Time passes...Thanksgivings coming!

I know I haven't been faithful on here everyday. I have been glued to the TV watching the during and after elections. It is a day that will be writtend down in our history books. It is a day that we hopefully have taken down the racial barriers that have haunted the American people for many years. Now with that said lets talk about the holidays coming up.

I haven't been painting as much as I would like to or should. I have been distracted by a little guy. He's 14 months old and well that's the age where they are SUPER curious about everything you are doing. He loves my paint room and well frankly I do to, that's why I try to keep him out of there. Hehe.

Some of my favorite things about the upcoming holidays are the delectible foods. Thanksgiving is and always has been a great time for my family to get together. Well both of my parents have passed away in the last 3 years but the tradition still carries on. I get up at the crack of dawn on Thanksgiving Day and start cooking cornbread, and basting my turkey. I am so excited in the morning to do all of this. I will be doing it without my hubby this year because he is away for Thanksgiving. But my thoughts weigh heavy on his return. Once the dressing is prepared I stuff the Ole bird separate the skin and season and butter it. Then I place it in the roaster and the cooking begins. We have sweet potatos, mashed potatos, green bean casserold, rolls, gravy, home made dressing, and pumpkin pie. Of course don't forget my favorite beverage good olde southern sweet tea...I have to have that everyday. I just thought I would share some of our traditions with you now share with me some of the things you do for traditions.

I love Thanksgiving too. Both my parents are gone as well and since I learned to cook the feast like mom used to so everyone comes to our home.

I'm sorry your husband will be absent. May he come home safely and soon.

Have a great day. :)
