 I like Thanksgiving.  Great food, visitors from out of town, naps.  This year, I was once again in charge of cheddar biscuits, sweet potatoes (thank you, Suzanne), and a dessert (the apple crisp of course).  I've been fighting a little head cold all week, but it didn't stop me from enjoying all the food.  (Last year, I was REALLY sick on Thanksgiving and couldn't taste anything.)  And it was great to see my aunts. 

Here's everyone at the table with plates of food waiting to be eaten:

It took about 15 minutes to eat.  Best meal of the year.

Wednesday night, we went out to celebrate Daphne's good report card.  She picked the gas station Thai place for dinner, and then we saw the new Muppet Movie.  It is awesome.  Really really good.  At one point, during a hilarious scene with singing chickens, I laughed out loud for about 2 minutes straight. I never do that at movies.  And the audience clapped at the end of the movie.  That doesn't happen every day.  So, go see it if you can.  You will be glad.

Cider making has begun again at our house.  One of them is giving off a pretty bad smell.  I hope that means the yeast is doing its job in there.

While Kev has been working on cider, I have been working on projects for my new job helping to plan birthday parties.  Our first paying gig has a princess theme.

And Daphne has been working on learning some Christmas songs at piano lessons.  Sometimes Kev joins her on guitar.  It is one of my favorite things to see/hear.

Sunday, the Daisies are going caroling, which should be very cute. 

I hope you all had a safe and happy Thanksgiving and are enjoying the nice long weekend. 

And now, Christmas.  Bring it.

Birthday planning: So, like a wedding planner -- but for birthdays? Neat-o! :)

You should suggest a "fairy ninja princess" theme to the parents, to see if you get any takers.

I kinda miss Thanksgiving. This year one of my co-workers reminded me on the day -- I had totally forgotten. No pilgrims or Indians here (Australia), so I just forget.
