I've been tagged by Kellie!  I always wanted to be tagged, so I'm really excited about this=)
I did the quiz before I read through your answers Kellie, because I was afraid it would influence the originality of my answers - I've been known to do that - so, any similarities are strictly coincidental...
~Thoughtful Thankfulness~
1.  List three things you wouldn't want to live without - the Bible, animals, music
2.  Name something you had to do without recently - kleenex (I don't know if that's spelled correctly, but I don't really care...)
3.  What are you most thankful for that you consider a luxury? - my horse
4.  Name the item you use the most throughout your day - hair bandies
5.  What would you do without the item listed in #4? - I'd probably have to use string or ribbon, which would be really annoying.
6.  Name something that you use in the kitchen that you are thankful for - our food processor
7.  What is (one of ) the best earthly gift(s) you ever received? - my horse
8.  Name a completly random thing you are thankful for - my nose
9.  How often do you think about the item listed in #8? - a lot, because I have an extreme dislike for my nose, but if I didn't have it, I couldn't smell all of the lovely scents and smells that God gave us!
10.  Name something you recently acquired, that you have wanted for a long time - a brown corduroy skirt
11.  Would you rather have #4, or #7? - definitely #7!  (I had a different answer for #7 at first, so this answer was slightly messed up...sorry:)
12.  Name one of your favorite things - Bonnie
13.  Look around the room you are in, and name three things you enjoy in it - the computer, the phone, the kitchen table
14.  List two things that you use to do chores that you are thankful for - mud boots and buckets
15.  Name something that you sometimes wish you didn't have in your life, that you would miss dreadfully if it were taken away - umm...Alex? kidding!;D  Maybe my animals...there are sometimes I really wish they could just feed themselves so I wouldn't have to go outside when it's cold, wet and muddy:)
16.  Post a picture (or two) of something you are thankful for! - only two?!  I think not...
(in no particular order...)
My family - Mom's side
My family - Dad's side
My brother:)
My Cuz:)
The opportunity to be a witness for Christ through music
My sheep
Idaho - I wasn't born here, but I got here as fast as I could!  And, Lord willing, I'll never have to leave it...except for trips to North Carolina, and Scotland (hopefully) someday:)
Peppy, my "adopted" little brother, who's not so little anymore (a fact he is very proud of:)
Big, strong brothers, especially when they help with hay=)
God's incredible creation
I am blessed beyond measure...
I could go on and on, and I'm sure there are things I've forgotten to mention, but that's okay.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

We have so much to be thankful for!  God has blessed us with a beautiful country, loving parents, wonderful family members, and great friends... 
I love picutures: #3, #4, #5, #8, #9, #12, #14, and #15!
What are you guys doing today??  We are just staying at home...  Very quite... 
Sarah and Kent were not able to come home this year, and it looks like they will not be able to come home for Christmas either!
Hope you have a great day!
P.s.  Noses, mine is nothing but freckles..  O.K. maybe not that bad.... But, I don't really relish mine...  lol jk

My Grandpa and Grandma drove over from Washington and had Thanksgiving dinner with us.  We always have a good time with them:) 
I hope Sarah and Kent will be able to come for Christmas! 
P.S. Noses are just...strange...they look weird, but we'd look weird without them, so I guess it's a good thing we have them=)

This is fun!  
Good idea, not looking at my answers until afterwards - just the same, they sure are similar!  ;)
I hope y'all had  a wonderful Thanksgiving!

It is fun!  I adore quizs, especially if they're thought provoking, as yours was:)
Actually, our answers weren't as similar as I thought they might be - the horse theme was the only obvious similarity;)
Oops - I just noticed that I messed up on question #11!  I had my serger down for answer #7 originally, but then I went, "wait, what about Bob?!"=)  As much as I like hair bandies, I'd have to go with #7:)
Thank you, we did - my grandparents came over, and we had a very nice time. 
I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving as well:)

I looks like they are not... Kent has some training in the east somewhere, and she is going to try and fly to visit him...

But, it looks like they are coming home in March before he deploys.. His tour is 18 months this time!

18 months?!  Wow, I can't even imagine how hard that must be for Sarah.
I hope she'll be able to fly out and see him.  I'll be praying for them.

Aww, Cuz, you are entirely too sweet and generous!
I'm so glad you thought my post was nice enough to put on your blog, and I'm quite pleased:)
If I'm ever feeling blue, I'll read what you wrote about me, and take comfort in the knowledge that my cousin thinks I'm both brilliant and an incredible writer.  Warm fuzzies:)
You are so special and dear to me, Abbie.
Love you very much,
P.S. And, for the record, you're the brilliant writer, Cuz:)
