We are so excited to have BIL/SIL visiting us for the weekend. We rarely get to see family during the holidays, because we live so far from them, so this is a real treat. We went all-out and made a fabulous feast! Sooo much food. It should feed us for their entire stay, hooray! I started cooking pies and did some prep work last night at about 6:30, went to bed after brining the turkey at 1am (Alton Brown's method made for *wonderful* turkey!!), got up and started cooking again at 9:30, and finally got out of the kitchen to eat at 1pm. That was a LOT of cooking! But so worth it
Now everyone but myself and the kids are taking naps. DS and myself both had naps a lot sooner after our meal, and it looks like DD is skipping napping altogether
Now I have a breather. Thank you for the reminder to stop and think of the things I am grateful for!
