i am thankful...

on nov. 5th, i tweeted (usage?) a pic of my cat lying down on my incomplete drawing of a tree.

i was drawing the tree for a crafty thanksgiving project at paloma's request. after the tree drawing was finished, i made umpteen gazillion leaves in fall colors. and for the past few weeks, we've been writing down what we are thankful for on the leaves and taping them onto the tree:



following is the random list of what we are thankful for (insert my commentary):

paloma:
G*d
love
our new house
the porkchop
the sea
school
grandma and lola (filipino grandmother)
daddy
mommy
hair (?!)
stella and bailey (our cats)
me (as in paloma, not me, as in mamazilla)
the moon
friends
family
earth
fire and warmth
thanksgiving
halloween
tv
hello kitty (wtf!!??)


porkchop:
all my friends at school
ms. suzen (his teacher)
my bed
everything
train DVDs
grandma
trains
my brown blankie
cars and trucks
airplanes
my brown stripe puppy (who isn't striped actually & changes gender daily)

mamazilla:
dreams
the love of family
the porkchop
the paloma
the thin man
chocolate
alcohol
indoor plumbing

(i would've wrote down more, but hello - i am a stay at home mom... i'm only rationed off a few minutes to utilize the indoor plumbing.)

the thin man:
well, he didn't write anything down.... not that he's not thankful for anything... he's just "above" all the crafty balderdash and gobbeldygook... and he has this irrational and paralyzing fear that if he so much as looks into a disembodied googley eye or slightly brushes by a fuzzy pipecleaner - he will be forever emasculated and/or possibly gelded by some unseen mystical crafting force.

happy, happy thanksgiving from our house to yours! :)

What a great project! And how can you even ask "wtf" about Hello Kitty??? Paloma's half Asian -- helLO!!! LOL

mamazilla said...

i love hello kitty... BUT...

HELLO!? the girl ranks hello kitty up there with the earth, fire and the sea... pleeeeease tell me you see the disconnect? ;)

Barb said...

Well...I'm a mom to kitties, not kiddies. Big difference -- cats aren't thankful for anything! ;-)

I'm definitely with you on the chocolate, for me, it has to be dark bittersweet chocolate...sooo good!
Paloma mentioned a new house...congratulations! Hope the move went well and you're all settled in.

barb - so true... cats are a thankless rude bunch. and yet we bow to their every whim...

angela - th new house is actually a new apartment. but i'm glad that she's not so sad about moving anymore. :) the move went relatively well and the stuff that isn't fitting into our smaller place is getting ready to move into a storage space. i feel another post abrewing... :)
