And if you're in Canada and already had Thanksgiving, what did you do? Who has/had the kiddos this year?
W&C's mom mentioned to them on the phone that they are "welcome" to come to dinner with her at her friend's mom's house, but she has yet to talk to Neely about it. I refuse to spend my Thanksgiving on the road dropping off and picking up kids, so unless she plans on having them overnight Wednesday, it's not going to happen.
DH is off on Thursday. YAY!! He's a nurse so we lucked up this year and he's off on Thanksgiving AND Christmas day! We are going to be having dinner at my IL's. They're wonderful! I'm planning on making the turkey, a pan of low fat/cal hashbrown casserole, and sweet potato balls. My son had wanted to go to Alabama so he could see my family and his Dad but it's just not happening. The toqure (sp?) converter went out on the car and it cost almost 1000 to fix. Now there is a problem with the alignment. I think we have to replace the ball joints & maybe more. They oredered the parts but can't get to it till Monday. I can't even drive the car much less go out of state. I'm glad to have him with me though.
Oh yea, I'm planning on using mini marshmallows this year and either adding pecans with the coconut on the outside or just omiting the coconut. These things are like a 2 person serving for one ball if you use the big marshmallows. They are yummy though.
I also thought about using crushed gramcrackers instead of the coconut to make them like mini pies too but DH vetod that
We're home as always. Dh is a chef/restaurant manager so he's working that day & Fri- Sunday. But he's still cooking. We like to have our meal at dinner time anyway.
My youngest dsd is coming to stay with us. She is a complete joy & the kids & I have so much fun with her. My MIL is also coming for part of the time. She'll stay in a hotel with a pool so the kids can go swimming. That will be fun!
Oh and we'll put up & decorate the Christmas Tree!
She called to talk to Neely on Sunday and asked to have the kids on Wednesday night overnight. So it looks like they'll get to visit with their mom and sister. I'm excited to have a little break from them, to be perfectly honest, especially since our school district closes for the whole week of Thanksgiving!
This is not our year to have the kids for Thanksgiving, so we did the big feast thing last Sunday. It was great!
We are flying to Minneapolis to spend the actual Thanksgiving with my husband's family. We are bringing our infant daughter so she can see all her relatives (we live far away from both extended families). The older kids were bummed they'd be missing out on seeing grandparents and cousins, so we all did a road trip a few weeks ago to get them up there for an extended weekend.
