Happy Thanksgiving! Today my daughter, son, daughter-in-law, and grandsons are coming to our house for Thanksgiving dinner! I am roasting a turkey, making mashed potatoes, gravy, pumpkin cornbread, and applesauce. My daughters are bringing the veggies, yams, cranberries, deviled eggs, and dessert. We will have a tasty dinner together and much for which to be thankful for sure!
After dinner we will put my tree up and then I have a gift for each person who will be here. I know it is not yet Christmas, but I always begin the season with gifts – it is just for the fun of it! Doing this does NOT mean my grands and family are spoiled – we throw away things which are spoiled and I would NEVER throw my loved family away. They are “well-loved” and since I am grandma/mom it is perfectly acceptable for me to show this!
My grandsons will be spending Saturday night, so they will find a fun treat under the tree – each time they are here between Thanksgiving and Christmas there are special treats under the tree for them – just for the fun of it! When they were little, their “treat” was often Matchbox cars, but now they are treats like homemade muddy buddies, full size candy bars, homemade fudge, etc. Just a small special treat to brighten the day.
I love this time of year – I have ever so much for which to be thankful, and I am ever so thankful! I pray you also enjoy this season to be thankful and build memories with the ones you love – Happy Thanksgiving!
