Happy Thanksgiving! A Day of Gratitude & Reflection, Family & Friends, Fun & Food!
Thanksgiving Day with the FiveSibes...
Watching the parade...
"Woo! Will we see Santa Paws?!"
Helping Mom in the kitchen...
"Well someone has to lick up the crumbs!"
Woo, is that turkey cookie for US???!!!
(Thanks, Sassy's Goodies!)
Still waiting on baby hu-brother...
A little Nanny-to-be retail therapy while waiting led to these adorable Husky baby outfits!
Six days past due date! What will come first, the baby or the turkey?!
Guess Mr. Turkey won!
Of Thanksgiving past: Harley, Chloe & Gibson eyeing the stuffing!

I'm so very thankful for so many things. For my family, whom I love dearly. My husband, whose love I can count on and he is always there for me and our family. For my daughter, my very best friend and constant support and confidante. For my first grandson she is carrying, who is due any time now. For my son-in-law for his caring and humor. For my now angel mother, my biggest cheerleader who was so supportive and loving throughout my entire life. My wonderful FiveSibes: Harley, furangel Gibson, Wolf, Chloe, and Bandit, who fill our lives with joy and companionship. For our sweet adopted feral kitty Binx. For good health. For the gift of writing. For a creative eye in which to view the beauty of the world in which we live. For having wonderful friends. As many of you know last year was an especially tough year for me, devastating really. I lost my beloved mother on November 15th, then my wooly boy, Gibson, a month later on December 16th. When Gibson suddenly fell ill, Ann of Zoolatry created a special badge as a pawcircle of prayer for him, and when he passed, yet another badge (above) to honor my sweet boy. I still do not even know how she knew, but she's an angel. How do I say "thank you" to each and every one of you amazing friends in this wonderful placed called Blogville for all the caring thoughts, prayers, comments, and notes you sent to me during and after Gibson earned his wings? I'm still reading them...and they have touched my heart forever so. Thank you, thank you, dear Blogville friends! Wishing you all many blessings and much happiness in the year ahead.
We hope you all had a very wonderful Thanksgiving!
