Birthdays and Thanksgiving

My birthday crept up on me again this year.  The 18th I will officially be 59.  Honestly, I'm not sure what 59 should feel or look like, but as long as no one looks at my MRIs or x-rays, I think I look okay.

But I'm not the only birthday!  Nope our grand-daughter Bryce is going to turn a whole year old on the 22nd!

Fastest year ever.  Our Bryce is easily the cutest grand-daughter on the face of the earth.  Don't even try saying that's debatable!  How can anyone think otherwise with her parents being our son and daughter by marriage?

In this short year Bryce has gone from newborn to a giggling, cuddly beautiful soul who loves her brother, has a contagious and fun laugh and is just about to walk.  She also loves all the fur babies that are around, her cousins and loves to "boop" noses-just the way grandpa showed her to do.

Then, of course, we are celebrating Thanksgiving.  This will be a rather different "spread" as our kids have been changing their eating lifestyles and I for one am NOT going to put out things that will cause all their hard word to come to an end!  Adam is down to his high school weight and Sarah has been working very hard on changing her nutritional views as well.  Plus, Steve should really take a page out of his kids notebook and start listening to his doctor's caveats!

Our dinner this year?  Turkey breast and grilled ham.  Mashed cauliflower.  Roasted green beans/beats and walnuts with goat cheese, sugar free homemade cranberry sauce, sugar free/low carb desert. 

I think it sounds pretty yummy!  Maybe get a family walk in sometime during the day as well.

The next night some of our California family will be coming into town so we will celebrate Bryce's birthday then.  Mine?  Right on the 18th, barring any small snags.

I know this week is pretty short, but since Bryce shared her virus with me-I'm not really feeling all that great today.  It's not good when you can't think of drinking some ginger tea or eating toast.

It just better last no longer that the 48 hours Bryce had it because I'm just not all that thrilled with feeling and looking like Kermit the Frog (you know, the green thing).

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.  I'll be taking a minor break until December 1st.  Stay safe, stay healthy and may you all have a wonderful end to November.
