how Thanksgiving was

Turkey carcass simmering on the stove.  We are having turkey vegetable soup and dumplings this evening.  Our Thanksgiving holiday was simple and easy.  We had a co-worker and her husband over with a friend of theirs', a friend of mine that used to be my co-worker, and our friend from church.  So, there were nine of us.

The Menu:

~Mashed Potatoes
~Sweet Potato Casserole
~Corn Bread Stuffing
~Green Beans
~Cranberry Sauce
~Vegetable Tray
~Peanut Butter Chocolate Cream Pie
~Pumpkin Pie
~Spiced Apple Cider

All the food turned out beautifully.  After everyone left Aaron and I took the dogs for a walk around the neighborhood.  We smelled lots of Thanksgiving meals, saw lots of full houses, and had a nice time alone.  The rest of the evening was spent in a coma, or as near to it as possible.

I worked the day before the holiday and we were ever so very busy.  I also worked today (Black Friday) and we were again ever so very busy.  As the schedule has it I also work Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas.  But, I'm thankful to have a job, a way to help out my family even though it's hard, and sometimes I have to drag myself out of the house to get to work because all I want to do is be home and be June Cleaver.
