So thankful

It's been a while since I've posted, but I decided that today is the day to stop and take a minute to say hello, provide a little update, and share a few of the reasons we have to be thankful in this house.

Check out the carrot haul. It won't feed our 19 guests, but these babies will provide some good snacking over the next few days.  Who knows why they're stunted? I don't.

Our bathroom is finally done.  Well, mostly, with the exception of a few nagging touch-ups and final details that we can't seem to finish,
because we jumped right into another project, repairing the kitchen ceiling before Thanksgiving, which led to...We might as well get recessed lighting if we're going to be patching the ceiling...and, then we might as well add moulding to the top of the cabinets if we're going to be painting the ceiling...and we might as well remove the cabinet above the microwave and raise it up (its former low position wasn't up to code) if we're doing the moulding...
That's just a preview.  More on both projects, coming soon.

With those two projects behind us, we're clear to focus on the next matter at hand, the bedroom next to the upstairs bathroom.  And, we have a tight deadline, because that room is going to have a new occupant as of the end of January.  That's right.  There's more than a turkey in the Good Better Nest oven.  We're expecting an addition to the family, and for that, we are most thankful.

Wishing you and your families a wonderful holiday- 
Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Morning After Thanksgiving!
Wonderful post!
I'm betting the January turkey is waaay cuter than the November bundle of joy. See what you can do about that, won't you?
Lots of love from the Florida Family Bird

Lots of love from across the Ocean!
