How many kitchens used cream cheese this holiday?
Or Jello?
GoodNess! Thanksgiving was a Busy day! We got up at 4am to get things rolling...Mr Turkey went into the oven, pies baking...Coke salad to finish...last minute cleaning. Hours of prep time and several more hours of fun time after everyone showed up. Crystal took pictures and I grabbed HER camera and took more...It wasn't until she left that I realised that I hadn't taken ONE family photo with MY camera...Hahaa...gads. The grandkids spent the night with us and their Father (Crys' ex) came by later Friday and picked them up for the rest of the weekend. But BEFORE he came, I took the kids to town to get a movie we all wanted to see and to get Sami's ears re-pierced. We get the movie home, pop it into our State-of -the -art Latest Newest Blue Ray player...and it WILL NOT PLAY! We fought the Sea of People for over 45 minutes to get that movie...the check out line took up half the store in length!! I'm taking it back today...pray for me...Hahahaa.
If you're wondering about the Last picture...Well, Hubby and I were driving to town last weekend when he said, "Look there!! A UFO!!".....I was SO Excited!! Grabbed my handy canon, and started snapping away...Hubby started laughing...I got pissed...NOT a UFO...A GEICO fly-by plane....with a banner...wanting our business...geez.
SO, guess I'll go whip up a little breakfast. Hope you have a Wonderful day...I've got to decorate the TREE today...
