Thankful Post and Pumpkin Redford Recipe

Happy weekend all!  The weather has been absolutely beautiful this week and I'm hoping that the rain in the forecast will hold off until after the Wabash/DePauw football game has ended.  If you aren't familiar with the Monon Bell game, click here for more info. 

I'm trying to be consistently with my thankful posts and I'll recap the first 11 days of November and then add yesterday and today:  

1.   for hugs everyday from Ryan. 
2.   my back feels so much better :)
3.   my husband fixing our stove - now I can make more muffin top cookies.
4. if I would use them regularly, I would save even more money.
5.   for Kyle and his wonderful smile :D
6.    Ryan and how he enjoys playing basketball.  His first game was great!
7.    Rock Point Church...the service on Sunday was awesome!
8.    Coupons....I love how much money I save by using them.
9.    The start of a new grading period.  I hope this six weeks is better than the last one.
10.  Yoga class, no matter how hard it can be, I know my body feel better after class is over.
11.  Our Veterans and the sacrifices they have made.
12.  My dad and the time I got to spend with him and all the lessons he taught me. It was one year ago today that he passed away and I can't believe how fast time has gone.

13.  Good friends that are strong and willing to help move a piano :)
