The last 4 days have been super busy around our house and yet, nothing seemed to get done.
Thursday, of course, was Thanksgiving. I cooked again this year, minus the turkey. It was just me, the hubs, and the kiddos and cooking a 15 lb turkey seemed pointless. The hubs was determined to have turkey so we compromised, we went to Dickeys. It was so much easier. I went the night before and bought 2 lbs (because 1 would not be enough in his eyes) and all I had to the next day was pop in in the oven to warm it up. Easy Peasey. The sides, which in my opinion, are the best part. I made green bean casserole, yams, mac-n-cheese, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn casserole and croissants.
The kids had a blast lounging around in PJs all day but they barely ate. I assume its because they just got over a cold. Here are some pictures of them tasting everything....carefully.
After linner (you know lunch and dinner combine) I jumped into the shower and put on a LARGE pot of coffee. You see Toys-R-Us was opening at 10 and I had my eyes set on a kitchen.
So I joined the crazies, in the cold, hopped up on caffeine.
Good thing, I got one of the last ones.
But I got sick and laid in bed all the next day (due to lack of sleep, over-caffeinated brain cells and shivering in the cold for hours)
But it was worth it, or so I hope.
