Conrad and I stayed home this year. We had so much travel right before the holiday, we decided to stay home. I'm actually cooking this year for just the two of us! I made the pumpkin pies last night. YUM! I have the crockpot mac n cheese going (since 7AM) and the cornbread for the stuffing is cooling ... all that's left is the rest of the stuffing, the ham and the sweet potatoes!
My favorite part of today, besides the football, is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I love it. It kicks off the holiday season for me ... LOVE LOVE LOVE it !!!! We are usually on the road driving when it comes on, so I miss it a lot. But not today. I got up, got some things prepped, made my pumpkin spice coffee - and now I'm waiting on the parade kick off.
I'm thankful for my health and my entire family's health - and for Conrad and Blanca - and my family that I love. I'm thankful we have a nice home, good jobs, that we live in the US - everything we all have.
Special thanks to my Uncle Kelley who is spending this holiday in Iraq, protecting us. Y'all say a special prayer, for him, ok?
