The day before Thanksgiving was a busy one. We were hosting my family this year, and even though everyone brought something, we still had lots of work to do. The boys retreated into their caves for the day while the girls and I got to work. I had so much fun cooking with them. We turned up the tunes and danced and cooked the day away. I kept thinking about how happy I was cooking with them.
We made the pretzel jello crust. Cornbread for the stuffing. Cranberry Sauce. Brined the turkey. Made place cards and cornucopias. Set the table. There was a bit of drama when I assigned Josh to finish the place cards when Emma went outside to play for a minute. Emma wanted the WHOLE job. We need to cook together more often!
It was a great day!
