A very nice day!

One thing I love about Thanksgiving is homemade turkey soup.  I remember the smell that would fill the house as a kid when my mother would cook up a pot.  I never loved the vegetables so she would sit and remove everything except the turkey.   I am not great in the kitchen but I make a grand attempt with my soup.  I dropped the carcass into the pot around 9 this morning. Celery, carrots, onion all which I will remove.  What can I say, one good thing about homemade is it is made my way! The house smells wonderful.

Yesterday was a very nice day.  Watching the parade with the girls was a pleasant start to the day.  They love to sing and dance around with the performers.  The big balloons are always a hit.  My brother came over for a few hours and the kids had a blast.  Frank did a great job with the Turkey.  And for desert, the extremely untraditional, yet totally delicious chocolate cupcakes made by Frank and the girls.

I was a good day!  I enjoy spending time with my brother’s family and look forward to Christmas!
