Happy (almost) Thanksgiving!

Hi peeps!

I wanted to get on here again and wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all have a fabulous day with your family and friends.

M and I are hosting again this year. I love Turkey Day and it is such a nice way to kick off the holiday season. There is no pressure, just time with family, football and a feast! I'll be in charge of the munchies, sides and a dessert. Mum is bringing the turkey and gravy since I have a wierd phobia about cooking a turkey. (It's totally unfounded since I am quite capable of roasting a chicken so I don't know what my problem is, it's not like it's that different, LOL.) My SIL, S, is bringing her yummy green bean casserole and some pies. It's all going to be delicious! Yum!

Now that my niece and nephews are older, we are embracing the kids table. :) My dining room table isn't quite big enough for all of us and the last time we hosted, I put a card table in the corner for the kiddies. That was kind of a bust since the room isn't that big. We all felt kind of cramped. This year, the kids will have the kitchen table all to themselves, complete with a kiddie centerpiece, and won't be squished into a corner at a dinky table.

Things are pretty well ready for the big day. The menu is set. I have all of the groceries. The serving pieces are all pulled out and my table cloth is pressed. I'm going to set the table tonight. Tomorrow I'm going to make the pecan pie bars, cranberry sauce and prep the veggies that I can for my recipes. Then on Thursday morning I'll do the blitz to get things cooked/prepped, cleaned up and put away before our guests come. I can't wait!

Enjoy your day!
