Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Birthday!

First off I need to wish our DD a happy 15th birthday! Happy Birthday Carrie. I must share with all my blog friends that it is very strange to have a child with a birthday and not have that child at home! Carrie is our oldest and she left Monday morning to start her Thanksgiving holiday early. She met my mother on Amtrak and continued on to my Sister's home in Milwaukee. I guess I need to prepare myself that she is growing up! We are headed that way later for the Holiday weekend so we will wish Happy Birthday tonight. Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in blogland.

I hope that you all have lots to be thankful for, I know that I do. Enjoy a peaceful and relaxing day on Thursday. Even though we are traveling and the meal is not at my house, I plan on making my sister sit down and relax - she is due with child #3 in early January. With a 4 year old and an almost 3 year old I think she needs the break! My niece - the almost 3 year old - has named the baby "Sparkle" - good thing baby is a girl, as it might be a rather odd nickname for a boy! I am so thankful to have a wonderful, imaginative nephew and a headstrong, adorable niece with another one on the way. We will have a great time all being together, our two families, my Mom and my BIL's parents.



  1. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Ann with your family. Happy Birthday to you daughter. Oh to be 15 again.

  2. Hi Ann,
    Happy birthday to your daughter. And wishing you and yours a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!!

  3. Ann,
    Happy Birthday to your daughter & have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Sounds like your sister needs a break. Sparkle is such a lovely name, lol.
    Have safe travels.

  4. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family! Sparkle - too cute!

  5. Happy Thanksgiving to you too. My oldest two are 16 and 14 the time sure does go by fast. It is hard to imagine them doing things on their own but I know it will happen very soon.


Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm so happy to "meet" you through blog land. ~Ann
