The leftovers have been packaged. The kitchen is clean. The guests have gone home. And I have no idea how this can possibly be, but I am HUNGRY!? I guess when you are busy cooking and running around, you don't eat a lot. I am craving a turkey sandwich with mayo and cranberry sauce and stuffing on white bread!! But I will wait until tomorrow when we are up in Big Bear. For the past three years, my family has stayed here in town, and had our Thanksgiving with our kids and their kids. It is much easier for the little ones, who get to have their afternoon naps, and come fresh and happy to the dinner table. But as I told my Mom this morning, I have a pang in my heart. Because even though I know that for right now, this works better for my family, it is hard to not be with my Mom and Nana, and brothers as I have always been on the holidays. But we are all heading up to Big Bear in the morning to be with everyone for some family fun, leftovers, and Boggle Butt Kicking!!
I did miss not having our middle daughter Erika and her little boy Noah with us today. They were spending it with her boyfriend's family, and we missed them. Here is a little bit of how we spent our day.
After dinner, the girls got the giggles and put on a dance show in the living room for us.
I will be back in a few days with some pictures of our fun in Big Bear. And The Christmas Season will be in full swing!
