I love this holiday. It’s all about family, friends and food, three of my favorite things!

This year Thanksgiving was at my house and I had 20 people coming for dinner. Not a big deal except that we only decided it would be at my house yesterday!

I have rallied the troops and dinner just went down and it was fabulous. I am filled with joy and gratitude for all the blessings in my life. I have 2 wonderful children, a boyfriend I adore, the two beautiful children he has brought into our home, my family, my friends, and my newest baby, www.designbySig.com

I am also grateful for my ex-husband and truly blessed that we are BEST FRIENDS and have always put the needs of our boys first. It has been a huge accomplishment that we have united as friends to raise our truly magnificent children. Sadly, this perfect day was also filled with fear.

My oldest son, who I love more than I can ever explain, has decided he wants to help in the kitchen. The mere thought was almost too much to bear. I love him but trust me when I tell you the kitchen is the last place on earth this child should be. I was secretly praying he gets distracted by football, or his brother, or the dog, or an earthquake. It would be easier to clean up after an earthquake than after an hour of having this boy in the kitchen.

Dear Lord give me strength. It is a feast over here with all the traditional Thanksgiving items, in addition to some Israeli goodies thrown in for good measure.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. May your day be filled with laughter, joy, and no fear!

Peace and Love. Sig
