So I would have to say our Thanksgiving was a success. I tend to get a little stressed when hosting things but this year I did really well. I really didn't do to much as food, just made a cherry pie (my fav) that morning, threw a ham in the oven later and then made some salads (one of which I made the missionaries make as they arrived early). Last year was way too crazy, and though I love to invite the entire world, I was somewhat relieved that several of our friends had other plans, so it was just 15 adults and their tow. We had some good food, two excellent turkeys and Heather made some fabulous rolls. I made Ashely Tanner's delish buttermilk salad and unfortunately, there was none left over for me. I think the best part was also starting at 3pm as all kids were napped and mostly happy and I had plenty of time to get ready, even with Tad going to school that morning to treat his cells (is there no such thing as vacation for a bio-engineering student?). I do wish we had a basement to let them all go play and it was very cold outside and we didn't last long out there. One day. Hopefully one day soon we will get to share Thanksgiving with family, but for now, I am so thankful for our GaTech and extended ward family. This was our 5th Turkey celebration and I am sad next year we will probably be the only ones left from the original year. So sorry, no pictures, but the camera is supposedly in the mail.
Next stop, I am in charge of the ward Christmas party. Any ideas? Program, no program? Food, Santa? I wish I had more time, next year I will really try to do a nativity, but it snuck up on me this year.
