I am thankful for...

Thanksgiving was extra special, since we unexpectedly got to share it with my niece, who I hadn't seen since her birthday in August.

Later, at my brother's house, she rediscovered the Christmas tree with an appropriate amount of awe. I really just want to hug her constantly.

Sigh. It's been said before, but: How great is Thanksgiving? Great food, all the people you love in one room, hugs all around.

I don't know about you, but I'm not quite ready to return to the real world just yet.

Work, you are a cruel, cruel mistress. If tomorrow wasn't Saturday, and I wasn't still totally full of Thanksgiving warm-fuzziness, I would punch you right in the face.

That picture. . . the one with you and your niece? Yeah, that gave me warm fuzzies. :) Thank you.

She's a doll :) I LOVE the Christmas tree. It looks exactly like one should.

N, believe it or not, my brother and SIL got the entire thing, tree and all, from the dollar store. I'm so proud -- he's not normally so thrifty. :)
