I keep forgetting that it's Thanksgiving because I'm not cooking the big dinner this year. My brother-in-law is! He's got his own place now and more free time and so he wanted to host. And I'm thrilled. Though, I kept forgetting that Thanksgiving was this week. I'm sure we'll help with the cooking. Sis has promised to bring the rolls; I'm thinking of baking an almond cake that we like.
Family dinner isn't until Saturday, though, so we'll spend Thursday in our pjs, watching the parade, and eating some food we have ordered from a local soul food place. Mama wants to get out the Christmas decorations and be ready early this year (which makes sense because we don't have many free days in December.) We'll see if we muster that much energy.
The kids had energy on Sunday and helped make 200+ pies for a local soup kitchen with the children's service team at church! It's one of our favorite service projects.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving!
