Thanksgiving is going to be big this year. Big.
Sweet Caroline is flying in to spend the week with us. Our California family will join us for our big meal, which will actually grow a bit this year, as I add a new dish, sweet potato casserole. We had a special request. Anyone have a good recipe?
Already on the menu:
stuffing (Pioneer Woman's)
lima beans (my grandmother's recipe)
green bean casserole (old school version)
broccoli/rice casserole (Blake's mom's recipe)
obligatory cranberry sauce (left in its canned shape, for added beauty)
Damn. I better add a few days to my walking routine.
Tonight, we're watching one of our favorite movies. If you have not seen it, you must. Robert Downey Jr, Holly Hunter, etc.
After 3 days of bugging me, I finally sat down with the children to make our "Thank You turkey". And, before any of you start asking me to make a turkey for you.....because you're in awe of this beauty......save it. I'm way too busy.
Jack requested wheels on it this year. "To wook yike a train!"
Behold the turkey. We'll add a feather, per kid, each day until Thanksgiving. They'll include something they're grateful for. It's going to be a challenge for Jack to come up with some variety.
Planning to attend the 64th annual Mother Goose Parade this year in San Diego. Looks like good old fashioned dorky family fun.
I stole this fruit and vegetable turkey from Kelley. So awesome. Caroline will help us create this guy before our feast.
Seems like I'm forgetting something else.....time will tell.
Some other, less fabulous, Thanksgiving crafts:
Hope yall had a good weekend. Ours was pretty uneventful. Beach, a little shopping, two movies and time at home with the fam.
