I have spent the last week drooling over the very thought of my Aunt MaryAnn's Thanksgiving dinner. Mmmmmm... I can hardly wait! This is one of those thankful things, but it seems too selfish to use as a thankfulness post, so I will cheat. But I am very thankful for my family and their fabulouso abilities in the kitchen. I will not go into too much detail, as it will simply make you all jealous and you might crash our Thanksgiving and then there won't be enough fluffy rolls for me. I am really looking forward to the time with my family as well, we don't see them very often as our lives are busy, but I love them dearly and can't wait to see them all.
I love Thanksgiving for many reasons. It brings in the Christmas season, which I LOVE, and it is a warm, fun, friendly holiday with good food and family. Like Christmas, but without the crazy shopping and stress. Tracie and I were talking about it the other day, Thanksgiving is kind of like the middle child that is quietly special, but sometimes ignored in all the Christmas excitement. True, I do think that the shopping the day after Thanksgiving is almost as important as the holiday itself, so I am not doing Thanksgiving the service it deserves by lumping it with Christmas that way. But I am one of those people who thinks that getting up at 4 am to get good deals is a lot of fun! So today, we head over to Thanksgiving to stuff ourselves silly, and tomorrow, I will be hitting the mall. And it will be great!
