzels...
 

Thank you Sharon for showing me how to do these!

I am thankful for my sweet Hampton...here he is during one of our mornings together...he and I get up and let his mom and dad sleep in. I am such a lucky girl to have such a wonderful family.
 

The kids just went over to have lunch with my mom and to bring her here until Monday...they have to go home Monday so I'll take mom back to her house on Monday. She'll be here for Thanksgiving and for Hampton's First Birthday on Sunday. I just can't believe my little man is a year old already...hard to believe.

I am also so excited that Katie has caught the quilting bug...here's a quilt that she cut out by herself and we laid it out night before last...this is for a very good friend of her's whose having a new baby girl. Katie did a simple quilt for their first baby and decided she wanted to do one for the new baby and she wanted it to be a little more advanced to use her words. She hopes to start sewing before they head home. It is so wonderful to see how excited she is.
 


So my wish for all my friends is for a very Happy Thanksgiving...let's all take a moment to count our blessings...I count all of you in my blessings.

What a happy boy! The chocolate pretzels are a blast to make aren't they? The quilt is lovely, love the color combinations, not too baby-ish.

Perry said...

Hampton is so precious. I am sure you could just hug him 24 hours a day. And it looks like you have a future quilter on your hands.

What a precious little boy! He's darling. My DIL makes those chocolate pretzels. Every Christmas she makes so many wonderful treats, and one of my faves is the buckeyes...yummmmm. Years ago I used to have time to make lots of goodies too but I eventually dropped the habit because I had so much trouble finding extra time.

Dawn said...

Oh look at little Hampton! And Katie's quilt is going to be wonderful! It is exciting and simple all at the same time!

Kim said...

That will make a great quilt! I love the colors!

I'll definitely be back.
