I wish I had time to list even just some of the things I am grateful for this year. Most of all, of course, I thank God for my husband and children, and for the health, safety, and wellbeing of us all. And I am thankful that the kids are all still young and home for all the holidays!
Hope you all have a wonderful and blessed day with your loved ones.

Miriam, my beautiful daughter and enthusiastic kitchen helper, made apple pie with me last week. Can you guess which one is hers and which one is mine? She thought the apples were added after the crust was baked, and was a little disappointed when she realized her mistake. Becky and the boys were happy to eat her "lattice top" though, so she was happy with it after all.
