As I type Ihave Christmas music playing in the background and Xaver, Katie, and my nephew are setting up a Christmas Village in my living room. TG is officially over, now on to Christmas!

Here's a run down of today:

  • Clean and Clean and Clean and…
  • Surprise!! Guests get here two hours early!
  • Disassemble the “kit factory” in my front room so we have somewhere to eat
  • Smoked and Brined Turkey Breast-so yummy!
  • Teaching the Kids to play Black Jack with M&M's for chips
  • Homemade apple, cherry, and pumpkins pies, all made with fruit grown in my mom's garden and orchard…mmm
  • Sweet potato pie by Xaver
  • Chatting with the MIL by phone
  • The kids running around the house
  • Yummy mac n cheese
  • Meatball appetizers with Hot Pepper Jelly I got at Collective Journey
  • King's Hawaiian rolls
  • Shopping at KMart
  • Putting up the Christmas tree

I got a few photos of that last little bit but the rest of the day nothing. I guess some memories are just left in your head to remember…

Hope you had a great Turkey Day!
