While most everyone else had a long off, I was busy working. I don’t get the luxury of having that holiday off so Labor Day meant something different to me than it did to you. That’s okay though because I have to support myself and my daughter. Such is the life of a retail worker.
I do hope that each and every one of you had a great holiday weekend. Most of all, I hope it was a safe one for you.
Lady Bug and I had a fabulous time at my parents’ house this weekend for the Thanksgiving holiday. We ended up bringing the cute little Oreo Cookie Turkeys and deviled eggs. Lady Bug helped me with both. Lady Bug wanted to eat most of the ingredients to the turkeys but I managed to get her to assembleÂ them. I told her once we brought them to nana’s house she could eat a few more.
We had a full house this weekend. My parents’ hosted 30 people for Thanksgiving. Before we had our big meal we all went around the room and shared one thing we were thankful for. I always cry when I hear some of the things people mention for which they are thankful. Lady Bug said she was thankful to get to help mommy make the turkeys and deviled eggs to share with everyone. It was really cute and sweet all at the same time.
After everyone ate we enjoyed some coffee and sweets and played a few board games. That’s always one of my favorite parts of the holidays. I love just sitting around and playing a game or two with my family and friends. We had a fantastic Thanskgiving this year!
This year Lady Bug and I are visiting my parents for Thanksgiving. I want to bring something festive to eat and share with our family and friends. I’m not sure if I want to do a dessert or a side dish. My mom always has the best pies and I don’t know that I could really compete with her. I thought about making cute little Oreo Cookie turkeys and having Lady Bug help me put them together. I’m pretty sure she would have a ball putting them together with me.
I bet the turkey treats would get gobbled up quickly, especially if I tell everyone that Lady Bug helped me make them all. Every one loves a cute little kid and anything they make. I think I just might do that. If something better comes in to my mind I might add it along. Deviled eggs are always tasty and easy. I could always bring them too.
No matter what we bring I’m excited to see our family and hope that everyone has a very happy Thanksgiving holiday.
