Happy Thanksgiving Break Y’all!
Whew, I made it. This was a doozy of a week here at the manor. Can I just give a shout out to all of the single parents around the world? These people deserve several extra stars in their crown and free Starbucks coffee anytime they want it. Mr. Creativity has been in LA for most of November and it just about broke me on Wednesday of this week. Not even kidding.
So if you have a friend or relative out there that is a single parent ALL OF THE TIME, hug them. Bring them a special something just to make them smile. Tell them they are awesome. Tell them Holly said so.
Okay, enough with the PSA. Let’s talk about Thanksgiving shall we?
Do you have your stretchy pants ready? Are you ready for the meat sweats? Is your turkey already thawing in your fridge?
If so, you are ready.
We are having a crowd of people here on Thursday and I think I will be ready. I’m in charge of making the stuffing (grandmother’s recipe) and cleaning the house. Mr. Creativity and his friend Skyscraper will each be making a turkey.
Then between all of our friends, the sides will be done. And let me tell you, my friends can cook. I’m so excited. 😉
I thought I would show you all some of our past Thanksgiving group shots that we have had in years past. We always gather in front of the Christmas tree and take a big group shot before digging into the turkey. I’m sure it is miserable for everyone, but I love getting to go back and see it.
This is one of my favorite pictures of all times. It is not the best quality, but you see the two people standing on the far left side? Yeah, we don’t know them. We met them at Cracker Barrel that morning. They were nice and they liked Mr. Creativity’s Tennessee hat.
They didn’t have family in town and we had plenty of food, so they came for Thanksgiving.
Ed and Libba. I truly hope they are doing well wherever they are.
I have had the best time going through our old photos and seeing the happy smiling faces that have graced our Thanksgiving table. We are truly blessed to have gotten to spend a meal with you.
And if you are coming this year, get ready. I will be taking this group shot come you-know-what or high water. Get over it and put on your happy face. It’s a Thanksgiving tradition!!!
I hope wherever you are you are having a blessed and happy holiday.
