Happy Thanksgiving

And for those not in the USA - Happy Thursday!

The turkey is stuffed and in the oven. Potato's are peeled and sitting in cold water on the stove. Things for the green bean casserole are ready to go. Heavenly hash and rolls are arriving with Grandma and Scruffy the dog. Em will do a taco salad - cause Grandpa has not had one since July and we are celebrating him being back to normal and home again. I'll plan to add some rows to Emily's afghan since we hit Joann's on Tuesday and got 6 more skeins of orchid. I also got the knitting needles needed for Aidan's pillow. Maybe I'll even find time to sew later tonight!

My co-leader found a cute craft we'll do with the girls on Monday night. We have some clear ornaments leftover from last year so we'll each make a melted snowman (epsom salt, felt orange nose and whole peppercorns for eyes and buttons). I found that one looking for clear bulb ornaments. They did unicorns last year with them. We will also make these hat ornaments. Should keep them entertained and I have yarn and everyone has tp rolls! We will hand those out when we go caroling next week at an assisted living facility.
