Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family, friends and yes, delicious food, too!

We were supposed to be halfway to Nashville right now to spend the holiday with my parents, my brother and my nieces.  However, it wasn't in the cards for any of us.  Instead, we planned to just do a small turkey and all the fixings here at home.   But, that changed, too!  We will be spending the day with another family from our church and I'm not going to lie, I'm looking forward to it.  They host our weekly Life Group meetings and are so sweet but apparently the husband is Mr. Gourmet Chef without even trying.  He's the guy that can have something delish at a restaurant and go home and make it, without a recipe.  Anyhow, he's smoking a turkey and yes, I am looking forward to trying it!  I am making sweet potatocasserole, green bean casserole, cherry delight and a pumpkin pie to take.  I'm thankful I don't have to make the turkey, but honestly, I'm going to miss having enough leftovers that I don't have to cook for the rest of the weekend.  LOL 

I will be out at 3am trying to score some deals from Kohls.  It's the only place I have a charge card to and it's the only way the kids will have anything under the tree.  I'm not planning on going overboard, but trying to make sure they have at least a pair of pajamas and a toy to open.  I also have to pick up something for Monster and T since their birthdays are each within a week of Christmas.  Again it won't be much, but enough they have something to unwrap on their big days.

I'm also planning on getting crafty!  We're going to attempt to make salt dough homemade ornaments not only to decorate the tree, but to give as gifts.  So if you know a crafty way to attach a photo to a clay-like ornament, please leave a comment and let me know. 

May all your holidays be blessed!
