Early Thanksgiving

So my two step children will be with their mom in Florida for Thanksgiving so I decided to celebrate Thanksgiving on Sunday.  It was pretty close to the real thing.  Only difference there were no parades and better football games than watching the Detroit Lions every year.  I made preparations for a huge spread only to wake up with a stuffed up nose, a severe headache and very little energy.  I got up early and started my feast by making my pumpkin pie and cookies for desert.  By the time those were over, my energy was almost drained.  I have to give props to my DH.  He actually got the turkey ready and put it in the oven and helped make my mashed potatoes!  Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to have such an amazing husband.  He even went grocery shopping and picked up the odds and ends that I missed.  We ended up having an lovely dinner, have PLENTY of turkey left over and enjoyed the day as a family.  Since the children will be away...we may be going away for an "unconventional" Thanksgiving.  I will keep you all updated when I know more!!!


  1. We have Thanksgiving Dinner usually the Saturday after, with my in-laws. It's not so much the exact day, but that the family is all together and gives thanks for it. :)
