Whew, what a weekend!

First some very exciting news: The F.W. Springstead Marching Eagle Brigade, my own sweet Snew included, placed 4th at the FMBC's! Woohoooooo!!!

Name in lights at the Tropicana Dome - Home of the Rays

They just left it all on the field...

We are so proud of her.

We took advantage of her Dad being in town to celebrate his Birthday and Thanksgiving together. At 10:30 am Sunday when I hadn't even gone grocery shopping yet I didn't think it was going to happen. Thankfully we pulled it all together and we all spent some much needed time sitting around together and being thankful for eachother.

Birthday/Thanksgiving celebration...

Birthday/Thanksgiving Cake...

I think we're going to it this way annually because it was lots of, in addition to pumpkin pie, I got to eat chocolate cake, yum yum.

So, I'm officially done with Thanksgiving Day and am ready to move on to Christmas time. We're packing up all the Fall Decor and sending it over to my Mom's for her celebration on Thursday.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with those you love and who love you.

I'm thankful that so many of you inspire me daily with your blogs!
