Thanksgiving madness begins

It’s only a week until Thanksgiving. While it’s supposed to be a time to be grateful for all that we’ve been blessed with, it’s also time for hair-pulling, shopping carts slamming into one another in crowded supermarket aisles and family. This year instead of having close friends over we decided to spend the holiday with Kara’s family. Originally it was supposed to be at her mother’s but it’s since been moved to our house. The maddening part is that we’ve just completely and I mean completely moved our house around.  All the kids have moved to new rooms and we’re just finishing up the cleaning. Imagine what we’re doing this weekend?!

So why is it being held at my house? Supposedly it’s more kid friendly.  Personally, I think it’s because of my new 42″ plasma tv but that’s just me talking. If the family only remembered that I’m not a football fan and would rather pull my eyelids over my head than watch it they might have reconsidered. Despite that, I’ve been helping Kara decide on appetizers, dishes served, etc.  To me that’s the fun part…helping plan the meal and watching it all pull together. Kara’s been making Thanksgiving dinner ever since we’ve been married so she’s only gotten better at it. Hats off to her!

So what am I thankful for? A wonderful wife that loves to cook and cook big, my family and the plasma tv to keep them occupied!

  1. My husband is right about one thing, I have mastered the Thanksgiving feast, and with his help we expand every year on new dishes to give us a reason to loosen our belts! Even though it’s a short notice on the dinner arangements I’m glad my family can get together this year. The best thing about Thanksgiving is baking together w/my sisters and husband and of course 6 kids and 2 neices to help out with as well! Ok, the plasma TV helps too!!

  2. Well our plans have changed again. We’re back at the mother-in-law’s house for dinner. Looks like I’ll have to rely on my social skills instead of the TV. Hmm…my work is cut out for me.
