Thanksgiving thoughts

This is a little out of order but that's because I am still using a 35mm camera and have not gone digital yet.  I need to wait for the billion photos to be developed.

I drew this on hotel stationary in my room on Thanksgiving and emailed it from my phone to my hubby.  I figured if he couldn't be with me I could at least let him know that I was thinking about him.  I fashioned my turkey after the ones you used to make as a kid by tracing your hand and adding feet and the cockscomb.  He called the day after I returned home and he mentioned that he got this...he thought it was cute and that he wants a new phone when he gets back so he can do goofy stuff like this.

I didn't take a photo before I sent it, but I also sent him a special present for Thanksgiving.....No they aren't nude photos but it was a tin with little leaves cut out in fall colours.  I wrote out a bunch of reasons for why I am thankful for him.  I also included a few from the dog for why she is thankful for him.  It was an idea I borrowed from someone else and I think it went over well.  He wants to try and do something like that back but he doesn't know how yet....he figured I didn't want a box of rocks since that's the most abundant supply of things other than sand.

....Saldy I happen to agree, no rocks but the sentiment is very nice.

that is a beautiful idea and I like the hubby's response. You go you two!

Awesome ideas! It makes me smile reading about other wives showing their deployed husbands how much they mean to them. Sadly enough, as you know, there are those who don't. (I've threatened to start a club for wives like us! lol) I couldn't even begin to tell you the silly things I've done in the past, but amazingly enough they've been big hits, too. How much longer does hubby have over there? If I read it, I've forgotten. (Nothing unusual there!) Let me know...I've got a few more ideas up my sleeve that I don't mind sharing. Didn't want to leave them here just in case he should read this. :-)
