Let the Thanksgiving Games Begin!

I'm so excited! My sisters will be coming into town today to begin the Thanksgiving festivities. I love the action, food, and general good feeling. I will have chili at my house tonight to give mother room in her kitchen for the main food. Maybe there will be an opportunity for Scrabble!!

My to do list is enormous today:
  1. Repair a few chairs for mother
  2. Finish two work projects
  3. Make cranberry sauce
  4. Make the crusts for the pecan pies
  5. Bake the sweet potatoes for the puree
  6. Make chili
  7. Straighten and shine my house
  8. Wash clothes
I love the energy and expectation before holidays. True, they don't always live up to the sky-high Norman Rockwell inspired expectations, but on the day before there is always possibility.

I'm right there with you, and can't imagine how much the fun would be doubled sharing it with sisters. The kids and I have been doing various catch up projects, and will be moving furniture and shining the house today, and making the stuffing. I can almost taste the bird!

Have a lovely holiday!

Chili is an excellent idea with so much else to do! I'm going to throw together the crockpot variety, right now!
