Wow, Thanksgiving!

November 25, 2016

We had family that traveled to be with us this year for Thanksgiving.  An honor, a crowd, a lot of food, pumpkin pies or just plain pumpkins, if you are a cow.thanksgivingI think I should write a realistic cookbook for Thanksgiving.

Go to the store 1,001 times.  

Still forget something,

Put the bird in the oven,

Clean up the kitchen 101 times,

Plan all side dishes accordingly,

omit side dish that doesn’t make the cut, when the bird is done about an hour early,

if you drink, have some while cooking,

do not learn how to make gravy,

so you can organize side dishes that do make it into the good china while,

Your Loving Spouse makes the gravy.

Pray, eat, repeat.

The septic tank handled the crowd, for which we are always grateful!

However….the biggest…the best…the greatest Thanksgiving distraction on earth came when Number One Son called to say…Number One Wife’s water had broken…they were at the hospital (in Spokane)…we stopped to pray…and waited…

Between, ‘oh my goodness, I am so full’ and ‘perhaps I will make just a small turkey sandwich’…

She arrived…and we are THANKFUL on this Thanksgiving!

Little E….
