Oh! Thank Cuteness!

Yeh, so I'm not in the US and we don't do Thanksgiving over in the motherland (that's Great Britain to those that didn't figure it out already) but the folks over at GenQ had a fun idea for this holiday and I had to join in. I actually found myself saying the other day 'oh, you really shouldn't put your Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving is over' to which the person I was talking to looked really perplexed, I'm sure it won't be long before we join in - maybe I'll cook a chicken or something this Thursday...I'm not sure I can do turkey twice in a month with Christmas coming up so fast (I really, really don't like turkey).

These little creatures are what I am most thankful for. They're the reason I do what I do. Without them I'd be working some two-bit crap job I hate. I thank the childerbeasts for being born and giving me a reason to stay home, which has led to me quilting and for doing stuff I never thought I'd be able to do.

And for the furry babies, thank you for testing my quilts and ensuring they are always suitably covered in pet hair. Maybe I'm not so thankful for those particular traits, especially when I have to wash gift quilts a couple of times to be sure they're fluff free.

his cuteness makes me weep

But in all seriousness, I am so very thankful that these kids can brighten up any day by a simple look. Especially the girly one. She has the ability to make me crumble into fits of giggles with the slightest of eyebrow raises. (The one on the left may as well be mine, she isn't, but she's like my other daughter, and I am as thankful for her as I am the other 'real' kids).

Awwww, love it. We don't do formal Thanksgiving but having lived in the US for 5 years before coming home, I do feel rather wistful nostalgia for it. It's a lovely holiday.

I'm so glad I visit you here for cute kids and mildly scandalous comments (thanks Lu). My day wouldn't be complete without it.

Sweet post! I truly want to snuggle those two kitties. And Lu's comment? Fabulous.

lovely post Katy ... and I find cute quite a difficult concept ...

I love the whole concept of thanksgiving and that's something we really really don't have here in the UK ...

I hate turkey too.

Maureen T. said...

Thanks for the wonderful post! Your children (both the non and the fur bearing) are precious and beautiful.

Jake said...

Whether you do it or not the Brit way, I am thankful FOR YOU! Have a great day tomorrow and if you want some turkey, come on over!!
