Since we moved back to California, I have been the host home for Thanksgiving. It works perfectly. My mom and I share the labors and the clean ups. Last year was a big Thanksgiving. We had 19 for dinner and later 22 for dessert. Yeah it was a crazy busy house. And for someone with high anxiety that is a major accomplishment. I enjoyed it. So much so, that we are doing it again this year. But our numbers will be smaller. We are going to have 17 this year. I know...big difference right? But that is not all. Nope...there IS more. We are splitting the work three ways!
This year my dear BF, Emmy and her family will be having Thanksgiving dinner with us. She is in charge of the turkey, gravy, some pies, and I know there is something else. My mom is the rolls, yams, fruit salad, pies, bean casserole and hot slaw. Me? I am potatoes, pies (yeah lots of pies!) stuffing and wait is that it? Oh yeah, it's at my house. Whew. I am excited and looking forward to it. We also will be feeding our missionaries. So it is good we will have all the extra pie!
On Thanksgiving it is normal to have the parade on. Of course, I usually miss it since I am mostly in the kitchen. Maybe this year I can see more of it. More time to clean. I always thought there should be a FRIENDS marathon with all of their Thanksgiving shows! Wouldn't that be fun???
What are you doing Thursday? What are your traditions?
