Hi, In case I don’t get to tell you all on Thursday, Happy Thanksgiving!
Normally I enjoy having dinner here at home with my kids. This year the extended Italian side of the family are going to get together and eat, we are meeting in a Church gym, there will be about 200 or so of us, and that’s not even half the family.
Making sure there will be enough food, that’s no problem. Making sure that family members who have been fighting, get along, and maybe even keep their distance…. ahhh that might be a problem. Think of a U.N. meeting, some countries you just know better than to let get near each other. I’m thinking maybe armed guards posted at strategic areas, and, investing in those hand held metal detectors. Now that I think of it, is it too late to tell everyone no metal silverware???
Would razor wire down the tables be too tacky as centerpieces? Maybe Martha Stewart would know.
This is our first Thanksgiving together as an extended family without my Grandmother. My sister and I are gonna miss her snide remarks on how fat we’ve gotten or how old we look. Ahhhh family, gotta love ’em. Now, where’s my Ativan??
Here’s a link to the, Turkey Song…. (Thanks Kat!)
On a more serious note, please go to Jock’s space, Passing Open Windows, and read his entry. It’s Titled, Bountiful Harvest, and it will touch your heart.
BIG HUGSSS, Steph
