I will make the cheesecake and sweet potato casserole today.

Tomorrow I will make the stuffings and pies.

Thursday I will...(all in the am)

do the rolls (usually I make them, but this year I bought the frozen ones that have to rise all day)

Start the turkeys (I have 2, 13 lbs)

Peel the potatoes

Make the vegetables

We'll eat around 4pm...My brother's request to be able to watch some football game before he arrives. I'll do the mashed potatoes and gravy last. Everything else will be in the oven staying warm. (well that's the plan) ;P
************************************
Today, is my friend, Marian's birthday. She won't see this...she doesn't use the computer much. But I have a story....the other day I called to see if her family was coming to my house for Thanksgiving...we had discussed it...and then said when's your birthday again? (knowing it was the same week as Thanksgiving, just couldn't remember exact date)
Her reply was the 25th whenever that is...

I got off the phone...

Belle asks, "Mom when's Sis. Marian's birthday, the 25th?"

"Yes"

"Mom the 25th is Sister Marian's birthday AND the day the milk expires!"

ROFLOL...as if the two are related?!?! Yes, that kid is definitely related to her warpped father!!!!

Blessings until next time!
