i'm thankful that we have some things to make up for the nearly total lack of weather in this region:
1) there are flowers blooming all over the place. year round. it's beautiful.
2) we can go to the beach pretty much year round, too. 
today my boys are gleefully thankful for the rain that we are getting today and tomorrow. they splashed in puddles all the way home from school. 

our weekend:  

bake- 2 pies, potatoes, green beans, and a cheese ball.
visit - 3 couples and 3 kids at the Thomson's for Thanksgiving dinner (we created our own family-away-from-family)
visitors - old friends from college coming to hang on Friday
OO7 - yay! Saturday movie

Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!

That is a beautiful flower! Is it growing in the sand?
California is such a strange and interesting place.

well no... it had fallen off its little bush... but it did look just like that, laying there all pretty!
