Give Thanks for Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve everyone!

This year I feel that I have a lot to be thankful for and I did a better job of letting people know I am thankful for them.  Healthy baby growing, happy marriage and wonderful friends and family.  I always try to think of new things that have come into my life that I never considered giving thanks for in previous years.  This year with my pregnancy it has been getting what I want and need when I want or need it. haha!

My wonderful husband did the “Jim Dear Moment” that I have always wanted a husband to do for me.  You know the scene, Lady and the Tramp when Jim Dear goes out into the snowy, night and fetches Darling a watermelon.  Mine wasn’t watermelon but it was sherbet and when he got home with enough sherbet to feed a small village I knew I had Jim Dear.

Giving thanks… what does that truly mean?  You say thank you all year long to your loved ones or to strangers.  It’s kind of like Valentine’s Day, why do we pick one day out of the year to truly be thankful for what our life is?  My goal with little Olive coming into the world is to make sure that she grows up being thankful everyday so at Thanksgiving she can just over eat and enjoy the Macy’s parade.

What family traditions do you have at Thanksgiving?

What are you making for your Thanksgiving dinner?  Here are the two recipes I am making:

I love traditions!  I can’t wait to have so many that we forget some some years!  I want Olive to be an adult and pass along crazy, fun things that her parents did with her to her kids and so on.  I don’t have any traditions in my family. And that is a tradition I want to put an end too.

I truly hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving, gives thanks for what’s important and remembers to be thankful all year round.  Karma Baby!
