To host my first Thanksgiving ever!!
Our 'fine' china has been unpacked. You must understand that it wasn't packed away simply because we moved. It was packed up because that's how it was shipped to us 9+ years ago!! We have never used it!! It is very pretty. Not sure it's what I would choose now, but I do still love it and I can't wait to use it!!
I'm trying to plan out exactly what time I need to do what on Thursday morning...and I'm SO thankful that my hubby will be home to make us some 'real' mashed potatos and help with the children. It's going to be a great day!
I've been trying to think of a new tradition to start this year. Not that we will have Thanksgiving in our home every year from now on, but you never know. I have some things rattling around in my little brain so we'll see what really happens.
What about you? What are some of your traditions?
I previously mentioned that I would make the same foods we've had all my life, but different. I wasn't trying to freak my family out...I simply meant that they won't be family recipes. This whole hosting thing is a big enough deal without me trying to measure up to the better cooks in the family!!
