Show and Tell Monday, 11/24/08



Thanksgiving week has just snuck right up on us. Have a plethora of food in the cupboards ready for a feast. Most of my family will be here for Thanksgiving which is a wonderful thing. I love having everyone around the dining room table, that's the best part of my house.


Hubby and I have done a good job. I am very proud of my family. They are all adults now and have gone out into the world and are productive members of their respective communities. Here are two photos of all of us at the beach enjoying one another, plus one of my rent-a-kids who still joins in on some of the family fun when he can.


I am thankful for my extended family. Those who have just stepped right up and helped out without ever needing to be asked.
I am thankful for old friends and new. Thankful for those who have supported me through some of the darkest times of my life. Thankful for those who have barely known me, but reached out to help me because they are just that good.
This will be a wonderful Thanksgiving, I have been so blessed.
Thank you to all who are a part of my life and my heart, I cherish you all.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families,
Pat

And Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! It really is a very easy skirt pattern to follow, and I like that there are several different styles in one.
Take care!
