For Thanksgiving we have three lunches/dinners. I’m making pumpkin pie, cranberry salad, and crescent rolls. I even have a bottle of Pino Grigio to bring to one!
But I’m a fan of making things from scratch especially for special events and holidays. I vividly remember the smell of fresh cinnamon rolls and crescent rolls from my childhood. Every holiday my mom would be lovingly cooking up one of our favorites to bring along to Grandma’s. And they were so good that you literally fought for some!
So here’s the surprisingly simple recipe that every Thanksgiving dinner table should garnish!
One way we show our children love is through buying them toys. And it’s not all bad. It’s natural to give tangible gifts as signs of affection. What an easy way to brighten a small person’s day!
But how do you know if your kids have too many toys? What are their favorite toys? For our boys, cars, trucks, tractors, and trains. The rest of the toys tend to get thrown, scattered, and stepped on! OUCH!
My husband and I found out toys have seasons. And in those seasons, kids have a few favorites that they tend to play with. Especially if it’s something new.
So what do we do when one toy seems to be in the end stages of it’s season? We buy more! Which is kind of nuts when you think about it.
Thank you so much for following me! Here’s a bit about me:
My name is Anna.
My dreams in my teenager years were to be a photographer and travel. My first real job was as a little league photographer. Several other photography jobs later and I was working in productions in a studio. I had no idea what was ahead of me.
I really wanted to share this post because it’s exactly why I started blogging. I had a rough year that changed my life. I was so impacted because I was minding my own business, doing ok. Then life just happened. I did nothing to deserve any of it.
Thank you to all my lovely readers who have encouraged me!
I’m reblogging this post, hoping to encourage all of you. It’s been recently edited, but still holds so much value for moms. Please share this goodness!
I may not have always understood you, but now as I raise my own family, I see much more clearly. I have a deeper love and respect for you because I know you gave all of yourselves to us, even when my siblings and I didn’t know it.
