Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Turkey Day!

We are in the land of Indiana for this great, long, Holiday weekend at my in-laws. We arrived around 10 p.m. Wednesday night after a very long day of errands, cooking, packing and then driving.

We were very excited to get to see all of Jonathan's family after having not seen them for almost 5 weeks. Unfortunately, my Mother-in-law has to work at the hospital today, so we are going to Jonathan's Great Aunt and Uncle's house, John and Linda LeBaron, for Thanksgiving Day and for a wonderful dinner. I am taking my homemade Cranberry Salad, which is a must in my family for both Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. (Another must for ME - Stove Top (brand) Dressing) In Jonathan's family there is no such thing. Don't tell anyone, but it's that nasty Oyster Dressing. My Mother is a great cook and does basically everything from scratch, but never the Dressing. It's got to be Stove Top :) lol :) I hope you all enjoy your Turkey Dinners and then those great naps that come afterwards :)

We are here in Indiana clear through Sunday evening and will greatly enjoy the time we will get to spend with family. Lindsey loved getting to see Lizzi and Noah when we arrived and started running around and playing with them immediately. She loves to play with kids and Cousins are at the top of her list.
Also, on this great holiday, my Baby Lindsey, is 22 months old! How time flys! The other night we drove by this house in our neighborhood that had a huge blow up Turkey in the front yard. I pointed it out to her and told her it was a Turkey and she promptly said "Turkey"! She is definitely not a early talker, but just within the last week she is quickly becoming my parrot. After having driven by the Turkey we then drove by some Christmas decorations that were up in the neighborhood as well and she called all of that "Turkey" too :) lol!

I AM VERY THANKFUL FOR MY HUSBAND ~ LINDSEY ~ OUR PARENTS - both sides ~ OUR SIBLINGS AND SPOUSES ~ OUR NIECES AND NEPHEWS ~ AND ALL THE REST OF OUR GREAT FAMILY - both sides!!

Have a Great Happy Thanksgiving Holiday!

I agree with you - Stove Top is a must for us too! Although, one year when I hosted Thanksgiving for my entire family, I didn't tell anyone and expirimented and made White Castle dressing. Don't gag - it was really good! You buy a bag of 10 white castles and they give you the stuffing kit/spices and recipe. It was sooo funny to see the looks on everyone's faces when I told them what they were eating!
