One More Week!

One more week till Thanksgiving!  We are excited to be hosting the family for our first Thanksgiving in our new home.  The menu is planned and the shopping list is written & some of the stuff if purchased.

Our menu will be ~

Turkey (Greg's job)
Honey Baked Ham (thanks Mom)
Green Beans
Sweet Potato Casserole
Macaroni & Cheese
Dressing & Gravy (cooked in a pan, not in the bird)
Cranberry Sauce
Rolls (Sister Shubert makes some really good ones!)
Soft Drinks

Desserts ~
Spice Cupcakes (Amys yummy recipe)
Pies (Mrs. Edwards is making these!)

Afternoon munchies ~
provided by my sister

I am praying for sunny weather, so folks can wander outside if they choose.  Greg's got 1/2 his garage set up for tv watching and the wii game system.  We've got the pool table set up for games.  And loads of toys on the backporch for our grandsons to play with.  I am sure the living room tv will be showing football all day & into the weekend. 

And Amy is just a tad bit excited that Austin and his parents are coming on Wed. and staying through the weekend. 

Thankful for ~

Welcome to the farm ~ we are a blended family with 7 children (3 are married), 4 grandsons, 5 dogs, 3 rabbits, and 15 chickens living on 3 acres in Georgia. I love crafting, sewing, cooking & canning, recipes of all kinds, reading, playing with my little buddies, family time, travel, pinterest and most of all the Lord.
