Day 25 - I'm Thankful for...

...being able to stay in and not participate in al the Black Friday shopping madness!  I don't think I ever did do the early morning shopping thing, even when DS was young.  Just didn't ever seem like it was necessary.  I know a lot of families make it a tradition, which is cool.

We did have a great family dinner yesterday.  Most of the family were there, and we missed those who weren't able to come - two nieces and a great-niece live out of town, and a nephew had to work .  Lots of good food - turkey, noodles, dressing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, and dinner rolls.  Of course there were pumpkin pies and whipped cream for dessert.  Yummmm.....

I made a treat for everyone, this cute Thanksgiving Blessing Mix.

It was quick and easy.  I used the Blessings wheel and Soft Suede ink and added some color using sponges and SU! pastels.  I got this idea directly from Kimberly Van Diepen's blog, although she used a different wheel.  Inside is the poem, which describes the symbolism of the contents of the bag.

So today I will be working in the classroom again.  A stamp club member gave me the coolest 12x12 paper rack and I need to try to figure out a place to put it!.  I also need to make some Christmas gifts, so I might need to take a break and try stamping a bit.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving Day with your family!
