We celebrated Thanksgiving today and it was just the four of us - hopefully the last one without Brendan for a long time! As much as I love hosting Thanksgiving at my house, it was really nice to have a very relaxed day - no pressure to clean or have the meal ready at a certain time! We had time to make Indian headdresses while the turkey was cooking and the kids had a great time decorating them. We ate around 4:30 when everything was finally done. We had turkey, potatoes and gravy, stuffing, cranberry bread and cranberry relish. I didn't make a green vegetable because, really, who wants to eat it? After dinner I finished cleaning up although there really wasn't much to do. We had some pumpkin pie then the kids had baths. After that we watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer to start our Christmas season off right! Bring on December!!!
