A Day to Give Thanks

The pies are baked, the cookies are cooled and the table is set.  Mom has put the bird on the Bar-B, so we now just have the sides to prepare.  The day is going very smoothly so far.  Oh, except, I never got to the gym... I can always go tomorrow, right?  Or the next day...  Anyway, I was more intrigued with watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade instead.  Seeing a sneak preview of The Newsies Musical got me super excited for this new NY Broadway musical coming out in March!  

Our Thanksgiving Table

So, my mom recently just told me a appalling yet hilarious family Thanksgiving story that happened years ago... I was too young to remember that this happened.  But we usually go to my aunt's for Thanksgiving Dinner and after we all ate her delicious meal that she had "slaved" over, she asks us, "So, what did you think of the dinner?"  We all said it was great, yummy, wonderful... Then she says "Well, good because it's actually the Ready Made Turkey Dinner from the grocery store!"  And before my family arrived at her house, she and my uncle were running around the house with the turkey in their arms trying to make the house smell like they had been cooking in it all day!  I think Grandma Madalene was flipping in her grave when she heard them reveal this almost sacrilegious stunt they pulled on this Holiday.  I'm going to have to ask my aunt her side of the story tonight and see why this particular year she wasn't able to do the usual homemade feast!  :)  Well, I've got lots to do, so enjoy the rest of your day!  Happy Thanks!
