We haven't spent the holiday with his family in at least 8 years. I thought it was about time to do so and invited them to our house. We'll see how it goes. Out of the 7 siblings, I'm not sure who will be here. One brother we haven't heard from and one's girl friend (wife?) just had a baby by C-section yesterday. Yeah, I don't know if they are married or not, that's how distant we are from them.
To get a head start on the two days of feasting, I started my cooking today. Well, I haven't really cooked anything yet, but I figure if Mrs. Smith and the Jolly Green Giant can prepare things and freeze them to cook later, then so can I. I have two pumpkin pies sitting in the freezer and a roasting pan of dressing as well. I will get a few more things ready to freeze for later preparation and set it out next Wednesday. Now if a magic fairy would come and clean the house, I'd be set!
