Since I have been an adult (well adult age anyway) I really look forward to Thanksgiving with enthusiasm.
It has all the elements of a fantastically perfect holiday. It is full of Pros and low on Cons.
*Family and friends get together
*a few days off from work/school
*NO GIFT BUYING!!!! ( I should have put that at the top)
*Nada. Zip. Zilch. negative. (unless you happen to be Tom Turkey)
We have hosted it at our house for many years and I enjoy the chaos.
I don’t care how many we have over, the more the merrier. I love it.
We have had from 12-20 people and it is always a great day.
*On a side note….I am having serious issues getting into the spirit of Christmas.
I know it is only November, but I was dreading it already last month. More to come on that…I have an idea. I may start a revolution of sorts….
Back in 2006 we actually left our home and rented a house up in the North Carolina Mountains. I was a bit concerned it was not going to be as nice, with us NOT being at our home…..
But, it was a fantastic holiday.
We picked up my Mom in GA on the way up. My Aunt, Uncle and Cousin met us up there.
It ended up warming up quite a bit and was a fabulous week away.
The only down side to this Thanksgiving is that I forgot one of the most important elements of our Thanksgiving table. I nearly ruined Thanksgiving by forgetting these very important peeps.
That is our joke around the house…you ruined our Thanksgiving…..what ever. 😉
I will be boring you all with more Thanksgiving memories over the next few weeks. I may even share my most PERFECT turkey recipe….I stole it from Martha herself.
