I am cleaning an preparing for T-day as well.

Happy Thanksgiving my friend!

We all need a little humor in our lives from time to time.

The menu sounds good so far. :) I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving.

I made fudge yesterday! Today I am making 3 casseroles at once and blogging in between cooking breaks! Have a wonderful holiday!

Jeannie~ I'm strolling in to catch up and especially to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving!
It's such a wonderful time to stop and reflect on all those we cherish and are truly grateful for.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to visit and leave feeling inspired!

Even though our Thanksgiving is very small in number, with hubby and son (we don't count the cat cause she doesn't like turkey). We don't scrimp on the menu...from appetizers to desserts with several carb loaded dishes in between! We will be enjoying tryptophan playoffs too!

Sweet Holiday wishes,

Annie said...

WOW, you go girl!!! Happy Thanksgiving!

Love the one about the five-minute fool limitation!

Your baking sounds delicious and you just reminded me to take the turkey out to thaw (I'm baking it on Monday).

We did Thanksgiving dinner at the DFAC at camp Tuesday night b/c I have to work Thursday (and I ended up getting called in during dinner Tuesday night anyway).

Enjoy your Turkey Day, and everything sounds amazing!

I'm working on the yams right now. And I was so pleasantly surprised this morning-Ella Numera Dos baked a cherry pie after I went to bed! Hope you and yours have the best Turkey Day ever!

But for the Grace of God Go I...
