Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian peeps!!!! Today is turkey day so I had to pull out "Let us Gobble Together" from Clear Dollar Stamps. I love Thanksgiving - being able to spend time with my family. I didn't realize how much I liked Thanksgiving until I moved to the States for 3 years to teach in North Carolina. My first year down in NC, I said to my family that I wasn't home sick, didn't care about the family get togethers etc... Then about 4 in the afternoon it hit me how much I missed home - so I made a trip to the grocery store and made my own Thanksgiving meal. Okay... I had to improvise with a Rotisserie Chicken, Stove Top Stuffing and a packet of Gravy and a pumpkin pie! I vowed from that day that I needed to learn how to make a Thanksgiving Dinner. So the following year, I made the whole works with a turkey etc. As I've gotten older, I've tried taking away the cooking of the turkey from my parents but they haven't given it up quite yet. So I'm the "Stuffing Maker". Mmmmm... Stuffing is my fave part of the meal.

Hug your family today and think about all the things you are thankful for.
