Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, my friends, it is here. The day before Thanksgiving. I love this day. It is a day of quiet preparation and anticipation. The turkey is thawing, the stuffing bread is waiting to be cut and dried, the pumpkin pies are waiting to be baked, and the holiday tablecloth is all ready to be ironed.

Tonight we will finish all the preparations, eat some Mexican takeout...I never cook the night before Thanksgiving...and settle in together. Thanksgiving morning we will eat turnovers and cinnamon rolls in our jammies while we watch The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. We will work together to prepare our meal...Steve and I are in charge of the turkey and gravy, Nicolas and Rhett will make the mashed potatoes, Peyton is making green bean casserole, Madison is doing her sweet potato casserole, and Flynn is in charge of table decorations.



After dinner, we will settle in for some Christmas movies and Peyton's amazing Pumpkin Pie. 



I hope you all enjoy your day with the people you love, in the way you enjoy.
Have a blessed and cozy Thanksgiving Day and weekend, my friends.
I will return here on Monday.
Friday will be a day of leftovers and marathons.
Television, not running.  
(As if actually telling you that were really necessary!)

Happy Thanksgiving!
I am thankful for many things, and among them...you.


P.S. Thankful to Pinterest too.

  17. Billie Jo, I never used to cook the night before Thanksgiving when the children were little either. We'd order pizza or something. Mexican take-out sounds very tempting!
