I am so happy that I got to come home for my favorite holiday. We're going to have Thanksgiving Dinner at my house this year. That is going to be a little bit strange. We've only eaten at our house one other time that I can remember, but I suppose traditions change as our lives change.
My mom cleaned all day yesterday and prepared for all of the cooking she had to do today. I helped with what I could and did as much cleaning as I could help with. Usually I'm better at making messes than cleaning them up though.
But after some hard work I finally get to sit down by the nice warm wood stove and blog.
I filled the cooler up with soda pop and adult beverages. It's not a family get together without an adult beverage or two, that is for sure...
Or fridge is filled with pies, ranch dip and various side salads for dinner tonight. Of course, It's now 5 o'clock and the bulk of the guests have yet to arrive, so everything is still, quite literally, chillin' in the fridge. Every year we go way beyond the usual mashed potatoes, green beans, and turkey. We always have way more food than we could possibly eat, but it gets eaten eventually.
