thanksgiving

So my mom, step-dad, grandmother and grandfather came in for thanksgiving weekend. I have NEVER enjoyed my grandparents more than I did this weekend. They were happy, there weren't any negative words thrown around. It was wonderful.

I'm still getting rested from that weekend, but it was good. My popaw is 90 years old. My momaw is 83. They are doing pretty good for their ages, but popaw can't lift himself anymore, and it broke my heart. We had to lift him off the bed, off the couch, out of the wheel chair. My momaw got to rest, and got waited on. She had the time of her life. They got to sleep, and nap together. I will attach pictures soon. They were so cute!

Mom and I cooked thanksgiving dinner. It was REALLY good. I wanna say it was one of the best ones she has cooked. We had, mashed potatoes, turkey, and stuffing. We did have pumpkin pie, and apple pie. It was yummy....thanks to marie calander for that. lol. Egg nog, silk nog, vanilla spice egg nog, pumpkin egg nog.......and i think that is it. There wasn't a lot, but there was a lot to do with all the foods and peeling, cutting, cooking, and helping grandparents while cooking.

I was TOTALLY stressed before thanksgiving, but it was really enjoyable. I love my parents/grandparents. I'm looking forward to Christmas. My brother and his 3 kids, and my mom and step-dad....and then maybe my grandparents. I hope they come again. My brother and his family would love to spend time with grandparents like we did at thanksgiving. It was REALLY a good time with them.
