Thanksgiving at Mom's.......just as it should be. We spent the entire day. Eli brought his guitar and Brent played it while we sang along with every Elvis song on my iPod after we all foundered on Mom's huge meal.
Danny and I revealed our news today to the family so I guess it's now safe to reveal it to you all. We are now foster parents. I am ready to get this training started so we can hurry up and begin this next journey. I feel if I can't complete college right now and get my degree to help children, then this is the next best thing. Possibly even better, and more in need. My heart is full at the thought. A big ole thanks to my foster parent friends who helped us make this choice.
Tomorrow we will start Christmas Decorating. Christmas will be here again this year. I'm ready. Sorda. Maybe.
I hope today was full of great food and lots of knitting and Elvis for you all as well.
