Celebrating THANKSGIVING

Hello again Friends!!!  I sincerely hope everyone one of you who celebrate the day of *THANKS* had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday alongside your loved ones. :)  Ours was really special as I took my 4 kids into NEW YORK City for the  Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  If you've never been to it yet, its definitely something to experience amidst an incredible crowd of  3.5 Million People!!!!!!  :)  The Parade itself is absolutely awesome and soooo much FUN to see!!!  After the fabulous Parade ended, the kids and I went on a road trip to visit Grandma & Grandpa in Pennsylvania to enjoy a big delicious Thanksgiving Meal. We thanked GOD for all of our wonderful blessings, for our families around the world, for our great friends, and for protecting Daddy while he is deployed.  Then we ate and ate and ate !!! :)   

Below are 3 FALL/Thanksgiving Cards that I recently created;

Awesome card, America...and I'm totally jealous that you got to go into NYC to see the parade in person! How awesome! Someday I hope to do that...NYC or Philly.
