Hey guys! So I woke up this morning around 8 or 9am, and started getting ready for Thanksgiving. We'd decided to have dinner at 4pm, and yeah, I realized that we usually have dinner at 1pm. Cause it's hard to keep kids good until 4pm. ha! And hard to keep the house clean until then. ROFL!
Around 10am, Captain America was on Skype, and we got to talk for quite a long time! And the kids too! It was great!!!
I put the turkey in the roaster oven, and made a few pudding pies while the kids were skyping with their dad, and got to skype too. On and off for about 4 hours. So we DID get to spend Thanksgiving morning with Dad!!!! See, things do work out - hehe ;)
After we were done with the computer, we had 2 hours to finish off Thanksgiving dinner. It was 2pm, and we told Kari's family 4pm. So I went into rush mode. I had the kids help me peel potatoes. Who knew that I had 6 potato peelers. We all split up the bag of potatoes, and started peeling. It went fast when we all worked together.
I made a green bean casserole, and got my cheesecake out. It looked fabulous. I made stuffing, and heated up the rolls, got the cranberry sauce ready, and all the while, having the kids keep the house clean. I'm not sure who we did it. hehe. And I replaced the scentsy in the house with a clean scent. So the house smelled clean. ROF!L If all else fails, fake clean smell works, right? hehe.
Luckily, Kari's family was running late. Because it was taking me longer to cook than I'd hoped. Because of the extra long Skype session. They were about an hour late, and it worked out great for me.
We had dinner around 5pm, and the kids were STARVING. hehe. Kari and family brought all of the same foods, so that they'd have the same leftovers at their house, and yeah, we could have fed 5 families. Oh well. It was a fun time! hehe :)
Here's my turkey on my fish platter. ROFL!
My dinner plate
The grown up table. Brian and Kari, and Tom and Jake and Justin, and then me.
Our plates... Um, yeah, sale halloween plates.... hehe :)After dinner and dessert, Kim texted and said that her in-laws had JUST left for Illinois. I said to come on over for Pie. So her and her kids walked on over, and had some pie with us. Brian eventually went home, and the kids all played nicely outside, and Kari and Kim and I chatted and watched some Myth Busters with Tom, and hung for about an hour. It was a nice relaxing Thanksgiving evening. I think we all had a good evening chatting and hanging.
And soon, we were all sleepying, and the kids were "ready" to go home. hehe. The loaded all up, and headed out. My kids watched a movie on Netflix, and I loaded my store. I debated going to Black Friday sales, but I had no one to go with. So nope, since I can't get any social time out of it, not gonna do it. I'll just sleep in. hehe. Andrea would have gone with me, but she's in North Carolina. Captain America would have gone with me, but he's deployed. Amanda would have gone with me, but she's in Arizona. So I'm by myself. So I'm sleeping in.....
It's now 10:24pm. I'm sleepy. All that turkey and pie is making my tired. Jake is spending the night over at Justin's house. Joe fell asleep on the floor. The other kids are watching Phineas and Ferb's movie. And I'm gonna turn this off and go to bed, I think. I'm sleepy :) Night, all! Hope your Thanksgiving was great!!!
