3 years of schmarm and turkey comics


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
We hope everybody has a lovely day of Turkey-Goodness.
Just a few of our many blessings for which we are ever Thankful:
Our beautiful girls, and the joy they bring us daily.
Our loving and funny family; full of warmth, generosity, and just a pinch of bizarre, they are always there for us.
Those bag-clip snappy things from Ikea that have simplified kitchen life.
Fold-down seats in the mini-van.
Healthcare reform.
The Daily Show.
Christmas Music.
Bob's new job, and the ability we both have to go to work and do something we love.
A-1 sauce (this is more a Meg thing).
"Cool Cars" (Mario Kart Wii).
A country where being born white and rich isn't a prerequisite for being president.
Students who practice.
Sandra Boynton books. Ooooh, snuggle puppy of mine...
Weekend mornings spent in jammies.
Mulan, because she can kick the other princess's @$$!
National Public Radio.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee creamer.

  • For bulleted lists.
  • For a potty-trained kid.
  • For a heart-healthy baby.
  • For knowing that there are far more good people in the world than bad.
  • For the random child who hugs a random teacher "just cause".
  • For people who love my kids as I do.
  • For fabulous books and the time to read (some of) them.
  • For a husband who is even more than the sum of his "Dad", "Husband", "Teacher", "Friend", "Love of My Life" labels. 
  • For meeting so many good people who heap love on sick kids as much as do their mothers.
  • For teachers who think about their students as if they were their own kids.
  • For cheese of all varieties. 
  • For showing my youngest snow on Thanksgiving morning while her sister twirls in it, outside, in her jammies.

All of the above, pretty much, and just a few additions:
  1. From preparing ridiculous amounts of stuffing, to teaching instrumental music: for being able to branch out and try something new.
  2. Friends and family who love and put up with us support us through old and new endeavors. 
  3. Improved health and happiness for a lot of people I know, including my own little family.
  4. My own little family, and for PBS kids being on TV Thanksgiving morning.
  5. Oooh, I gotta have 5? I'm going right back to that Pumpkin Spice creamer. 
Thank Goodness.

And just because it's wrong:
This is why I will make the stuffing, but not the turkey.
