Happy Thanksgiving!

Good Morning Company Girls!

This weekend in Canada is our Thanksgiving weekend. I really like that our thanksgiving is in October (please don't be offended it you're an American and reading this).......we have a huge turkey dinner and since it's in October, we have to wait two and a half months til we do it all over again at Christmas! Yes, I must admit that I don't do the big turkey thing more than twice a year...why?....I have no earthly idea.....it's not like it really is more work than the other big meals that I prepare for a large number of people.....but....I just don't. It does require a little more preplanning....for instance, we've had this humongous turkey sitting in my fridge, thawing since last weekend. Today, I have to go and buy the rest of the food that will hopefully feed the 29 people that are suppose to be sitting at three different tables tomorrow , in my house.

Eldest daughter came down with the stomach flu yesterday so I certainly hope they're able to come tomorrow....it wouldn't be the same without them and especially the four little grandchildren that come with them! Other grandchild is way up in northern Canada for the weekend with his mommy's family...and oh, yes...there's still one grandbaby to come...but he's still enjoying the warmth and security of his mommy til he's born next month! His mommy and daddy ...well, they're the ones that got the new puppy a few weeks ago....go to this blog to see....http://juniper23.blogspot.com/........new babies and puppies...nothing better! Then there is army boy and his girlfriend, second eldest daughter and her boyfriend...second eldest son was invited but he has not replied so I guess he's still angry with me and wont be coming......

The rest of the group is my husband's side of the family...usually we get together at Christmas but this year hubby's twin brother, wife and kids plan to be in Florida at that time, as well as hubby's sister. My dear mother-in-law wanted to have a family gathering sometime so this seemed the most logical.....

So, I must get going...get on my high horse and do a lot of cleaning and shopping to ready everything up for tomorrow!

I pray that you all, whether you celebrate this weekend or in November, to please have a wonderful Thanksgiving, where you can praise God from whom all blessings flow...because without Him there would be nothing to be thankful for.......

My daughter says I speak with a southern accent...weird I know......so...

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! My mom was born Canadian and we used to celebrate two Thanksgivings. I hope your family can be well soon. Enjoy your time together.

Happy Thanksgiving! We will be celebrating next month, but it would be nice to spread out the major holidays a bit. Hope you have a wonderful celebration and that your daughter is able to come. Maybe you will even have a little Thanksgiving miracle and you son will surprise you!

Hope all goes well, can't wait to hear about it next weekend!

So, I guess the day after Thanksgiving there isn't a crazed holiday shopping extravaganza?

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm sure that turkey is huge. Wow! Well, I hope that you all have a great time together. I love getting together with family, and I don't think we do it quite often enough...with extended family anyway.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I hope you enjoy both the company and the feast! I don't make two turkeys either. For one, my DH doesn't like turkey all that much, and two, Christmas and Thanksgiving are too close together here in the states to have turkey on both. We are a ham family for Christmas. :)

Have a great weekend!
