I am thankful for tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tomorrow my daughter Christina, her husband Suj and my grandson Kavi are driving here to Alabama for Thanksgiving!! I am so stoked when they come here, it makes the world just seem right. And....Stina is staying for two weeks longer with Kavi, as Suj needs to get back to work, and then I am driving back to Florida with them to stay until Christmas when my husband and daughter Jenny and Rachel come to Florida to spend Christmas together! By the time I return to Alabama , I will have spent a month with Stina and Kavi! Now that is a good holiday season :)
Stina is coming with me to the BottleTree Craft Bazaar in Birmingham, which I immensely enjoyed selling at last year. And, my head is spinning thinking about all the fun we will have!
I finally took those pictures of the fun things which came my way last week. First, the fabric wall hanging from Stina. It is a great damask looking fabric, but with DEER! I hung it over the couch yesterday and I just LOVE it!
Also, there is the Matryoshka themed Christmas wrapping paper, and paper plates and napkins. Fun, fun, fun! And...Jenny brought me back a pendant from her day trip to a fancy Birmingham Mall. It's a DEER! You might have guessed I love deer AND matryoshkas.

I have been cleaning up a storm these past two days, and tomorrow is cook, cook, cook, day. I always try to precook everything the day before thanksgiving, so we only have to reheat on Thursday, so tomorrow, I make the turkey, butternut squash, eggplant, Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, while my husband works on the dressing, and everyone else is contributing home made cranberry orange sauce, pumpkin doughnut muffins, an interesting grape and cornmeal cake, etc. Of course we already have a pumpkin and apple pie.
I hope everyone has a festive Thanksgiving! I will be thinking about the fun you will all be having too!
