Kent & Seth helping with the meal (whew, got a little tight in the kitchen but their help was much appreciated!)
Tessa loved the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade:
So thankful for Dad and that he joined us for our Thanksgivng meal:
And I'm thankful that Tessa helped Kent get up the leaves in the back for a couple of hours on Friday!
Life isn't perfect... there are health issues and everyday stresses in our lives, but we are truly blessed in more ways than I can count... and I do thank God everyday for those blessings.

For my "cover" I used a lot of things from the Scrapbook Circle December kit (not the acrylic album... had it in my stash). And in the last photo for Dec. 24 and 25, I used a couple of great stamps from Unity (love these stamps)!

This second layout was inspired by a challenge at Willow Traders (WWW#4) and I did add some black cardstock, some bling for the Scrapbook Circle Oct. kit, the Thickers, and an antique button I had. I painted the cardstock border with Stickles and "faked" my stitching. This kit is so versatile with traditional holiday colors as well as lots of pink! So much you can do with it! And lots more I plan to do with mine, so stay tuned!

Wendy and her designers are incredibly talented, so I cannot wait to see what will be created in this free workshop! I'm really just a "lurker" over at Bad Girls every now and then, but I am always amazed at the talent and creativity in the galleries. Can't wait to check it out and play along!

I am so thankful for God's "paintbrush" this time of the year!

I hope you prayed and voted today. I voted last week. And I have to admit, as much as I feel privileged to vote, I will be glad to an end of all the phone calls, media ads, junk mail, etc. And I will continue to pray for our President, Vice President, and other officials, whomever they may be. Lord, may America bless you!

Unablia: the inablility to blog or create everyday, even when the desire exists
Pente: a position in which one finds that they have gotten stuck and are unable to free themselves from such predicament (as illustrated by my son here).
