Well, I just finished plucking the seeds from the pomegranates for "Dixie Salad" as it's called around my house and since Melissa was sleeping and I wasn't really thinking about much, I decided to count how many seeds were in the pomegranate.
Melissa has really been wanting to do some sort of prize give away on the blog and so I figure this is the perfect opportunity. The person closest to guessing the number of seeds in pomegranate #3 from tonight gets the satisfaction of a job well done and an increase of character.
ps - dixie salad is really good, it's made with apples, bananas, pomegranates and whipped cream.
pss - the word for "grenade" comes from (pome)granate
FAST FORWARD to actual Thanksgiving morning. I (melissa) am awake...and have been awake since 3 somthing a.m. Why? I fell asleep at 7:00 p.m. That will mess up your sleeping schedule.
So, in the wee hours this morning I found this video. All I can say is this...it made me a little teary. And when I just showed it Aaron, it made him shed a tear or two. Maybe because it's the season of our lives that we're in, or that they found something on our little baby's heart that is sometimes seen in babies with Down Syndrome and the days we spent preparing for that possibility (we just got the results back, nothing looks abnormal at this point with our teeny tiny baby)... Well, we are just grateful right now and this video was touching.
I thought this would be an appropriate thing to post on this special day of Thanksgiving. It makes me think of the sacrifices those around me have made in my behalf (and Aaron's, of course). Thanks to all the good people in our lives. We love you. Enjoy.
