My house has emptied and the floors have been cleaned. I guess that Thanksgiving is over. We had so much fun and I can't remember the last time a week flew by so quickly. Every moment seemed to be filled with cooking cleaning, laughing, talking, envying Oprah's Favorite Things audience, or candy factory tours. It has been made abundantly clear to me that Thanksgiving is a lot of work, but I really enjoyed it and it only comes once a year right? Thies year'rs baking/cooking list included:Mostly it was just so much fun to be together and watch JJ get to play with his cousins and family he doesn't get to see much. Joel and JJ were fast friends again and it was so fun to watch them call each other's names and give hugs.
