I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! 

Today I will be preparing the meal for my parents, brother and grandma and my other brother who is stationed out in Washington D.C. will be home to celebrate with us with his wife and two kids. The only sad part about him being home is because he gets leave for my other grandma's funeral which will take place on Saturday. It has been another whirlwind week but we will make the best of it. 

Today I plan to make turkey, sweet potatoes, and green bean casserole. The mashed potatoes are made the day before and put in a crock pot to be placed on high in the morning. Love this recipe because it is one less think to worry about in the morning..:D Since I am not the baker in the family, my grandma made lemon pie and my FAVORITE pie, sour cream raisin (num num num)!

I am very thankful for my family and as much as I complain sometimes, they truly are a blessing in my life. I am also thankful for all of my readers. It has been another fantastic year!!
