Thanksgiving Eve!

Today is going to be such a great day. Eric is home from work. I am cooking all day in preparation for tomorrow--butterhorn rolls, homemade noodles, brocoli cheese casserole, coconut cake, corn pudding. Today the kitchen will be filled with great smells and absolute yumminess. I will make twice the needed amount of rolls because we like to eat lots of them during the cooking process!

We are getting out the Christmas decorations and decorating today! The kids are SOOOO excited! They will be busy setting up their little trees in their room while I cook up a storm! We are going out on a limb (no pun intended) and putting our Christmas tree in a different spot this year. I know, we are sooo wild and crazy, changing it up like this. We are also one of those few families still living in the stone ages with a tree that is not pre lit...so Eric may need lots of your prayers today :) It is also missing some limbs and beginning to look a bit Charlie Brownish...every year we say it is its last year.

I got a crock pot cookbook not long ago and I am wearing it out! Last night we had chicken and dumplings--they took about ten minutes to put in the crock pot and then four hours later, dinner's ready! They were so, so good and so easy! Today I am throwing some ingredients in and presto! Four hours later we'll have philly cheese steak sandwiches on toasted hoagie buns. This sounded really good to me, for some reason. It's not even 8 am and my mouth is already watering.

So what are you doing for Thanksgiving Eve? Hope it is wonderful and family filled!

We are missing the Grogans! I also cooked part of the day. We played WII Fit all day. It is so much fun. I can't wait for you guys to see Big Doug do the Hula Hoop. Maybe you will see him on New Year's Eve with the party hat on. What is the name of your slow cooker cookbook?
