Thanksgiving Has Begun!

My favorite holiday is here! It has started! And the best part is that this year I have family. Two of my daughters and their families arrived last night and my son and daughter who live in Utah will be here most of the week. I have five grandchildren in my house at once and am loving it. Kirsha is staying at Mariah's house, but everyone was here for dinner last night so there were eight grandchildren in my house at one time. (I hope the excitement is echoing through the Internet!!!!) This doesn't happen to me often!

We have so many plans--a talent show, puppet shows, reading Shel Silverstein together cuddled up in the Inglenook, going to the Children's Museum together, touch football in the backyard, and especially Thanksgiving dinner! Chaos, noise, laughter, music, rowdy fun!!! That's what I have to be thankful for. (And also an endodontist that fixed my toothache today!)

Yeah, it sounds wonderful and memorable. Thank goodness for great dentists. After all the cooking, you should be able to enjoy dinner! We will have all 10 of our grandkids ( and their parents), and I can't wait. So much to be grateful for, and so much fun to have with those we love. Have a wonderful week!!

I'm glad you were able to have your tooth fixed before Thanksgiving arrived. And it sounds like you will really enjoy your family during the holiday. :)
