So, I got up early this morning and started my laundry. This is what it looked like as of this morning.
Can you BELIEVE???? There are so many wonderful things about having a big family, but this is NOT one of them. I think I have done 12 loads of laundry today. But I got it all done!!
Then I got my peppermint mocha in hand and went to the grocery store to get everything I needed for my Thanksgiving cooking. I made my strawberry pretzel salad, spinach dip, a cheese ring appetizer, Heath bar dip for apples, copper pennies (they are marinated carrots with onions and peppers...we have them every Thanksgiving!),
and I have a turkey and glazed ham ready to put in the oven tomorrow. Ashley and Laura and Lindy all helped me, so I got it done quicker!
My sweet little niece Bailey came over to spend the morning with us. She even went to Chick-Fil-A with us for lunch. She is so precious and kept us entertained all morning! Laura is stealing some of her sugar...
I got my tables set, too. This is my dining room table.
The kitchen table is a little less formal. Since I have 21 people coming, I have to use paper plates since I don't have that much china.
But that's okay. It makes clean up a lot quicker!
Tonight Steve's mom had us over for chili which was so sweet. And I even have time to relax and watch an abc family Christmas movie. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I hope you all have a wonderful day of football, food, and family! I am so thankful for all of God's blessings in my life! He has been so good to me.
