I am curious as to what everyone did for Thanksgiving.  We had a family dinner and amazingly everyone enjoyed the dinner without overstuffing themselves. We do have quite a few desserts leftover, but this is a good thing. I also came home with the Turkey frame as usual so that I can make Turkey Soup that I love. How did you do?

Recovery is right!!!! As great as it was to have my son home for a few days it was just as nice to send him on his way yesterday with 2 turkey sandwiches for the trip.  And again it is wonderful when my grandson spends A NIGHTonce in a while but when he wants to visit with his uncle 3 nights is a bit much for me (and him I think).
We get into our set routines and we forget what it is like to have more people around. On the other hand you realize what great adults they have become.  Maybe the old saying is true "absence makes the heart grow fonder".    One more thing to be thankful for.

We had just the right amount of everything, hardly any leftovers.  Of course, I brought the pies and there were just a few slices left along with a few deviled eggs.

I loved your responses. Niki P you really are in sync with me. I am delighted that my son has now moved closer to where I live since I have had my children living in three different states and not the one I was in. My son spent this week with me and I am ready for a rest. I guess I am really getting old, but I understand my Dad.  He used to say when my sister and I  visited with the his six grandchildren, and our spouses, of course, "We enjoyed your visit, its time to go."

I am wondering what happened to the post I mad a few minutes ago. I was agreeing with Niki P about how wonderful it is to have your children visit, but how much our life style changes. It is nice to see them leave and come back after a little while. The extra cooking, cleaning, etc. is really a strain. I understand my mother's reluctance to wanting to live with her children if it ever became necessary, nearby is one thing, but in the same house is too revealing.

For Thanksgiving we had us, of course, our son, his sweet little girlfriend, her brother and momma for dinner.  Every one ate until they could not eat another bite.....we ate at 1P so that made pie our supper!!!!  Who doesn't like pie for supper?

As for recovery and left overs.....we always buy a package of dinner rolls to make little turkey sandwiches.  I also made several "bowls" of stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn and turkey for my son to take home and included a container of gravy so he could have several suppers on the fly!!

We had our sons and my brothers for Thanksgiving.  Since I had had knee surgery the beginning of November, my sons did the majority of the cooking and all of the setting up and cleaning afterwards.  They also brought food to my sister in law who is paraplegic and her aid and the elderly woman who lives upstairs from her.  My youngest son lives four hours away, so he spent several days with us.  It was so nice to have him here.  So sorry to see him leave to go back.
