Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 22, 2012

I had a nice time with the husband, daughter, grandson, daughter's boyfriend Dan and adopted daughter Faye yesterday celebrating Thanksgiving. Dinner was yummy. The pies were a hit especially the Apple Pecan! emoticon And Disney On Ice was a lot of fun! The grandson would attest to that. His favorite part was CARS followed by Toy Story.

As for any "drama". Yes, there were remarks made to try and upset the day but my suit of armor held emoticon and the smiles on my grandson's face as well as seeing him have so much fun, diminished their stings. I am thankful to say I got through the day intact!

Today will be a quiet one spent watching the Macy's parade, cropping photos from last night and later having left over Turkey with all the trimmings once again with just the husband and me. *And even though I allowed for a "free day" yesterday I have eaten quite moderately. No free for all feasting for me this holiday. emoticon What a change!

Wishing all my Spark friends a wonderful Thanksgiving! Praying the day is full of love, laughter and fun for all. I am so thankful to have found Sparkpeople. It has helped me so much the last couple of years in my endeavor to lose weight and learn to take better care of myself. The friends I have found here are emoticon, each and everyone. You all are my rock to lean on when times are difficult, my cheerleaders when things are going well and each of you have helped and inspired me more than you will ever know. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

    So glad to hear of your lovely day AND your fully functional suit of armor!
    Way to go, dear, just letting anything with a *sting* just deflect right off you.
    Thank YOU for being such a wonderful part of my journey here in this blessed place called SparkPeople!
    Enjoy your "2nd" thanksgiving meal, your day, and all the peace and joy it has to offer!

    Sallie, you have done so good and am so proud for you. I did not do that good but have been walking up and down stairs, other walking, and drinking my water. I have really tried hard but not succeeded--did not have the salads and veggies like I have at home. DD does not cook like we do either and even though dh did help some with the cooking, she does not have the ingredients that we do. I would love to have your apple pecan recipe. I did not eat any pecan pie or pumpkin pie but did taste dirt cake and pig pickin' cake dgd made for us.
