Well Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I know some have celebrated sooner so they could spend it with their families and others will celebrate it later for the same purpose. It doesn't matter when you celebrate it I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you are able to spend it with family and friends.
We will be staying here at home. Our family is in Idaho and California and me being 35 weeks pregnant we decided to stay home. Throughout the month I have added to each weeks grocery list a few items that will be needed so this weeks grocery bill wasn't through the roof. It worked really well. We have a good size turkey and will have lots of leftovers.
I know that everyone has their own traditions of what they like to eat for Thanksgivings. We have turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, olives, rolls, stuffing, sometimes ham (just not this year), pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, and sweet potato cheesecake. I made the cookies last night and today my husband and daughter will me with the pies and then tomorrow we will make the rolls.
We are looking forward to Thanksgiving and are very thankful for everything that we have. I'm thankful that my husband doesn't have to work tomorrow or Friday. I'm thankful that my daughter is feeling better and getting over her head cold. I'm thankful that although our family is in Idaho and California we are able to communicate with them very easily because of technology today. I am thankful for our good health and for the love that we have in our family. I'm thankful for my husband's job and all that it provides for our family. I'm thankful for our college education and our common sense. I'm thankful for the house that we live in, the good neighborhood and the friendly neighbors.
I could go on and on and on. I just really wanted to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving no matter where you are or what you are eating if you have at least one thing to be thankful for it will be a good day.
