My Favorite Holiday is on It's Way

There is nothing I love more than the holiday season. My most FAVORITE holiday is a little over a week away and I absolutely beyond excited!

Yes friends, I am speaking of that centuries old holiday we call 'Thanksgiving.' Everything is perfect about that holiday. The fall colors, the weather, the clothes, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, being surrounded by loved ones and FOOD.

A couple years ago Beau and I spent our first Thanksgiving away from our loved ones. He was in school in Dominica and he couldn't make it home so I went to him. It was difficult for us being so far away from home, but I was determined to make it a REAL Thanksgiving for him.

Even though we didn't have a lot to work with, (and no Turkey) we still had a great Thanksgiving. Look how happy he was...

Last year we spent Thanksgiving at my grandpa's. Its a tradition we have had for many years. Usually we start cooking early and take everything over to grandpas. We fill his island with all kinds of delicious things. Pot roast, ham, turkey, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole...oh my makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

I made pumpkin bars for the first time last year and grandpa LOVED them!

I can't wait...

This year, I am SO excited because, for as long as I can remember, I have wanted to see Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and then go to the famous department store for some Christmas browsing. This year we are DOING IT!!!! And then we are headed to New Jersey to spend the weekend with our family. I truly can't wait.

We have so much to be thankful this year. So many blessings upon our family. But I think one thing I have come to realize is how thankful I am for proximity. What? When we are so far away from loved ones (especially during the holidays) I think we realize how good we have it to be so close. So I am thankful for our family, our loved ones, and the impact they have on our lives.

I have lots to be thankful for. So much to thank the Lord for. Good thing He knows my heart, because it is cup runneth over...

In Gods Love,

Beau and Kenz
