I guess you could say we started celebrating Wednesday. The kids were off from school. I had this genius idea to have each of them make one part of the Thanksgiving dinner. It had a two-fold purpose:
1.) give us something to do on their day off.
2.) take the pressure of cooking off me :) I'm no dummy.
(but apparently I am b/c I just tried to spell that like d u m b y. Thank you spell-check)
Anyhow, I think they had fun practicing their chopping, peeling, baking, and general cooking skills.
We woke up Thursday morning to Dad cooking waffles. The cook decided ice cream would make a good topping. Good call.
Parade watching, snow playing, dinner prepping, table setting, and a walk in the woods was how we spent our day.
Dinner was delicious. We were so proud of the kids' creations. Our turkey was accompanied by
Billy"s Deviled eggs
(no pic of that, but here's another one of Ann's)
There's always tomorrow.
It was a great, relaxing day. There is an endless list of blessings to be thankful for, but again I am most thankful for the gift of nothing heavy weighing on my mind.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! I'm thankful for all of you, too.
