Thanksgiving. . . .

What are we thankful for this year? Let's see: Barring a few times when he was sick, the Boy has slept through the night for a whole year now. Dragon Slippers arrived in stores, and is doing very well. It was a Booksense pick for the summer, and one of Amazon.com's Best Books of the Year So Far! We finished half of our basement, giving my parents a real bedroom to sleep in when they visit, and the Boy a place to strew toys about with abandon. I finally took a cake decorating class, and I'm not bad at it! We had our tenth wedding anniversary! This is a lot of exclamation points! But to continue, I'm thankful for: pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, Naomi Novik's fourth Temeraire book, Stardust in movie and book form. Fabulous sequels like Love is a Many-Trousered Thing, Titan's Curse, and Knuffle Bunny Too. My family, who retain their greatness and move up to new heights of awesome all the time. Happy Thanksgiving!
