Well, the prep work has begun! Not only the shopping but the cleaning and all the things in between. We are expecting 6 new faces this year to our table so we have all the food to go with those additions to our table. Now, don’t get me started on all the cleaning that I still have left to do before Thursday gets here.
Not only are we preparing for the big dinner that always is a hit, we are getting geared up for Black Friday shopping! I am so looking forward to the deals this year because it is a huge help with kids Christmas presents. Yes, I know I am crazy for subjecting myself to the must have deals of the season, but I have had years of practice and this happens to be a family tradition of shopping!
I am of the old school tradition of not putting my Christmas tree up till after Thanksgiving and it is truly about to kill me. I love my tree and all the memories that it brings up and I love to have it up for as long as possible. I am not sure how I am going to keep the cats and my girl out of the tree but I am always open to suggestions!
We will also be taking family pictures soon for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I hope to try some of my camera skills out. Don’t worry, I will post those along with pictures of the tree, chickens, etc. very soon!
I always take time during this holiday to think of all the things I am thankful for and I won’t bore you with a list a mile long but I will say that family is always at the top. I am most thankful for God and the relationship that I depend on so much with him. So when you sit down to your plate of food and you have family and friends all around, be reminded of what to truly be thankful for and who all the thanks is due.
Don’t worry, we will have pictures for all to see of the dinner and the family!
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Psalm 136:1 NLT”
