This year, Thanksgiving is at our house. Even my out-of-town sisters will be here with their families, so I'm planning on 20 adults (if you count Steve and Ryan as adults...wink) and 20 kids. I'm really looking forward to it! That being said, it's going to be a CRAZY week. I need to get my house company-ready (the hardest part!), make sure the ingredients for all my items are bought and ready, come up with a schedule, serving dishes, serving utinsels, paper products, etc. I know I'm a little crazy, but I really love stuff like this. And I'll be glad when it's over.

What are your plans?

Have fun!

I will be at the shelter in the afternoon. They just sent out a volunteer request because they didn't want to close the house during the day on Thanksgiving day, and it seemed a very appropriate use of my time on a day of thanks giving. :) I intend to spend the evening watching sappy Christmas movies and eating cookies - assuming I manage to make said cookies beforehand - because that is another favorite "tradition". Lovely.

Have a wonderful thanksgiving with your family and enjoy every minute of them. Some of us don't spend holidays with extended family anymore:(

Love you & miss you! ((hugs))
(I'm thankful for you)

Wow! That's going to be fun and crazy... Enjoy the holidays with your entire family, I know it doesn't happen all that often. :)

Good luck! Lynne said she and Danny are having dinner at Leanne's. We are going to the in-laws, but staying at my mom's.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again.

HELP ME NOW!!!!!!!!!

That's what goes thru my mind when I think about Thursday! :D I'm glad it's at your house, though. And it will be awesome to see EVERYONE! Even Mark. Wait. That's not fair to make fun of him when he can't defend himself. Just warming up for the weekend. :D

For the record, I love Mark. I just like to rile him because it's so darn easy.
