Today I'm taking care of all baking in preparation for tomorrow's feast at the in-laws' house. I've got desserts, both gfcf and not, and my homemade cranberry relish done--and it's only 3:30. Yipee! Tomorrow will be all about relaxing and enjoying time with my husband and kiddies. No stressing for me this year!
I'm not going to get to see my family (mom, brother, grandmother, stepfather, uncle) until Christmas, which is pretty sad. I haven't had a Thanksgiving with my mom in twelve years; I always had to work over the holiday, so making the trip to her was never an option. Now that I've transitioned into staying home full-time, I thought I'd get to have turkey with Mom. Alas, it wasn't meant to be this year, but hopefully next time. Actually she'll only be a two-hour drive from me starting in January, so the trip will be much shorter. Right now the long drive can be torture. Try driving for 6 hours with two rowdy kids and you'll know what I'm talking about.
