Thanksgiving Preparations

Sorry to have been so quiet. Nothing exciting is going on here. Just daily life. We aren't planning to travel for the holiday, so it'll just be our sweet family here together. I'm cooking a traditional meal but have taken steps to make it easier. Most things will be made ahead and the turkey will be cooked using the spatchcock method which doesn't take nearly as long to cook as an intact bird. My kids call it "the turkey that went splat". I've cooked one this way before and it was great! We plan on attending Mass, printing out this super cute little turkey in disguise , enjoying the National Dog Show and watching some football, of course.

Enjoy your preparations and the holiday to come!



  1. Wishing you and your family a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!

  2. Well, I for one know that being quiet online usually means being very busy elsewhere!

    You are heading into a very sweet leg of your babymoon journey, Charlotte--lots of cooing, lots of grins, and those irresistible first giggles. Lucky! I wish I were there to hold little Cupcake while you stir the sauce and splatter the bird. :)

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
