Today was Thanksgiving for us.



Toward the end of the preparations, I sent my daughter and older son upstairs to put some clean clothes on. They didn't need clean clothes so much as I needed a few moments without them running circles around my knees. That hot oven door is right at their level and it makes it too easy for a little person to accidentally bonk it and get burned when it's open.


My daughter decided her brother needed a little something special; something to honor the formality of a dinner with all 5 pieces of silverware at each place setting. Hence, the tie:


Funny how much time is spent shopping and cooking for this meal, compared to how much time it takes to actually eat it. Especially for a four year old. He was done in five minutes.


Oh, but it was good! And now I, like the rest of you, finally have leftovers in the fridge. Don't think I haven't noticed all of the turkey sandwiches you all have been enjoying!

After dinner, I put the kids in bed and my husband ran out to buy a cord of wood for our first fire of the season.


Let the holidays begin!

(You know what the strangest thing is about celebrating a holiday on a different day? Realizing that I forgot to check the mail.)

I know about 'Holidays on a different day' all too well :) Love your little boy's tie. My sisters and I used to dress up in our nicest dresses and do our hair just for fun for Thanksgiving dinner.

Looks like it was great, especially the fire :)
Happy Thanksgiving!

Ps. Sent you an email a while back. Where did you get your Etsy badge? Did you make it yourself? I want something like that rather than the "mini Etsy".

Thanks! :) It was really good. I'm thankful I don't have to cook like that every day, though!

(Jen, I did make that badge, using Then I just added it to my sidebar as a picture with a link.)
