I'm not blogging about Thanksgiving...

I'm not blogging about Thanksgiving.

I'm not telling you about the ten wonderful days we got to enjoy our friends being in town and their precious children who are inextricably a part of our crazy family,


or how much we enjoyed being lazy and taking our time with all the preparation instead of rushing to make things perfect.
 

I'm not going to tell you what kind of rolls we ate,


or document the recipe for my stuffing,


or tell you how my cute husband, Marc, makes his Butternut Squash.


I'm not going to give you my secret for delicious gravy that isn't from a can,


or our favorite potatoes for mashing.


No, I'm not blogging about Thanksgiving, or how I figured out the most festive drink to drink,


while I watched the Macy's Parade,


and the kids pleasantly occupied themselves,


No, I'm not blogging about Thanksgiving. Because I'm still simmering and enjoying it.


I'm not blogging about Thanksgiving because I want to enjoy that I enjoyed my company and the food.


I'm not going to tell you where we cut corners and where we cooked from scratch,


or how delicious the turkey was and all that went into ensuring that happened.


I'm definitely not telling you about the sides,


or how we managed seven children in the house for ten days.



I won't tell you about how I struggled to finish what was on my plate despite trying desperately to put the smallest portions possible of everything on it.


And I'm not giving you the secret to my chocolate cake frosting,


or whether or not the littles who helped make it liked eating the fruits of their labor.



I'm not telling you about Gary and Crosby and how much I love them and wish they weren't moving to South Carolina.


I will tell you how much I enjoyed ENJOYING the holiday with my cute husband,


and my sweet nephew, Asher, who makes my heart so happy,



and our clever kids who insisted on inventing three different mouse traps to catch the lone little mouse we spotted running around,



and how happy we are that we refused to go shopping with everyone else, and instead chose to snuggle on the couch.


But seriously, I'm NOT blogging about Thanksgiving!
