Wishing You Helmets of Thanksgiving Joy (and stuffing)

Dear Readers,
This is the season for expressing thankfulness. I'm all about expressing. I express hints about certain goodies for my birthday. I express milk. My sister works at Express. I express milk. I refuse to iron so my poor husband's shirts are ex-pressed. I express milk. I'm all about expressing thoughts. But then, you knew that didn't you?

Mostly I can get off track like an Express train down the wrong side of a mountain. Like just now. I meant to talk about thankfulness.
Blame the milk bit on the wayfaring train. It carried me away.
I'm thankful for this boy.

Here he is riding a motorcycle.

He is sweet and imaginative.

"Come-on, Harley Mama, Let's go for a ride!"

He knows all the right sounds.

Best of all, he looks like his daddy. A Carharrt and jeans. Doesn't get much better.

[Elvis Voice] Thank you!

Thank you very much!

I want you to know that I am thankful for a lot of other things, including my other two children.
I've just always had a thing for a motorcycle man.

I do mean always.

I hope your Thanksgiving is lovely and lively, overfilling and fulfilling. And if you are as lucky as me, maybe you'll be sharing it with your own little motorcycle man.

Helmets of joy to you all.
Thankful in NE


  1. Rae,

    Hoping you have a wonderful Thanksgiving too!

  2. I have a big thing for little cowboys..(and my big cowboy)

    Happy thanksgiving to your family from ours!

  3. We can hardly wait to see you all tomorrow....AND to SING the big birthday song to you.
    Yes, dear readers of Rae's blog, she didn't tell you (even tho some of you relatives do know) She turns 25 tomorrow.

  4. p.s.
    Wonder where in the world that little JJ is by now? Maybe he has a little motorcycle man of his own too. You sure looked cute together, and he is gazing adoringly at you even tho you only liked him because of the motorcycle?

  5. Happy Thanksgiving!(tomorrow)


  6. I missed your birthday?! Happy Birthday, darlin'. And Happy Belated Thanksgiving, too. Hope both were everything you dreamed and much, much more.

  7. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, too, Rae. I'm behind on your posts, but just love them. Your kids are so imaginative... wonder where in the world they get it?


Thank you for stopping by. Your comments make me smile.
