As I have mentioned just a few times, we have a very long Thanksgiving break. It is great, and I am already loving every second of it. We spent the weekend watching football, resting, relaxing, watching movies, and having fun.
We hope to continue the relaxing fun all week by playing games.
Cuddling in bed, while enjoying the beauty of sleeping later.
Eating yummy food.
And, giving thanks for some many things. I am truly, truly thankful for my littles. They are amazing kids. They created me because when anyone asks me to tell them about myself, my first thing to say is, “I am a mom.” It is a title that a cherish, a job that I adore. And, it is all because of my littles that I have that title, that job, and today, as with every day, I am very, very thankful for that.
One of the things that I love about cooking is knowing exactly what is going into the little bodies of my children. And, the process of creating something new and waiting for my family’s reaction, is fun. Even though not everything is a hit with everyone, I still enjoy knowing that everything was made with love, straight from my kitchen. There truly is something satisfying about that. And, when I can take leftovers and turn them into something totally different, that just takes the joy of it all up another notch.
So, yes, I am thankful for so many things this week. I am thankful for my littles and for the ability to be at home each day to create made-from scratch meals for them.
