I just happened to look up and a week had gone by and I was no closer to checking off what I needed to make for Thanksgiving....somehow I made it through and no one noticed any shortcuts I took with the sweet potatoes or gravy! Yeah, JP!!!
And now I am getting ready for my first Chanukah/Christmas with my grandson, Elijah Robert. We are a two holiday family and I guess It feels like the best of all worlds....I can share my roots with my family when we light the lights for 8 nights and then make gingerbread houses with my God babies. We decorate our tree with priceless (to me!) ornaments made by my daughter, Ashley, when she was in nursery school. I think whatever your family does to share joy and spend time together, is a good thing. We are also so thankful to have my 101 year young father, Robert to bring in 2014 with the newest and youngest member of our family.
So, from my family and all the staff at beadshop.com, thank you for being in our lives and please have a safe and happy holiday, however you celebrate. Drive carefully and go ahead, eat as much as you want!
