I am, but not for a lot of people. Only us and DH's folks - simple. But also feels sort of lonely - I miss my sister. WAAAAHHHH - she just moved last weekend to MI - she get a white holiday. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
We are having:<br><br>
turkey & ham with gravy<br>
stuffing<br>
biscuits with cranberry butter<br>
cranberry sauce<br>
Brandied yams<br>
steamed veggies<br>
pumpkin pie.<br><br>
All homemade. I do enjoy cooking from scratch - I just don't do it to this extent - and I did cheat and buy a Honeybaked Ham & Turkey breast - why improve on perfection I always say...<br><br>
What's on your menu??? MMMMMMM - I want those biscuits NOW. LOL. Hope you have a great day!

I was just going to post a "Happy Thanksgiving Thread". We are going to in-laws for our feast. MIL does a really nice job w/these type of things. We have been watching the parade w/the kids this morning - very exciting stuff for a 6 and 4 year old.<br><br>
Hope everyone has a wonderful, nauseous-free day!
