The Preparations Begin

by Kay~Kacey on 11/27/2008

I write this the night before Thanksgiving, wondering if Thanksgiving will be as much fun as the day before was. But as SuperGuy says “how can you not like a holiday that’s based on gluttony?” :mrgreen:

There were lots of preparations for the big day.

silver polish

There was silver to be polished.

antique silverware

and here is a story in and of itself…we found this bundle of silverware packed in one of SuperGuy’s never unpacked boxes. It was old silverware. I unwrapped it and found a note tucked in it. It was a wedding present given to his grandparents and passed down to his dad, and now to him. And I never even knew he had it. Now we have enough good silverware to use for everyone without breaking out the everyday stuff. Very cool. (The silver chest underneath is my silver that I inherited from my Grandmother. So we have a lot of love going on our table!)

pies baking

There were pies to make and bake.


There were turkeys to be dressed out, and secrets explained to the next generation of cooks. Bless SuperGuy for frying the turkeys and keeping them out of my kitchen while I make the rest of the goodies!

chili cooking on stove

I made a big night before Thanksgiving pot of chili for the boys as they staggered their way into town for the holiday. I figured chili was an easy, don’t-mess-up-the-kitchen meal for the babies boys. Plus I can make tons of it to fill them up and hold them over for the Thanksgiving feast.

Kitty watching the cooking

Green, one of the kitties, supervised from his throne on the trashcan. Or maybe he was staying out of the way of all the males…I’m not sure 😉

chili dinner

The males seemed to enjoy their chili dinner.

and did you really think all those males would get together and NOT do a pointing photo??? The jerkfaces. :love: :love: :love:

I hope each of you have a fantastic Thanksgiving with all your love ones. I’m surrounded by males and loving every minute of it. Happy Thanksgiving! It’s a wonderful day to sit back and remind ourselves of everything we have to be thankful for.

Blessings to you and your gaggle of males for a safe and enjoyable holiday! In all the rush of preparations, remember to kick back with a glass of wine and savor the moment.
