Thanksgiving and a Birthday

Since I will be up to my eyeballs in turkey tomorrow,

and will not have a chance to get near my computer,

I would like to say

Happy Thanksgiving

to everyone a day early!

And not only will I be enjoying the Thanksgiving festivities,

but tomorrow I will also be celebrating my birthday!

Yes, I know it is quite sad that I have to be cooking on my birthday!

But don’t feel too sorry for me…

I spent yesterday being spoiled by some good friends

 with breakfast and pedicures.

Friday night, some friends will be joining us

 for dinner in a fabulous restaurant.

And at this very moment,

my husband and kids are out birthday shopping!

My seven year old has been memorizing my list

and will be suggesting things to my husband

so they can “surprise” me! 

I guess I can’t complain!
I really do have a lot to be thankful for!

And here are some old pictures of me just for fun!

I realized my mom has most of my baby pictures

but here is a picture I found from when I was one.

(Sorry about the poor quality!)

And another one – age 4.

Anyway, I hope you all

have a wonderful day tomorrow.

and I look forward to all the Christmas decor

in the weeks to come!!!

How are you spending your Thanksgiving?
