If you click her second clip of the podcast at you can hear her say my name, the name of my blog, and my question with Jon’s answer! Thanks so much Janice for using my question!!!!

Random things that I am thankful for in 2008: Beware, I am getting a little more personal than I normally do in this post! My friends… I have the greatest groups of friends. They all mean so much to me and I feel blessed to have them in my life. I believe that each person is put in your life for a reason and no friendship is a mistake! My parents… I thank God every day for my mom and dad. I have the greatest set of parents who love me unconditionally. Not to mention they are the best grandparents ever. Plus they have a great marriage which I look up to. My husband is my soul mate. Sure we...

My friend Jennifer S. has been so creative lately… I had to share two of her creations: The first is little pinatas shaped like ornaments. You could make these and stuff them with lottery tickets and place on each guests plate on Christmas Eve… They could crack them open see if they were a big winner. Lastly are these cute Jello Jigglers shaped like candy canes. She used whip cream for the stripes. Very cute Jennifer… Thanks for sharing with the blogging world!

My menu is set and I need to shop now. Here’s my menu with links to the recipes I will use. Menu Holiday Cranberry Sauce – Simple but good! I once made one of those fancy cranberry sauces and it was too much for my taste. Truthfully, I like the stuff that comes out of the can too! Turkey Stuffing/Dressing – I use the recipe here. I add water chestnuts & pine nuts to it. When I worked at Houlihan’s in my younger years, the stuffing they made for their Thanksgiving dinner was so good and it had water...

My friend Amy gave me this idea years ago and we use it every year. When it snows and the kids want to play in the snow and you don’t… bring the snow inside for loads of fun. This is a picture from last year. FROM AMY:I don’t know about you but I wasn’t as excited about the snow as my kids were this morning. My children were convinced that it is time to sled ride and build snowmen. I tried to tell them that there isn’t enough snow. They weren’t convinced… .until we stood outside waiting for buses and then they realized they couldn’t go very far...
