A happy thanksgiving: A nice quite thanksgiving at home without stress.

This year, my wife is very close to having our second and last child. So, we weren't going to be driving anywhere for Thanksgiving. As situations unfolded, we had a nice quite Thanksgiving at home. My youngest sister and her kids came to my house and she cooked a very nice meal which fed everyone and one of our friends who traditionally stops by for Thanksgiving. It was a good day. As we only purchased some of the food but didn't have to cook, I was free to spend more time noticing how long it takes to get a holiday meal on the table. Longer than I would expect. My sister starting doing things shortly after getting up and dinner was ready by 4pm. That's pretty much a full day in the kitchen. Anyway, I hope that everyone had a wonderful day and that those who did all the cooking feel appropriately appreciated. Good night.

Sounds like you had a lovely thanksgiving. I like the no stress kind of holidays too. How very nice of you to be so appreciative of all that your family does to make things nice for everyone.

Sounds like you had a nice Thanksgiving. I cooked Thanksgiving dinner this year and it did take quite awhile to do. I waited and did all of the deserts on Turkey Day as well, so that took up a good deal of my time. I spent pretty much the whole morning and part of the afternoon in the kitchen.

Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. That would be the way I'd like to do things more often. Mine was pretty good too. I got to watch my hubby dance with our daughter around the living room. Then, pregnant belly and all I gave it a whirl.
