preparations and memories

Thanksgiving prep is in full swing in this house. There are batches of dough rising, sweet potatoes are roasting in the oven and cheese grits bubbling away on the stove.
Considering that Christmas is a month away and this little dance in the kitchen will repeat itself, I asked Missy why the two are so close together. She said "those pilgrims couldn't wait for a couple months!" haha
I'm not complaining, the house smells amazing and is getting full with all the girls and their better halves coming home  to celebrate.
My London family celebrated last weekend and they had 48 adults and 22 kids in their home :) I bow my head!!!!

Last night we stopped and had dinner at California Pizza Kitchen. Memories from my first trip to the States came rushing back... fun memories of when my brother was frozen solid after having about 6 or 7 glasses of pink lemonade or not being used to US portions, we couldn't move around after lunch. Can't believe that was seven years ago.
It baffles me how much has happened in those years, the places I've seen or lived in and ALL the people I got to meet and do life with. No matter where I wake up or what the circumstances, I know that I am blessed!

Tomorrow morning we will get up early and be part of the Boulevard Bolt. It's a charity run/walk to raise money for homeless people. I'm super excited and will fill you in tomorrow.
