Happy Thanksgiving!




I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving day full of great food and memorable times with family and friends! We are heading to Tulsa, USA for the day. Matt's mom lives there and hosts Thanksgiving. I have my food made including spinach dip. (Lauren, you can click on the link to see the recipe!)... I made fettucini alfredo tonight and it was WONDERFUL!

Amanda and I spent the morning getting the supplies to make the 'boyfriend' a birthday gift. She bought a big cork board and then really cool argyle ish ribbon and paper and we decorated it. We covered it with different blocks of paper and then covered seams with the ribbons. We hot glued buttons over the corners where the ribbons crossed. We hot glued a wood frame in one corner, and painted a big L for his name on front. The colors were blue and brown so we painted the L blue and sponged brown over it. We found a cool cross in the Christmas ornaments that had the blue color so we put that on the front and then a gold key which she hung a key tag off of that read "key to my " It was really cute. She put lots of pics of the two of them all over it and all the tickets from the movies they have seen together. It is a masterpiece and YES I will post a pic when I get my laptop going along with a pic of robot baby!

Barbara, I do plan to continue time travel tuesday. I'll try to set it up via the dinasour computer this Tuesday and the theme will be "travel back to last Thursday" so you can all share your day or something special about your day... anyway...

Izzy is doing great. She had a wonderful day at school yesterday. She is really enjoying learning letters, I think I mentioned that. But yesterday she helped write an E. She did lots of really good little things at school yesterday and it was just a good day.

Thank you all for blessing me everyday with your sweet comments, , prayers and friendship!
