Come take a trip with me on my wild ride as the mother of 3 sweet "babies".

Tuesday, November 23, 2010


I am thankful for many things in my life: my kids, my husband, my home, my job, my friends, my health and my family's health... the list goes on.  I am truly blessed.

This year, I get to host the Thanksgiving feast for my side of the family. 9 adults and 8 kids, I might add. I'm not great at coordinating a big meal, so I'm grateful that I have family members who pitch in and bring dishes of their own.  We are opting out of the big turkey meal because of timing.  Instead, we are having a Thanksgiving breakfast followed by pork loin chili and sandwiches for lunch.  I know - weird, huh?  Although we may be going a little non-traditional this year, some of the usual suspects will be present: Jerry is making a sweet potato dish that is yum-my and Jana is making her famous Heath bar pie.  And just to make the whole event more festive, we have some pumpkin spice creamer for the coffee.

And mimosas.  We'll have mimosas.

All right - I suppose I should get back to cleaning the house.  Up today?  Washing the china, mopping the kitchen floor, and cleaning the bathrooms.  Joy! (where's the sarcasm font when you need it?)

  1. I think I'll be really jealous of you about halfway through my turkey & side dish preparations on Saturday.

    On a positive note, I found Thanksgiving-y stickers today! Gonna cut some turkey shapes out of construction paper and let the lil guys go crazy with the stickers. Might have them ice some turkey cookies, if I decide to add sugar cookies to my list of cooking insanity. (Hoping that keeps them out of my busy kitchen...)
