Happy Gobble~Gobble

This is the first year I won't be up untill midnight making pies for Thanksgiving. I'm VERY thankful for that. Dinner will be at the parents house this year since it will be so much easier on them not to have to leave their house. Dad can stay in his 'nest' chair after we eat and snooze away and Mom can get on her 'lovely' seat and do the same. I'll enlist the urchins to help with the cleanup and that'll be it.

I get to make 4 pies today. Yumm-O!!!!!! 2 pumpkin, 1 lemon and 1 Pecan. I think I'll start with desert first tomorrow. Life's short ya know. ;)We're having the traditional fare. Turkey,dressing,mashed spuds and gravey,corn,greenbeans ( no casserole this year) yams and rolls. Nothing fancy but it'll be nice to get together with some of the kids and have a good meal together.

My B-in law is here helping to settle his g-mother's estate and help his ailing Aunt. Sisterlittle didn't get to come w/ him though. She's got a lot of school work ( masters stuff). I'll miss her.
Still, I'm grateful.
I'm not living in a war torn country. We have plenty of food and shelter. Everyone is reletively healthy. I've got my Lovee of 34 years and 2+2+1+1+1+1+....etc .....urchins to love and who love me back. Aside from asking Death to take a holiday and world peace.......all of the stars are aligned and it's going to be a good day.

Peace and Love...........
