This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

My girls are on their way home from school today. We've got some shopping, cooking, cleaning and various other "getting ready" activities to do for our family "feast" on Thursday. (Including putting away, aka "hiding," my scrap supplies which are scattered all over my dining room LOL)
Although today it is 60+ degrees (amazing) it sounds like it will look & feel like winter by the weekend.

How about one more Thanksgiving file?

Available at Cutters Market.

Who knew a little piece of paper cutting machinery would lead to meeting so many neat people! Thank you blogger friends for visiting and allowing me to get acquainted with you! Just call me Blessed with a capital B!

**The 12 Days of Thanksgiving**
On the 1st day of Thanksgiving … We give thanks for the feast in front of us – fresh, hot turkey & dressing, mashed potatoes & gravy, vegetables, salad, rolls & a card table full of cakes & pies.
On the 2nd day of Thanksgiving … we bless the cold turkey sandwiches, mixed vegetables, mixed salads, hard rolls & scraps of pie & cake.
On the 3rd day of Thanksgiving ... someone asks Mom what kind of pie she’s made. “Turkey pot pie,” she proudly replies. We give thanks…sort of.
On the 4th day of Thanksgiving … Mom pours a can of mushrooms over the turkey chunks & broth & crowns it, turkey a la king. We thank our forefathers for not promoting buffalo for Thanksgiving. If they had, we’d be eating buffalo a la kind – in April.
On the 5th day of Thanksgiving … Mom cubes some more bird, stirs in some cracker crumbs & cheese & puts it in a casserole dish. We pray for a glimpse of the turkey’s naked carcass.
On the 6th day of Thanksgiving … Mom throws cashew over turkey & calls it cashew turkey. We rue the day we took her to that fancy Chinese restaurant.
On the 7th day of Thanksgiving … Mom set her stew pot on the table. It’s swimming with turkey lumps & vegetables. We express our gratitude for the large box of crackers that cloaks the foul taste.
On the 8th day of Thanksgiving … Mom goes Italian & sets turkey pizza before us. We pluck the turkey nuggets from their mozzarella shroud & hide them in our napkins until the coast is clear.
On the 9th day of Thanksgiving … Mom spreads turkey tips over lettuce & calls it a chief salad in honor of old Squanto, who gave the pilgrims all those nice corn-planting & turkey-hunting tips.
On the 10th day of Thanksgiving … Mom threads turkey & veggies onto skewers & calls them turkey kabobs. We pray they’ll catch fire under the broiler & become flaming kabobs.
On the 11th day of Thanksgiving … Mom laces noodles with turkey & tomato sauce & boldly calls it turkey lasagna. We gobble it gratefully because the turkey’s rib cage is in sight.
On the 12th day of Thanksgiving … Mom apologizes for running out of turkey leftovers so soon.

Happy Turkey Days!!
