Getting Ready For Thanksgiving

This year we are having Thanksgiving at our house and my husbands parents, my mother, and my grandmother are coming.  Including us that makes 10 people.  I love cooking feasts.  There is nothing more fun and I find the holiday bird easier than making other meals because I just turkey bag it.

The day before thanksgiving (today) I am trying to get all the cooking possible done and clean and prepare.  That way tomorrow I don't stress and rush around.  I want to enjoy being with my family and not feel like it is more of an ordeal than a holiday.

Today I baked the potato dinner rolls, Carmel rolls for thanksgiving breakfast, the candied yams (just need to put them in the oven tomorrow), pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and a chocolate cream pie.  Tomorrow all I'll have to make is the turkey, stuffing, and gravy.  Other people are bringing mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, jello salad, deviled eggs, snack trays, and cider.  I'm also providing sparkling cider, milk, juice, coffee, and pop.  My turkey is happily brining in the fridge, my china is sparkling and set in the dining room ready to be put out.  The house is clean (for a family with a two year old and a 6 and 7 year old).  So I am really looking forward to tomorrow!
