Day After Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was awesome.  Amazing.  Perfect.  Simple. 

  • My food came off WONDERFULLY.  Everything at the perfect time, looking perfect.  Check out my recipe blog later for some of the wonderful recipes. http://makebelievechef.blogspot.com/
  • Everyone showed up on time, not late, not annoyingly early.  They walked in to a warm, clean house, smelling like Thanksgiving.  
  • No one argued, or annoyed anyone.  Very little cringing and tongue biting. 
  • Everyone left stuffed to the gills of wonderful food.
  • I had a dishwasher that made cleaning the kitchen back up take just minutes, not hours days.
  • After lunch it started raining and sleeting and was horribly nasty outside, it was perfect weather to sit, eat dessert, and play Wii.  And nap.
  •  Family then returned for leftovers.  Meaning I have very few leftovers now (yay!).
  • One of the best things about Thanksgiving is eating pie for breakfast the next morning.  YUMM!
  • So...my belly is fully, my heart is content, my house is clean..THIS is what Thanksgiving should feel like.
  • Hopefully going to sweet talk Klay into putting the tree up tonight, tomorrow, or Sunday.  Puh-leeese, Daddy Klay??  PEEEEESSSEEE?!
In other news....I finished knitting my scarf.  Yet I still dont have a scarf, it was stolen.  I thought the novelty had worn off and I'd wear it this morning.  Nope, on the way out the door I stopped to kiss Isaac bye bye....he said "scarf!" and took it away...


Klay  Isaac has been formulating his Christmas list.    Klay Isaac wants Lincoln Logs, Legos, and Play Dough.  I think he'll also get a BIG coloring book (one of those you can lay in the floor and color) and maybe WASHABLE markers.   Can't wait until Daddy's payday to start shopping.  I have my list of what I am getting most everyone and would like to start getting it done so Christmas can feel like Thanksgiving did.
