Yesterday, like many other families, we celebrated Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is my holiday to host and I love it! For one thing, I'm pretty picky about food. To me, it's all about the traditions and I want the food to be exactly the same every year. No funky stuffing please, Stove Top will do just fine!
While I do the majority of the cooking, everyone brings something. We had turkey, ham, stuffing, corn casserole, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and the best mashed potatoes EVER! For dessert we had apple pie, pumpkin pie and two kinds of cookies. Everything was delicious!
In my opinion, one of the best things about the holidays is getting to be around people and forming life long traditions for my kids. My sister, brother and I each have two kids. Growing up there were six grandchildren. It's so great to see our kids running around playing with their cousins like we did.
All in all it was a great Thanksgiving. The only downfall was that Janelle wasn't feeling too great. Thanksgiving and diabetes don't mix! I think I waaaaay under dosed her dinner (either that or she had more cranberry sauce than I thought she did). About two hours after dinner she was over 400! Luckily she was easily corrected and down to 123 at bedtime.
I hope everyone had a happy and blessed Thanksgiving and here's to kicking off the holiday season!
