happy thanksgiving!

i hope everyone had a lovely thanksgiving yesterday! we had a nice day as our friend (aunty) shiela took us to Webbs. its a garden center with a lot of stuff going on! the boys picked out their christmas ornaments as they get one each year. we had lunch there and just walked around really. it was nice to get out!

last night i had my groceries delievered and the turkey is huge! i could barely lift it!! i so can’t wait to start cooking it!! we have now upped the number coming to 14 adults and 2 children and 1 infant! wowee…where to put them all? and do i have enough plates?? hmm =) i can’t wait! nor can any of the others! i even have charlie brown’s thanksgiving for everyone to watch as a lot of them have no idea what thanksgiving is all about!!

so today i have to start baking! pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin choc chip cookies, the potato rolls too. tomorrow morning will be the turkey, stuffing and peeling the potatoes and carrots. so i don’t think it’ll be too much really. avril is bringing roast parsnips and potatoes and also a pavlova. jon and anthea if they make it in the evening will bring another desert as well!!

so much awesomeness for tomorrow!!

oh and happy black friday to any who are braving the shops!

  1. hey janelle… i went to a thanksgiving celebration last night! there was only two americans at it out of about thirty people, lol! was nice though, we had a lot of butternut squash… not sure if thats meant to be a thanksgiving food!
