Where Have I Been?



Well, there has been a lot going on here. Lots of house guests...all wonderful...thanksgiving...very yummy...and giveaway day. Giveaway day is over tonight. Phew! I never thought i would say that, but man it has been hard to keep up. Don't get me wrong, i am thrilled. I just had no idea that so many other wonderful bloggers out there would be as excited about my giveaway as i was to take part. Thanks all of you commenters and new followers. I am flattered. My hubby and I are going to get the technical parts taken care of and i will post the winner as soon as i can. I hope i find some more new and wonderful bloggy friends through this.


but here is a little flashback...in order to be orderly my sister and very organized husband set up a whitboard with the schedule of cooking for Thanksgiving. What and when it had to be made. That is all very tidy of them, right? As funny as i thought it was it really helped.

The little girls made a thanksgiving "tree"... they used a template to cut the leaf shapes and then wrote every guests name on a leaf, then taped it to the branch for the centerpiece. So cute.
And of course eventualy the tryptophan catches up with everyone on thanksgiving. Though if you look closely my dad caught us taking pictures and stuck his tongue out at us. naughty dad!!!

Love the white board! I do a by-the minute schedule like that, too. Then each bowl and serving spoon is set and ready with little sticky notes in them as to their contents. It helps so much! I also have a list to the side with ALL the dishes and xtras (like olives) listed so that I don't forget anything. I'm a little crazy like that!
