Happy Thanksgiving 2013

L-R:  Kirk, Chase, Bruce, Audrey, and Scott, Thanksgiving 2012

My husband and I will be having a very low key Thanksgiving this year.  We have turned down all invitations to celebrate with family and friends and I have decided not to host it at my house this year.  This is the year our children celebrate Thanksgiving with their in law's family.  I guess I am being the 'turkey' or 'Thanksgiving Scrooge' this year.

I love to cook and Thanksgiving is one of those holidays where I can go all out.  But, this year I am not even cooking a turkey.  I bought a stuffed turkey breast, gasp!, and plan to have a vegetable and bake one pie.  This is so unlike me.  I feel a little guilty about it.

We have had an unusually hectic fall and we feel we need the down time to finish a few projects and start getting ready for Christmas.  Look out kids, Christmas should be spectacular!  I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving.
