I have so much to be Thankful, health, shelter, food, work and friends.  This year was probably my hardest Thanksgiving though, I worked.  I picked my kids up at 8am and we went to my brothers.  I had planned to go out to breakfast(a nice breakfast) with my kids and brother but nothing was open.  We ended up at McDonalds.  Oh well...

We always have fun no matter where we go.  When the kids and I arrived at Eric's, they were excited to see him, but once I knocked on the door Ivan ran for the car screaming "Go home!!"  I got him inside and he sat on the chair and wouldn't talk to Eric.  Poor guy just wanted to go home.  It breaks my heart hearing him say "Go home!" 

After breakfast, Eric took the kids to our grandparents house to have a fabulous Thanksgiving with the family.  I about lost it as i was buckling the kids into his car.  They looked so cute in their Thanksgiving outfits and the realization that I would not be spending a FAMILY holiday with them. 

I got to work and the girls were all talking about their Thanksgiving dinners with their families.  The food that was made and how much fun they had with their families.  I lost it, I had to go and collect myself and think about the things I am thankful for.  My JOB!  I am thankful to have a job.  I opted to not have Thanksgiving off, so hopefully I get Christmas off!  That is a more important holiday to me to spend with my kids. 

I know holidays will be hard, and I have to remember what is important right now.  A job to be able to have the necessities to keep my family together!

Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving!  Now onto Christmas!!!
