God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."

What kind of photographer am I ;( I managed to not get one picture of the table, turkey or all the family together I did get some really great photos of Mikaela. I need to finish getting them cleaned up.

We had a nice Thanksgiving a little lonely with only Sabrina and Brian with Mikaela here. This was Jerod and Erin's yr with her mom and step dad. But, they will all be in for Christmas so that will be wonderful.

Sabrina, Brian and Mikaela are celebrating Thanksgiving with Brian's parents today. I miss them the house is awfully quiet.

I have some pictures ready to print. I'm going to print one in 5 x 7 and try to do a very very simple layout with lots of white space. Usually I can't manage those types of layouts but we shall see how I do.

I'm usually a much more detailed type of scrapper.

I went shopping on Friday and finished up everything but one more thing for Erin and Jerod and the Savings Bonds for the girls.

I can't believe Christmas is less then a month away. I've decided I'm not going to put up and tree and do all the decorating that I usually do. I put up my little Mickey Village it's has a cute little Christmas tree and it all decorated up so I think it will serve just fine. We spend most of Christmas day at my mom's so we don't really need a tree down here.

Next yr we will celebrate Christmas at Sabrina's. She said she didn't want to drag Mikaela down here next yr she wants her to have her Christmas traditions at home. That works fine for me...Mom and I will drive up and take pies and stuff up with us. She also said if they were moved in their house they want Thanksgiving there too! Which would work out great...I'll just spend the night and do my Christmas shopping from there :)

BTW, WVU is winning they are wiping UConn off the face of the map :( I was hoping UConn would win it would help OSU move up in the BCS poll. But, they still have a chance of moving up. I would love to see OSU back in the Championship game! They had an amazing season Big 10 Champs and only one loss all season! Considering this was supposed to be a rebuilding yr I think we did wonderful.

Well I'm going to get off of here and see if I can get something done in my scrap room. I hope everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.

Love to all and God Bless,

We went to visit family for the holiday and maybe took 2 pictures, so you are doing a little bit better than us. Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!
