Happy Thanksgiving!

I was up at 5:30 this morning!  It must be the excitement of the day because I hadn't planned on putting Tom Turkey in the oven until 10am!  But, since I was up.....I baked a dutch apple pie, made the stuffing, prepared the turkey...got him stuffed and buttered and in the oven at 8:00am!  The dishes are done and the mashed potatoes/gravy/green beans and rolls will be taken care of much later.  I still have to set the table, though....but I'm pacing myself! We'll eat earlier than I had planned, but that's OK...the day is ours.

Thankfully, the kids are in a good mood!  I think Amelia might be coming down with something.  She said her head hurts really bad and she has a stuffy nose.  She feels a little warm to me, but I haven't actually taken her temp yet.  Let's hope for the best.

Right now (8:15am), everyone is eating breakfast and the kids are watching an episode of Power Rangers Samurai (sigh).  We'll watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade later.  My plan is to eat at about 2pm...then we may take a ride out to the beach!  The weather is nice....50 degrees right now will most likely be in the 70's this afternoon.

Whatever your plans are....Have a Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!
