Turkey Day rapidly approacheth...

It's Thanksgiving week! Thursday is the big day - family, food, and fun. Maybe a good nap or two for the lucky ones! We're going to camp out at my grandma's house most of the day, my husband is on call but hopefully won't be so busy that he can't enjoy the inevitable feast. =)

The best part about Thanksgiving for me right now is the lack of responsibility. I know that sounds awful. But my mom and grandma still take care of all the food preparations, so all I gotta do is pack up my little family (which is no easy feat!!) and go enjoy. I can't imagine trying to prepare dinner on my own - I have zero idea how to cook a turkey. I could probably open a can of cranberry sauce easily enough. Come to think of it, I doubt I've ever made greenbean casserole before! Yikes!

Looks like I'll need practice in the years to come!! But for now, I can sleep in, watch the Macy's parade, and travel over the river and through the woods to Grandma's. =)

What are your plans this holiday?

We're hosting Thanksgiving for 10 people here at the house. I just made my grocery store run this morning to get all the ingredients. (Except the monstrously huge turkey that is thawing in my fridge--I got that last week.)

Happy Thanksgiving, Betsy, to you and yours.

Sounds like fun! Enjoy it while you can. In fact, since we always go to my mom's, I enjoy not being the "grown up" in this situation. Except I do make the mashed potatoes! However, the dishes are usually on us ;)

Easily I acquiesce in but I about the collection should have more info then it has.
