Time to give thanks......

It's almost time for THANKSGIVING. I'm already starting to mentally think of everything I need to do to be ready for that week and beyond. I need to make lists of things I need to buy,I need to make a list of everything I plan on cooking,I need to get Christmas cards addressed and ready to go,I need to get holiday pics of us as a family taken this year. Last year,I cheated by taking pics of kiddo in front of the holiday decorations at the local mall and made them up into xmas cards. I want to do a little better than that this year. I'm not going to let it all stress me out this year-there are plenty of other things that are doing that at the moment. The holidays should be enjoyed,not stressed over. What are some of your favorite things about the holidays? What are some of the things you have to have on the table each year? I have to have a turkey,dressing from a family recipe, pumpkin cheesecakes-yes more than 1,and homemade cranberry sauce. I love to cook and cook BIG-so I really get into the cooking mood this time of year.
