I am hoping that all of you had a fantastic Thanksgiving. Did you eat and eat till your guts couldn't take it anymore? I hate to admit it, but I did! When you spend the last two days making the food, you just can't sit back and not eat it all! So, today I find myself overly full and salty!
The food was fantastic...turkey, potatoes, stuffing, gravy, cranberries, homemade rolls and our Pumpkin and Apple pie! Couldn't get any better. We had a very enjoyable day with just us four. God has truly blessed us and we are very thankful for all He has given us.
Here are a few pictures from the last few days. We have been getting snow and the temperature has been warmer. From 6 degrees (and below) to now a nice toasty 31! It feels great. It's amazing how your body gets used to the changing temperatures and when it warms up you really feel it.
We have also been taking care of the neighborhood roaming cat. He has been living quite comfortably in our garage. Not sure when we will let him out, but I am sure he does not want to go. He loves it in there. He is a very sweet cat and LOVES us. I hope I am not getting attached. I know the girls are. Yesterday, Jade was snow blowing and such...the girls asked where Cortes (the cat) was. I had no idea, I thought he was outside and that was that, but NO...I caught him in the house frisking on our sweet Kiwi's catnip toys!!! He is not fixed nor does he have his shots, so he is not allowed in the house! I picked him up and put him back in the garage. He was purring and so happy, so I made him a catnip sock! He went crazy and purred the whole time he frisked on that sock. It was super funny. Anyway, Cortes kitty is happy and we are not sure what his future will be...
