Happy Thanksgiving

Holiday Menu:
8 River’s Jerk Turkey
Spinach Casserole
Sweet and Sour Green Beans
Cranberry Fruit Salad
Crock pot Stuffing
Apple Pie
Pumpkin Pie
My family really liked the food. I felt like I was on the Food Network. It was fun cooking. I woke up @ 6:00 a.m. to start the casserole. Things went like clockwork after that. Today was a blessed day.
Things that I am thankful for:
– a peaceful year
– letting go and letting God
– my husband and kids
– our new addition to our family
– my extended family
Live stress- free,


This is a new picture of Anna. It is amazing what technology can do. I can see her features clearly.
Hubby and I were on the edge of our seats. It is confirmed two times over that we are having a baby girl. So Anna it is. Although lately… I have been thinking about Lily.
Luke 12: 27-28
Consider the lilies how they grow…. If then God so clothe the grass…. how much more will He clothe you…..

Dear Grandfather,

I burn a candle for you today.

because you are in my heart.

You’ve been gone so many years,

& for many years I’ve thought

..of things I could have said to you

..of things I could have done

to make your time with us more pleasant

& to make our family “one”.

You never knew how much I cared,

you never knew of my love.

I’m hoping that somehow

you realize it from above.

I miss your smile.

I miss your charm.

..the way you lived your life.

You loved us.

I know it.

You’re concern for me was true.

.. but what I miss the most..

is the chance to say…

“I love you”.

live stress-free,



Spent the day cleaning. everything smells fresh and clean. Even got the kids to get involved with the cleaning. Actually….. had to yell and nag, but it worked. At this very moment, they are cleaning their bathrooms!!! I need to get a picture of it.

I also started to put up the Christmas tree. DH thinks that it is a little early (and he’s right), but I think that I will be HUGE next month and want to get this out of the way. I’m not finished with it and it will probably change a few times, but this way, I can stand back and look at it and change it until I get it right.
Now I can focus on my Holiday meal menus.
I am trying new dishes almost every weekend. My own “Iron Chef” so to speak.
There is one more thing that I really need to master.

This has been the less stress that I have been under in years!
