Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I hope everyone is doing well. I'll be cooking Thanksgiving dinner for the first time in my life, so say a prayer! The boys will all be helping and pitching in, but it's still going to be mainly up to me to make it all work. I'm really hoping I don't mess it up!!

The house is great but it's been a pain trying to get everything unpacked. I forgot to mention before, but we got a washer and dryer! Jake's girlfriend happened to be selling hers on Ebay for 300. She said she'd be willing to take payments, so we're sending her 100 from each check. It's weird that I'm actually happy about being able to do laundry, but it makes a big difference when it's at your house and not down the street. It's still one of my least favorite chores though!

Got the mustang to the garage, we're probably going to start disassembling it soon. Still have several boxes to unpack, but I've gotten a lot more done than the boys expected. My goal is to finish up this weekend and decorate for Christmas. The sucess depends on many things, the least of which are the ability to get out of bed at a reasonable time and whether or not I'm going to Schlitterbahn for their Christmas celebration with Teresa or not.

These are the plans for Thanksgiving dinner: The Domino "One-Pan Thanksgiving" which is not one pan after I'm done with it, of course. It included gingered cranberries, chestnut and prosciutto stuffing, maple butter butternut squash, gravy and yummy turkey. I'm skipping their salad in favor of adding green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole and broccoli cheese casserole. Yes, three casseroles. I love the green bean, Jake requested the sweet potato, and Cory is making the broccoli cheese. No desserts because Justin said I didn't need any (which I don't) although I might whip up some sugar free jello. We should have leftovers for like, a MONTH. Or maybe a week, if I'm lucky. The boys all eat a LOT.

Anyways, I'll try to post some pictures if I get the chance. Hope you all have a great holiday!
