More Thanksgiving Blessings

I love Thanksgiving!  Yes, we always eat way too much food.  But it's a time when family can come together and simply enjoy one another.  This year Greg and I went to his sister Amy's house.

I offered to bring the stuffing.  Last year I found the best stuffing recipe so I knew it would be good.  I 'pinned it' on Pinterest so it would be easy to find the recipe in the future.

After saying grace, we all went around the table to share what we were thankful for.  What a blessing that was for each one of us.  God is good!

Greg and I were invited to attend the Arizona State Football Finals on Saturday.  The game was between Desert Vista and Hamilton High School.  My niece Sarah attends Desert Vista and she is in the Color Guard.  They were performing before the big game so we wanted to see her in action on the field.

It was the best game to attend.  Desert Vista were the underdogs as Hamilton was undefeated all season.  Well, here is the final score.  Desert Vista High School won 45-19!  There was lots of celebrating.

Of course, I had to share the blessings of the little children I get to work with each day.  The school had a special Thanksgiving feast and the parents were the hosts.  Our class of three year olds dressed up as Native Americans as they donned their felt vests and headdress with feathers.  They looked so cute!  They even got to sing a turkey song they'd been practicing.

I'm linking up with Ann of A Holy Experience as I continue to count my everyday blessings.  It's not too late to join in so I encourage you to start counting.

Blessings and love,
