Keeping Busy

Yesterday I made stuffing, washed and dried the turkey, made strawberry apple pie, printed out the thankfulness memory cards, cooked a chile dinner for everyone at night, kept toddlers away from fireplace, redecorated the house,

took pictures of family jumping in the leaves outside and cleaned-up kitchen and watched The Kite Runner and then to bed.

Today thus far, made cinnamon rolls for breakfast while I let everyone sleep in late, turkey was stuffed and is now in oven, daughter made a green bean casserole, made sweet potato casserole, I set table, washed the toddlers clothes, tended the fire (AGAIN), adults kept kids entertained and safe.

Now waiting for son and his gal to get here along with a pumpkin dessert (Yum!). Hubby has a breather while the kids have driven off to a nearby playground and he is mowing (!) the front yard so that it looks nice for the holiday.

I have no idea what they were doing yesterday in this photo below....

I am so thankful that, thus far, everything is on schedule and no one has killed anyone! HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all who read my blog!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
    JUST reading what you have accomplished has tired me out!!

    Bear((( )))

  2. What Bear said!! Hope you had a wonderful day!

  3. Great fun! Didn't you love THE KITE RUNNER!

  4. We watched WALL-E.

    Sigh. I remember my first Thanksgiving in Virginia. 78 blissful degrees. I had never seen anything like it.

    Sounds like your holiday was simply delicious! I hope you get some R & R after all that work.

  5. Thanks for the post. Sounds like a great family together time.
    Take care and rest when you can!!

  6. That's a lot of work, but done with love. I'm taking notes as we prepare for our WA grandsons at Christmas. 7, 4 and 1 with a wood stove. Scary! I liked that movie.

    Happy feasting! HUG

  7. it sounds like everyone is having a grand time, even the OCD grandma who is not happy if she is not working HARD every moment of the day. lucky family members, indeed, and good daughter for helping with the meal. update us on what they were doing on the dock when you learn. i imagined they were watching a school of fish swim by! happy holiday weekend, tabor! :))
