This year, I am thankful to not be hosting the family Thanksgiving. It is on my list of things to eventually conquer. As the mom of two young kids, I have sooooo much to be thankful for. But, so often I get overwhelmed with a capital "O" at my inability to get things accomplished, especially tasks that used to only take minutes or seconds. So, having a day or month to celebrate what is going right, and thanking God for it, is needed.
I made squash and green bean casseroles to contribute to the family potluck. Then, we arrived at my in-laws for pre-dinner fun. My mother-in-law, Angela, suprised my son, Dash, with a fun, edible project. They made turkeys from oreos and candy.
