No Work until Tuesday

But so much to do.I am lucky, I am not cooking Thanksgiving dinner and my family is happy about it.  I am really a terrible cook - the only thing I can do correctly is the Turkey - but forget the rest, so my kids are taking over. Well I also make a breakfast in the Crock Pot -and pies - so the kids come over for breakfast and pie - then they all go home - and I travel around to their houses - eating like three times. 

  I do have to make my special Snacks - family recipe passed down from my mom - it is a fun snack mix, I make it, my sister, my brother - and we all use the same recipe, but they all taste different... It has curry and garlic in it - so the smell of them cooking is vivid, and it only comes once a year - you only make them at Thanksgiving - Christmas, it marks the beginning of the season.

 Tomorrow I am off to the craft store - I have to get the materials for Grandkid craft day - even though I do have a bin full of things, but need to pick up a few things.

Instead of shopping on Black Friday - I take all the grandkids for the day, so their parents can shop, and we do Crafts for Christmas.  It is a wonderful tradition we do - the first of the Christmas season.  Some of the kids will then go to the Christmas Tree Lighting in Clinton Square.  Not me.  I will start to decorate for Christmas - I can't wait to put up the Christmas, and take down the Fall.

Lots of pictures coming soon

So blessed the window on the Truck is fixed - the wonderful repair man cleaned the inside of my truck WOW...  So blessed to have so many Christmas Family traditions and the season is starting soon
