On Thanksgiving Day Andrea, Missy and I put together more Blessing Bags. I know this seems repetitive but the more cheer we can spread at the Holidays the more we can help. I love these two girls so much and I love that they have the giving spirit. Remembering those in need!

Happy Thanksgiving from two really cute turkeys!
Loving the plates...where's the food.
The place cards were really each adults Christmas Ornaments! I thought it would be so cute to wrap them like a barn with a little turkey on the outside.
Three little turkeys sitting at a table
Andrea gets her Barbie Celebration Ornament - a tradition
Nick got Scooby Doo and Scooby "got" his ball. :)
Each of the kids got a Christmas outfit, movie and a book.
We had such a great Thanksgiving Day. Everyone was here except for Vince and Caitlin. We really missed them. But are looking forward to seeing them at Christmas. We had a full day with preparing the lunch with all the Thanksgiving Day staples; turkey of course, green bean casserole, yams, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn and rolls. It was so yummy. We also had a Gingerbread Party after lunch (I'll get back to that later) and put together some Blessing Bags for the homeless. And of course looked at the ads and started planning our Black Friday shopping. I am so Thankful for my family and the time I get to spend with them.

Today a few "fun" girls got together at Warren Central and put some Blessing Bags together. We each brought a few items and were able to make enough bags to take and have a few left over. It was fun to get together and do something so meaningful. They were a little giddy after a long day but wanted to know if we could do it again for Christmas. I loved this idea when I saw it on Joy's Hope when we did the Oh Happy Day Project. So I wanted to spread the giving spirit with those girls I work with. I told the girls to let me know their stories as we give these bags for the Holidays.
My daughters and I are also doing blessing bags on Thanksgiving Day. I hope you all have a wonderful and Blessed Thanksgiving!
(Also, have fun on Black Friday)

This weekend I made a quick trip to St. Louis to surprise Molly at her Day Care for her Thanksgiving Luncheon. Missy and I went out on the playground and surprised her. She ran to me and jumped in my arms. She couldn't stop saying Mimi, Mimi. It does your heart good to know that someone loves and misses you that much. We had a nice lunch and her classroom was packed with lots of parent and grandparents. Then I got to take Molly and Delainey home for the afternoon. We ate dinner out that night and then started our shopping frenzy for the weekend and finished up last night seeing Breaking Dawn. I loved the movie as much as I loved the books. It was a great weekend. But back to our theme Monday, the memory of seeing Molly's surprise and happiness when she saw me MAKES ME SMILE!

I went to St. Louis this week and Miss Delainey was very busy exploring everything. She is quick and can reach just about anything she wants. You have to be watching her all the time. But these simple things that seem so big at the time are just precious. But then I'm Mimi and I don't have to watch out for her all the time. Seeing her smile makes me want to squeeze her!
