Well today is thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for. I am thankful for my wonderful family, our amazing friends. Really, this is one of the few times in my life where i can say I am truly content and that is a nice feeling.
A quiet afternoon walk with Miz Sassafrass-yes-I-am-two Davy Beach. I had to get over my own personal terror of earth worms to show Davy haw harmless they are. I don’t want Davy to inherit my neurotic squeamishness. I don’t think she bought it for a second
Some morning yoghurt with a post-bantu knot faux hawk and much much yogurt.
Tanta Ari brought Otombo all the way from South Africa to Davy. She loves her! Although apparently Otombo was quite nervous about meeting Davy, but relieved that there were no lions living in the house.
Hide and seek (shhhhh hiding)
My mom deserves her own blog post. Watching her and Davy play is pure magic.

My husband is truly the worlds best cook. He is amazing and made the whole meal. It’s how he shows love

I have enjoyed this 30 days of thanks. It is my nature to complain until the cows come home. It’s been nice for me to constantly have to think about the little nice moments. The year between thanksgiving 2011 and 2012 has really truly been one of the happiest years of my life. I love our little family. I love you Andy Beach. I love you Davy Beach. I am proud and happy to be your wife and mother.
Today I am thankful for a few hours to craft. I finished my friend Courtney’s birthday quilt. I can’t post photos here because she is one of the only people who actually reads my blog. But that said, I love it. Might be my favorite yet. Courtney- here is the sneak peak at the back
I picked up some glorious yarn to start a hat for Erica’s holiday gift
here is the pattern
I had to buy myself these socks

I talked to a friend who I worked with 12 years ago. I called her out of the blue. I loved hearing her voice!
Tonight we went over to our friends the Rooneys. Davy spent no less then 45 chasing handsome Abe Rooney around their dining room table. There were gigantic cackles, lots of falls and SO much laughter. Really, it was something to see. Davy’s kid personality is emerging as a rough and tumble tough girl.She has a big loud laugh (just like her momma) She loves her Abe Rooney. She will let Abe carry her around like a little rag doll. At some point she hooked her legs around his waist and I said it looked like a scene from Officer and a Gentleman. We all laughed.
Laughter, family, friends, crafting, our quirky city. I really do have so much to be thankful for. Really, truly thankful.
We really really irrationally thankful for everyone who turned out to help ring in Davy’s third year on this earth. Really thankful for the wonderful people at Enat’s Kitchen who let us overrun the place. Really thankful for all the chocolate cake that was left over….
