Wow, I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is that close!!!!! Where has this year gone! People are not lying when they say that times speeds up with age… I remember as a child, the Holidays would never come it seemed and then when they did, they were over just like that and we had to wait a whole year all over again (my birthday is in January so it would be a long wait...hehehe!) Now that I have my own children and family (very Thankful for) it seems that it is here before you know it! There is never enough time, energy, money to go around it seems. But there is nothing like the house being decked out, Christmas music playing, making candy and treats, the joy on children’s faces….
This week I am going to be cutting out and sewing a skirt for my mom for my sister’s wedding. She didn’t have time or a sewing machine and I have both so I offered. I am kind of excited! It has been awhile since I have actually sewn something other than mending… Plus I have some little projects I need to get finished up so hopefully it will give me a chance to do that as well! Next Thursday we will be doing Thanksgiving with my husband’s side of the family and then taking my daughter to my cousin’s and either getting my brother to come to the house or taking my son to him. We are going black Friday shopping!!!!!!!! Yay! Can’t wait. I am not die hard about it but I think it is fun and always enjoy good deals if I can! Saturday we are going to do our own Thanksgiving. I think my mom and maybe sister might come up and maybe a few other, not sure yet… This will be the first that I actually do Thanksgiving at my house! I am excited! This is the menu so far….
