Few of My Favorite Things...

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I decided to create a list of some of the things I'm grateful for. Of course, I'm grateful for and to God, my Dad, my Mom, my sister and my Grandpa, as well as all of my friends (I won't even attempt to name you all here because I'll surely forget someone). Of course I'm also grateful for my health, that I have a roof over my head and food in my cupboards. But, those major things aside, I created a list of the 'little things' I'm grateful for this time of year.

* Thanksgiving leftovers
* Sitting in the dark with just the Christmas Tree lights on
* Sound of rain on the roof
* Leaves changing colors and the crunching sound they make when I walk on them
* Baking my Grandma's Christmas Sugar Cookie recipe
* Time off from work!
* Christmas music playing 24/7 on the radio station- especially the old school Bing Crosby, Nate King Cole, Irving Berlin, etc.
* Seeing the Christmas ornaments I made back in elementary school
* Houses decorated with lights- especially the over-the-top decorations
* Eggnog Lattes
* Christmas movies- especially 'It's a Wonderful Life', Christmas Story and 'Nat'l Lampoon's Christmas Vacation'
* Animated/clay-mation versions of Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, etc.
* Sound of jingle bells
* Putting up the Christmas decorations

Those are a few of my favorites this time of year...I'm sure there are many more that I'm forgetting.
