Thanksgiving Eve...

I am very excited about Thanksgiving. =) I actually got the tiniest bit involved in food preparations today...I grated carrots for a carrot cake until my fingernails turned orange. Once upon a time, a few years ago when I was taking a home ec class (ha...don't ask me about the macaroni and cheese I made), I actually made this carrot cake all by myself. And it was good. This time, I only grated the carrots and mixed up the frosting. I confess, the main reason I volunteered to mix the frosting was because that meant I got to lick (er...clean off) the mixer spinning things (what are they called?) and the spoon and bowl after it was finished...cream cheese frosting. Wow. I was very close to doing the happy dance my little cousin does when she gets something good to eat.

So tomorrow, my grandparents (my mom's parents) will get here a few hours before lunch, along with my great-uncle (my grandpa's brother). My brother's girlfriend might be coming also, but I'm not sure yet. Mom and Nanny will flutter around in the kitchen. Dad will be in and out, doing different things. Pa will sit in our big chair in front of the window, trying to convince Jack (the fat cat) to get off the window sill and sit on his lap. My bachelor great-uncle will sit on the couch and tell us a lot of interesting news and random trivia. We'll eat a huge lunch with too many desert choices and second helpings. Then we'll all drift to the living room, and after a while, Mom or Dad might ask me to play something on the piano. So I'll play some Christmas songs, while Pa whistles along and everyone else talks. It will be a lovely day.

Tomorrow I'm planning on posting a list of all the things I'm thankful for. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Until next time,
Kristin (missvintagegirl)
