Thanksgiving again...!

   Hello...and you thought today was just a normal ole Tuesday! LOL  Today happens to be Thanksgiving #3 for us! Sadly, this year we were separated from one of our kiddos on the actual holiday due to a job and so we wanted to have a Thanksgiving celebration that included all of us! Today is that day and we are having the works!  Ham, turkey, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, baked mac and cheese, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, rolls and of course pumpkin pie! :)   I have been up since the dawn peeked through this morning to get everything in the works.  Definitely a labor of love!  One that I don't mind even a little bit though!  One of hubby's uncles told me once that if you cook for them they will love you! :)  He was a very special guy and those words sure do ring true with me.  I am really looking forward to our dinner tonight.  I really love Thanksgiving and feel really lucky to have my kids all together to celebrate.  I wanted to make little place cards for everybody  to remind them that I am thankful for each of them.

Just a little note with a message tucked inside for everybody! :)

I used sponged daubers to color my leaves and kept the colors all Fall themed.  

Standing side.  These were fun to make! :)


Ok, I need to run!  Time to get the turkey in the oven!  Have a wonderful Tuesday!  I will be back soon! :)
