{at this moment...}

i'm feeling a little buried right now. can you believe thanksgiving is next week?! how did that happen? right after thanksgiving, we are leaving on a family trip, i'm reaching a huge milestone in my life, i'm celebrating one year of blogging, and i'm working on a little something for you guys as a token of my appreciation (more on all of this later, i promise). so, as you can imagine, i'm making list upon list of all the things i need to complete before we leave. all good things to be "stressed" about, i know.

meanwhile, back to thanksgiving...

every year for the past five years, my husband and i have gone to pasadena to serve dinner-in-the-park to families in need. as it stands, we drop the kids off at my parent's house while we serve food for a few hours, but i can't wait until the kids are old enough to volunteer with us. i believe it will be a great experience for them. when we're done, we pick up the kids, rush home, shower, make a quick side dish, and head to my husband's cousin's house where we enjoy a thanksgiving meal together. that's our thanksgiving day tradition. i'd love to hear yours...

have a great weekend everyone!

7 Send Me Your Thoughts:

  1. I just love your thanksgiving tradition (and I love the photo too!). I know cameras probably won't be cool, but I'd love to see a post about your day. Sounds like you have a lot of things in the hopper! Can't wait to watch what happens!

  2. Hi Theresa! I can't believe it either!! This month has just been flying by! I can't wait to see what you've got "cooking" for your readers :) Congrats on hitting the one year mark! I'm glad you are here amongst all the hurdles you've had to leap over. I'm looking to volunteer this holiday too! I agree and think that we are so blessed with so much, that it's good for the soul to give and share with people who may otherwise go without food, company, or a good laugh! Happy Holidays to you and your beautiful family :)

  3. Congartulations on your almost anniversary!
    I love that your Thanksgiving day tradition involves helping others. It's a beautiful thing to do and to also teach you children. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia so i have no tradition to share. If i used emoticons i would insert a sad face here! Good luck with all your preparations x

  4. I am also not believing it's Thanksgiving already. I feel that everyone has begun winding down for the the holidays. I think you volunteering with you kids when they are able is so great and the best thing one can do for their children. I love your photos! Teri

  5. found you on byw and love the blog! :)

  6. Hello and what a wonderful Thanksgiving tradition you have. Also good luck with your trip and everything you have planned!

    On Thanksgiving every year we get up early and run/walk a 6 mile race as a family. I'll be staying with my 10 year old this year, so we'll eat gummi bears and go at his pace. My husband and daughter will be ahead of us. Then we'll come home and have a casual meal and get together with family for dessert.

    Enjoy your busy week!

  7. Those are two amazing photos! Spending some final moments on the BYW website and came across your blog. Very nice!
