Wow, we have a lot to be thankful for this year. And every year frankly.

I just think it's so easy to lose sight of all the blessings we have and tend to focus on our "wants" and not "needs".

After there REALLY something out there you NEED at this moment that is imperitive to your survival (that you don't already posess?)

I didn't think so.

Anyway...this year we went to Mom's house in Woodbridge, VA to celebrate and give thanks. She was so awesome as she asked ALL the kids this year what their favorite food was and then in ADDITION to your traditional thanksgiving feast, we had...umm..SUSHI from Lex...STEAK from Matthew....MACARONI AND CHEESE..courtesy of Bug... and 2 other "oddball" things that Mason and KK chose. The kids LOVED it and it really made them feel special!


In addition to the dinner I was in charge of coming up with a few games to play after the meal.

So, I chose a game where you wrapped something that was small and enough for everyone to have...and you wrapped it and wrapped it and wrapped paperbags....

Then someone (me) sat there and played music as the package was passed around. If the music stopped while you had the package you had to tear off the 1st layer. And then Do what was written on there.

It was a we had people howling at the moon, singing songs and more! :)

I also had another game we played. But I cant think of the name.

Here are the pictures from that wonderful day!~

Happy 4th birthday Drama Mama!~

I can't believe she is 4!


Where are the years going?? I just LOVE this age with her....

Seriously...I feel like I have been the LUCKIEST mom have the kids that God gave me.

I must have done SOMETHING right! :)

Anyway...for her birthday we headed to Chuck E. Cheese.....again.

She LOVES this place. It was a small affair with only one of her friends this year.

Nana and Pappy came down and joined us as well. So it was them, us and the Jacksons.
