Happy Thanksgiving...From My Favorite Little Indian

From where I sit it is 7:00 pm Wednesday evening and as far as I am concerned......the long holiday weekend has begun! I LOVE, LOVE this time of year. I love turkey and stuffing and all the trimmings and I love the warm aroma that just envelopes the house. I love the time with family to reflect on the year and share what we are thankful for. Actually, I just asked Luke what he was thankful for and his quick response was,"My friends and family". Truly, what could be better! I too am so thankful for my family....in fact each Thanksgiving Toby reminds me of a little story that occurred before we were even a family....and my fingers keep typing so I guess I am going to share that story :). Before Toby and I were engaged and he and I were "ring shopping" we came across a ring that I thought could be "the one" so I put it on my finger and stretched my hand out in front of me to take a look at it...and I guess I had a dreamy look on my face so Toby asked me what I was thinking. I laugh now thinking about it because it is such a "Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus" moment as I am sure he was thinking more about how much $$ it was going to cost him, but my response to him was, "I am trying to picture myself stuffing a Thanksgiving turkey with this ring on, for our future family". LOL. And, yes, I will be stuffing a Thanksgiving turkey for my family and my beautiful boys that I absolutely, absolutely adore....with THAT ring on my finger! ...and yes Toby will remind me tomorrow of the story and we'll laugh and look around at our little family that we could only have imagined back then....and we'll be ever so grateful and thankful!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone
from the Foreman's and our cute little Indian.

These pictures were taken at his school "corn feast parade".

My favorite little Indian

This was when he first spotted me, lol,...I tried to hide at first so he would walk in the parade.
