Sunrise, Sunset

My "what I'm thankful" list below was true and accurate, but now I need to add to the list.

We had a fun and relaxing Thanksgiving day, beginning (for me) at 6:29 a.m. with the Turkey Trot.  This is an annual event sponsored by our high school wrestling team; they are required to do a 4 mile run that morning and they encourage the public to join them with a choice of running or walking.  I did the 4 mile walk which is impressive first because I AM NOT a morning person, and second because I'm really out of shape.

Later in the day we went to my parent's house for an AWESOME dinner and a really great time.  My great-nephew provided the entertainment (he's 5) with so many one-liners I can't even remember them all.  Along with the meal we had good wine, pistachios (my personal fav) and a spirited discussion about Jon & Kate +8 (Dan, you are WRONG).  Ahem.

The afternoon ended with the sunset of a lifetime.  Can you believe this picture?  My parent's live on a lake and we saw this sunset from their porch.  WOW.  How can a person not be thankful after that?

The only negative for the whole day was that my daughter wasn't there (she's across the country in college) and I missed her like crazy.  She will be home in just 22 days for a whole month and I can't wait.

I hope your holiday was wonderful as well.  I'm working on a new embellishment set that I'm really excited about!  You will have a chance to win the set later this week when I sponsor a blog challenge.  More on that later!
