The table is set and we are ready for Thanksgiving! It was a short work week – that I am grateful for and I am almost done my Christmas shopping -just have some items to buy online! Ya Hoo! Don’t be mad I just love to plan and shop early and enjoy the season without any stress. Well, there is always some stress but the earlier you start the less you have to stress. Fall flew by and we will blink and it will be Christmas. Enjoy every moment with your friends and family. I am so thankful for wonderful friends and family, a warm home, my pup, my health and my family’s health and the holiday season. It really is my most favorite time of the year!
Thanksgiving is almost here, time for good fun and cheer! This year we are cooking a turkey which in years past we usually buy our turkey pies from my favorite place growing up – Raymond’s Turkey Farm. My kids love their turkey pie and fixings and it’s funny as I loved it as a child too. I just was so busy that I did not have time to get there. I do love this time of year for celebrating traditions. I am trying to make fun memories for my kids and continuing on with my goal of doing something fun and different, (and to travel more – whether it’s a day trip, weekend away or vacation) we are headed to a couple fun events this coming weekend including The Boston Ballet’s performance of the Nutcracker and a visit toGreat Wolf Lodge! More on those fun events later.
The girls asked me if they could do the Turkey Trot in our town this year and wanted me to do it with them. Well, I am not a runner – AT ALL – but thought this would be a fun event to do with my kids and it’s for charity (proceeds go to our local food pantry) I have been trying to run every other day but I am only up to 1.5 miles LOL. Believe me this is the most I have ever run – it’s just not my thing- I am trying though….I hope I can make it the 3 miles! So we shall see how this Thanksgiving morning tradition will go. I will not complain though as I am lucky enough to be able to run, my kids are active, my family is here for Thanksgiving so lots to be thankful for!!
