Christmas is coming too early!
I love Christmas, it is my favorite holiday of the year, but I am not ready to get into the Christmas spirit yet. I went to the Junior League of Plano’s ‘Neath the Wreath event this weekend. It was a beautiful show and I enjoyed it but even my daughter kept asking “Where are the turkeys?” You see, I love Thanksgiving, too. For me, Thanksgiving is the time to sit, relax and enjoy family without some of the craziness of presents and lots of decorations. It is a time to gather and reflect on what I am thankful for this year.
It feels like the retailers and the media are completely overlooking Thanksgiving more than ever this year, trying to bring in those Christmas dollars. It makes me sad! I hope you enjoyed our November issue this month, with the turkey on the cover. I hope you get to eat some yummy food, too, on Thanksgiving day, and enjoy a few quiet days with family and friends.
I love to cook almost as much as I love to eat and I am already pouring over magazines and cookbooks to figure out how to prepare our turkey this year. My kids are already putting in their orders for pumpkin pie, pecan pie and something chocolate, maybe my dad will make his special chocolate cheesecake, mmmmmm… What are your Thanksgiving favorites? Let us know what you will be making for turkey day.
I am going to go dig out my cornucopia and fall decorations and enjoy them for a few short weeks before the kids start begging for the Christmas tree.
We are also going to do the family fun run at the Dallas Turkey Trot, benefiting the Dallas YMCA. Got to burn some of those calories we will be gleefully consuming later in the day. Maybe we will see you out there, too!
