I cannot believe Thanksgiving is next week already – where the heck has time gone? You know what kills me though? The fact that it’s not even Thanksgiving yet and people already have Christmas decorations up! Honestly. I get that retail feels the need to do it, but regular homeowners with white Christmas lights up and blinking already? Geesh. People, slow down!
I finally took a few minutes to plan out the Thanksgiving menu for next week, and think I have it all covered except for dessert. I’m keeping some of the same things as last year, particularly because I remember it being a very relaxed day, and I’m all for that these days. I’m definitely open to any dessert suggestions you have — fire away!
Now speaking of Thanksgiving, Rachael Ray did a recent episode all about throwing kids’ parties and decorating for them, and her guest had some fabulous ideas that I am going to use. She used a frisbee for a plate (great parting gift), two coloring book pages taped together as the placemat, a bright colored washcloth as the napkin and Cooties (remember them?) as the napkin ring. How cool is that? I might win a Very Cool Mom Award… maybe, just maybe.
Until tomorrow… c’mon, fess up, whatcha making for Thanksgiving?
A year ago today… sigh … vacation, arrival in Bermuda.
