Today is Thanksgiving for our family. We are celebrating a day early because Emily can make it, and Aaron, and Mali. Poor Mirielle though, she is working every day until Saturday. Nurses have the worst schedules because patients in hospitals still need care on holidays.
So the turkey is going in the oven soon, and the onions and celery need to be cut for the stuffing, the potatoes peeled and the squash prepared. There is still cleaning to be done, too. I spent yesterday making pies. Blueberry, Key lime, chocolate, pumpkin, and a keto pumpkin cheesecake....for me. (less than a half cup of honey to sweeten the whole thing, cream cheese, just butter and a little coconut flour for a crust...)
Emily is coming over early to help, and I am really excited for today. Benjamin won't be here from Washington state, Samuel won't be here from Washington D.C., and Abigail and Margaret won't make it from Norway. And then Mirielle will be working. But the rest will be here, plus a few friends, making 16 at the table.
Maybe some pictures later:)
