Giving Thanks

Once again... I am lagging behind on my posts.  Staying on top of these blog posts may just have to be one of my many goals in 2013....But for now...let's take a look back at our Thanksgiving.  I saw so many amazing cookie posts from all my cookie blogging friends...but we went with these simple turkey cookies for our Thanksgiving treats this year inspired by Hey Cookie.

Baking is really just a hobby for me....something I enjoy....but my real joy comes from these three little people in my life!  

Some days I feel like pulling my hair out...but I wouldn't trade it for the world.  And after the heartbreaking events in Connecticut this past weekend....I feel especially fortunate that He chose me to be the Mommy to these very special little angels in my life.

My heart is saddened for the children who lost their lives too early, and for the families whose lives will never be the same.  I hope that if any lesson can be learned from this horrific tragedy....it is one of hope....a hope that we can all be reminded just how delicate life is...and how we can't take a single moment in time for granted.
