One Week and Counting

Thanksgiving is really my favorite holiday. It's more about family and being able to enjoy one another's company, in addition to reflecting on our blessings than it is anything else.

This Sunday we'll have Ted's family over to celebrate the holiday. I don't really like saying "Ted's family" because we're just all one big happy family, but with that term, I suppose it just keeps it straight as to who will be with us. On Thanksgiving Day we'll be at my folks' and see the cousins, etc.

This is the third year that we've done the Sunday thing with Ted's side and we really enjoy it. Not only is it about being together and celebrating the day, but it's also about....THE FOOD!

I'll let you know what I'm making and maybe even how I'm making it. We've begun the thawing process of the turkey, and that's about it so far. I guess it's fair to say that I do better under pressure, hahaha. Of course no one else in the house will be speaking to me by the time the cooking is finished, but that's become an annual tradition!

It's going to be a busy weekend!

Yum! I love Thanksgiving too. We aren't doing anything much this year though. I've got a ham I'll bake for just the two of us.

I'm with you. Bring on the FOOD!
I hope it's a fabulous time. :-)

I'm a bit sad about Thanksgiving this year because it's the first year that neither of my brothers will make it home to celebrate with us. I will enjoy the family time with my parents and sisters though....and the FOOD! :)

Happy Thanksgiving! I miss having family around to cook for. . .

Hopefully, you will change your backdrop of this page then. It is pretty but so difficult for me to read the print.
