Happy Thanksgiving

Well happy Thanksgiving one and all. We are here and officially in the holiday season. I watched the parade on TV with the kids this morning as our Thanksgiving day ritual while we prepared the dishes we were bringing to my in-laws house for dinner.

We brought the green bean casserole and a vegetarian stuffing (as my husband is a vegetarian, but REAAALY likes stuffing) Plus I had to take the fabulous chex mix that we made a couple days ago.

It was really a nice meal. We had my five, husbands parents, sister in law, her boyfriend and his parents. So we had a pretty full house. It was pleasant though. No fights broke out, nobody got drunk and started taking swings or anything like that. You hear about these people that dread going to family functions because of stuff like that and that alone makes me pretty thankful. Although I do have a lot to be thankful for. I am thankful for healthy kids. I am thankful for my husband that he has put up with my gruff this long and doesn't seem to be shaken. I'm thankful for my nutty dysfunctional family. They may be crazy, but they seem to be my kind of crazy :)

Here are a few pictures of our day. I think my favorite is Peanut perched in his favorite place on planet earth....Grandpa's lap while he's eating pie :)

Now I need to get some sleep if I'm going to be outside Fred's at 4:30 for my cheap socks!!! I wait all year to buy socks and do my full combat shopping. I have a route to plan.
