Happy Thanksgiving 2010

Another Thanksgiving has come and gone. We loved spending Thanksgiving in our new home back in Oklahoma close to our families and friends. It did seem a little weird to not drive the 3 hours to see our families. This year I hosted Thanksgiving with Hubs side of the family. This was the first time that I have EVER cooked a HUGE meal for people. I must say, I was a little bit nervous. Many of the things I made I had NEVER made before and I was about to serve them to my in laws. What if I messed it up, what if they get sick, what if it's just PLAIN disgusting?

I prepared some of the items the night before and got up early Thanksgiving morning to finish all the cooking. It's A LOT of hard work. Now I know how much work goes into it. I have to say that everything turned out delicious and everyone thought so too. YAY, for me!! However, I'm not sure I'm ready to make this a tradition. HA!!
I have SO many things to be thankful for this year. God has truly provided for our family on HIS timing. The beginning of the year was rough with things going on with HUBS. God's hand was right in the middle and we learned more than ever to TRUST him. He provided just as he promises he will. We got to move back to Oklahoma to be closer to our friends and family. I'm loving being back but still miss SO much about Texas. We were blessed with a new beautiful home and even able to rent our home in Texas. God is good!! November started out with a scare with Mom suffering 3 heart attacks that ended up in surgery and a stay in the hospital. I'm SO thankful that God chose to keep her here longer. I can't imagine my life without her in it. I can't imagine my kids growing up and not knowing her and making memories with her. She lost her mom at around the same age I am now and so she knows what it's like to not have your mom around. As you all know, even as grown adults, there are times when you JUST NEED YOUR MOM! Love you momma and so blessed to have you here. Please do EVERYTHING you can to get healthy and remain that way. We need you!!
We still have a little over a month left of this year and there are still MANY things that we have to be thankful for.
I'm so thankful for my wonderful husband that works HARD everyday so that I can stay home with my girls, that we have the nice things we have, and that he loves me the way he does. I'm thankful for my 2 beautiful girls that are healthy, happy, and SO MUCH FUN!

May God bless you and your family during this holiday season.
