Thanksgiving

| | Comments (2)

Yeah....I invited them all to have Thanksgiving here. I love it....it's a crazy day, and takes a lot of time to organize, but I'm a sucker for a traditional Thanksgiving.

We expect to have 41.....FORTY-ONE people to sit down to dinner here. I've figured out how to do it without renting tables, and without renting chairs! Family will bring chairs, I have chairs, and a friend is going to loan seven chairs to me. Another friend has offered table cloths. I think I have it all covered. We have plenty of glasses, china, silverware and napkins. I've written up a proposed menu. It's pot luck, and family can either bring part of the written menu, or contribute something new. Once the menu is complete, I'll print it on the blog. It's just astonishing the food that we will share.

Unfortunately, not all of my family will be able to attend. My sister-in-law is feeling poorly, and one of my nieces and two of her brothers live too far away to make it for the day. The twins will be traveling to their sweethearts, and one small branch of the family has not responded. (Make a note to buy Thanksgiving cards for those who can't attend......)

I'm SO EXCITED!!! (Can you hear the Pointer Sisters singing in the background?). If I wasn't typing, I'd be boogie-ing across the room, headed to my list of things to do, getting ready for the big day. I love this time of year, and I'm really looking forward to the family gathering. How fortunate we are to have a place to offer them, and how fortunate we are that most of them will be able to join us. *S*

You are such a glutton for punishment:)

Good for you though - it takes a special person to organize large family gatherings and you always seem to pull them off grandly!

Bogie, you have it in one! I AM a glutton for punishment where it comes to my family and Thanksgiving. Your mother believes that I am crazy to take this on, but it has been important to me to encourage my family to keep in touch.

I don't have to do all the cooking, I just need to get my house in order, and be sure that we have enough seating and place setting. I'll have help with the clean up, and what isn't done by the time the last guest leaves can be done over the next day or so.

So, what it comes down to, is looking forward to a lovely time with my extended family. I'm all for it! *S*
