Happy Thanksgiving

Big plans for Thanksgiving?  We are hosting both sides of the family this year.  One on Friday and the other on Sunday.  Thursday we plan to help out at our church's community Thanksgiving Dinner.  I have an apple pie to prepare for that day to donate.

Friday, my family will come and we plan on eating out and then dessert at our home.  This will be a smaller group with my parents, brother and his wife and my husband and son.

Sunday, my husband's family will be coming over and we plan to do a shrimp boil.  We are using Paula Deen's recipe:  This will be fun. Everyone will have already had turkey so we wanted to do something different.  You put paper or wax paper on the table and just roll the food out onto the table.   This is a bigger group of about 13 people.

My daughter and family will be coming by Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving on their way to her husband's family.  I'm looking forward to seeing them and playing with the girls.

Please have a Blessed Holiday.

I have been very busy this last month and haven't been able to post for awhile.  I have gone to three conferences where I exhibit for my company and also have had a cold, so I've either been away or not feeling well.

I have been able to keep up reading my blog reader, so I have kept up with that aspect of blogging.

One exciting thing that has happened since I last posted, is I had a birthday!  That in itself is not that exciting, but my husband bought me an ipad ... that is exciting!  I love technology and so love to get some of the new toys.  I'm really enjoying it and learning about new apps to download.

One of the fun toys on the ipad is Facetime.  I'm going to play with that soon and post a funny picture soon.
