I’m so excited about Thanksgiving! Last night I made a flourless chocolate cake and a caramel apple pie for tomorrow, and it was quite a bit of work to keep from digging in right then. You should have seen my kitchen. I am *not* a neat cook by any stretch! Turkey dinner is my absolute favorite. I love the excuse to cook for days and days, love waking up early to put the turkey in, love my girls covered in flour and "helping," love the candles lit and friends and family coming in the door. I love putting on the first Christmas music of the season just as we finish our last bites of Thanksgiving dinner. I love turkey sandwiches on wimpy white bread on Thanksgiving night!
But I’ll admit, I’m also looking forward to the day after Thanksgiving! When we went to Nebraska two years ago to spend the holidays with my side of the family, I got to go shopping with my sister. We woke up while the house was still dark and it was *freezing* out, and hit the stores without the kiddos. It was so fun! I’d never gone before, and was surprised at how non-scary it was after all the stories I’d heard. By the time we were through, we had tons of bags and could barely fit them in the car. I think I remember having spent maybe $150 for about $400 worth of gifts! My husband looked at me like I was crazy; after all, there was barely room for the luggage, LOL! It was definitely a great memory. We even got to meet my mom and sister in law for lunch. I’d actually love it if I could do Thanksgiving here, then head out late Thursday night after everyone goes to bed and fly myself to Nebraska so my sis and I could shop again! But reality doesn’t allow that, so I’ll have to make do. I’ll grab the paper in the morning on Thanksgiving and look over it that night, making out my list and attack plan for Friday. Fun!
