And So Today We Give Thanks..

Last year we started celebrating our Thanksgiving on Saturday. There were several reasons but the main one was so Big Daddy could spend the actual holiday with his daughters. They both live here in CO (several hours away) and don't get to see him as often as they like. We all live within minutes of each other and get together frequently. To be fair we changed the days so they could spend it with both sides.

Come to find out, Saturday Thanksgiving was a blessing in and of itself this year. I was literally so sick on Thursday I couldn't get out of bed. I spent the day in and out of Nyquil hazes, waking to Macy's parade floats and episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8. Scary, right?

SO, today is our Big Day and I'm at about 90% capacity (trust me that will not stop a bottle of Beringer 2006 Private Reserve Chardonnay to pop at around 11:30am). I worked yesterday but got off early so pies were made, 10 pounds of potatoes chopped and the table was set. Bless Missy and Nantie's hearts.. they showed up and spent 3 hours cleaning house for me so I wouldn't have to worry about it. How wonderful is MY family?! Dang, I have so much to be thankful for..

The taters are on the stove trying to boil and I've taken Tom out of the 'fridge. DH and Kiwi are supposed to golf later this morning (if the frost melts off). I cannot WAIT for the house to start smelling like turkey and get the holiday feel started.

I did, however, burn my toast this morning.. I sure hope it's not a sign...

I'm so glad you're feeling better. Sounds like you're going to have a wonderful Thanksgiving today.

And the cork should come out in just about 2 hours -- if I got moving, I could get there just in time!

Your table looks beautiful, tell the ladies they did a wonderful job cleaning up the joint and are racking up their good Karma points! And as for sneezers in the potatos! Wish I were there Sweetie and please give EVERYONE hugs for me.
