"Sing praises to His name; HE forgets not His own."

We have been so blessed, and have so much to be thankful for...

-Our five (almost six) silly turkeys;
-Surviving ten years of marriage with the Father of those turkeys, who is also a loving and playful Dad;
-Having a close relationship with both my parents and all my siblings, who I'm very fortunate to still have here, even if we all live far apart;
-A best friend who loves me and my nutty children, despite my grumpiness lately;
-A group of girlfriends who always know how to make me laugh and keep things in perspective;
-My sweet, precious Granny, who has been a wonderful example to everyone who is fortunate enough to know her;
-A safe school system, where the principals love all the students and are truly passionate about education;
-Freedom to live for God and worship openly, without the worry of persecution;
-Good health, a roof over our heads, plenty of food and clothing;
-And of course, all of YOU;

... Just to name a few.

I hope this Thanksgiving finds you all well, happy and healthy.

Happy Turkey Day!!
Love, Big Momma

I found your blog through Jenn Engelbrecht and Robin O'Bryant a while back, and have been reading (stalking?) it ever since, and I just want to say that I think you have the cutest, sweetest family! I'm only 18 (Jenn used to babysit me when I was little!) but I am obsessed with reading your blog! Your children are adorable and I love your sense of humor and the way you are raising your big, funny family. Happy Thanksgiving! Promise I'm not as creepy as I probably just made it seem. :) (Forreals. You can ask Jenn and Robin. I think they'll claim me!)

So I'm way behind on blogs, I never read or update mine often enough! BUT! I do love that picture of you and Lucy! :) So now that Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is a blink away, I hope you all have a very merry one!
