I am one of those people who views it as a holiday event, not just a big meal.
Come on people, it's Thanksgiving!!
It's a holiday built around blessings, food, family, food, fun, food, and did I mention food?
What's not to love?!
We're hosting this year and went from hosting one guest (I know, sad) to 11 a few days ago. Woo-hoo!
Now it's a party.
Not that it wouldn't have been with just one extra, that's still twice as many people as most families have over. We're always a party anyway.
It will be great.
Even though I didn't bake pies tonight. Pies are a fabulous way to start the day so it's all good. I'll just get up a little earlier.
I've had too much fun with the kids' stuff today to get to pies. I'm kind of jealous that I don't get to sit at the kids' table. But hey, my 13yr old keeps asking if she really has to sit there, so maybe she'll swap me?
Who wouldn't want to sit here?
(really? I didn't think ahead enough to move the tape before I took a picture? doh.)
And none of the fun stuff is out yet.
The coloring pages, and fresh new crayons (be still my heart)....
The pilgrim hats....
-pretend there is a picture because I'm not putting one up....the kitchen was warm, buckle frosting totally melted off and looks all deformed now. dangit. but they will still taste good. Oh yes, they will.-
The jell-o cup turkeys....
And there's still more to come.
Not to mention some incredible food.
I'm already hungry!
