This year, we stayed home and kept things easy. It seems that as I get older I’m all for easy. We ordered everything from Claim Jumpers and Kayla decided to make candied yams and Jacob wanted to make pumpkin pie. Both came out surprisingly tasty. But the hard stuff – turkey and ham – came already made so nothing for me to stress about on my end. I did buy a turkey and I’m baking it today, Saturday, so we can have turkey everything over the next few weeks. I know, it’s weird. But it works for me so that’s how I do it. I remember my mom doing the same when we were younger. A huge turkey on Thanksgiving for the big family gathering and a smaller turkey just for us to enjoy over the next few weeks.
I spent the holiday break crafting on my projects and spent Black Friday on the first clue of Bonnie Hunter’s mystery QAL (Quilt-a-long). There’s only 50-9 patches so I hope I can get those done by Monday!
