I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Rom 12:1-2

Happy birthday to me!

Today is my birthday!  I have never been a big birthday celebrator.  In fact today I am going to "celebrate" by making several pies for Thanksgiving and doing some laundry.  We will cut into the pies tonight, some friends are coming over, and I don't have to cook dinner, so it is all good.  I truly couldn't be happier (unless Jovie's grant fund was to go up).  Thanksgiving week is my very favorite time of year.  I received the sweetest cards from my kiddos and, of course, I received the best present of all when Super-T's adoption was finalized on Friday.

The highlight of the day was when the judge let Super-T sit in his chair and hold the gavel.  Super-T immediately banged it on the judge's microphone.  Fortunately the judge had a great sense of humor and my brother was able to capture the moment.  I love the expression on LOTL's face!  He gets such a kick out of his brother sometimes.

Now I am officially and legally "mom" to three wonderful kiddos!  I am truly blessed!

I have so much to be thankful for this year!  What are you thankful for?
