We’ve had a wacky ‘holiday’ weekend. For starters it wasn’t a holiday. On Wednesday while cleaning out the garage Rich pulled down the Christmas tree box. The box ended up in the middle of the living room so up went the tree. We all dreamed of sugar plum fairies opposed to candied yams.
Thursday was business as usual…..kid’s to school, swimming lessons, errands, work…etc. We did manage to have pumpkin pie for dessert and I did some Thanksgiving activities with kids (what is T-day w/o handprint turkeys?) but no turkey and stuffing.
Friday I went shopping but not until 9 a.m., there were no crowds (most people were working) and nothing was on sale.
Saturday we joined 6 fellow Americans and 5 Africans for a ‘proper’ Thanksgiving feast. This is my favorite meal of the year and although my culinary skills are lacking I do make a mean turkey and dressing (Grandma’s recipe) so I offered to bring the bird! As the yummy dinner culminated 20 more Americans showed up…most with dessert in hand. You know how much I enjoy a good cup of coffee but when accompanied by awesome American desserts my enjoyment jumps to a whole new level. I definitely was in hog heaven….pun intended as I ate like a pig!
Sunday the Christmas decorating resumed. So our Thanksgiving was a bit out of order but all in all it ROCKED!
I will leave you with a question. I pulled out my Christmas music while decking the halls. I LOVE Christmas music and have some great CD’s…Harry Connick Jr., Jewel, The Nutcracker, even Elvis but I want some new tunes this year.
Help me out…what is your favorite Christmas CD?
