Hallmark Channel

I have always been one of those people who really loves Christmas BUT also enjoys Thanksgiving and usually don’t want to miss out on the Thanksgiving decorations and festivities to get straight to Christmas.  This year is a little different.  I am still looking forward to Thanksgiving.  We do have a ‘Thankful Pumpkin’ in the center of the table and the walls will continue to be covered with turkeys, Indian corn and pilgrims.  Hand prints and Foot prints will be turned into feathers and turkey bodies.  And the meal itself will be thoroughly enjoyed by all.

      So today, I am thankful for my TV….thankful for cable and especially thankful for Christmas movies.
