I think I managed to gather enough supplies to not only get us to Turkey Day but prevent us from having to leave the house on the Friday after. I really don't like Black Friday. Its like a yearly Anarchy Fest. I stay home, hiding safe and warm in my crafty room, equipped with multiple cups of coffee and a snack stash.
This year I'm planning on making;
Cream Cheese Mashed Taters
Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake
Fruit Tart Thingy
The Fruit Tart Thingy is a new recipe and I don't remember the actual name of the recipe. I'll let you know how it turns out.
In the meantime last Saturday I stayed home and put together a selection of movie marathons. It took me like half an hour to decide between the Fairy Tale Maration, the Harry Potter Marathon, the Epic Medieval Movie Marathon, the Lord of the Rings Marathon (a 15 hour event that no one should miss!), and the Kaelyn's Favorite Actors Marathon (Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Denzel Washington, and Johnny Depp). I eventually settled on the Fairy Tales Marathon.
With Stardust as my guide, I settled in for a day of laundry, dishes, and cross stitching. Four loads of laundry, one load of dishes, and four movies later... tada!
Mr. Snowman forced me to finally learn to do French knots. I still don't like them, but I can do them. Eight ornaments down, eight to go. Three in progress.
I'm leaving work tomorrow at 2 pm, so I plan to do all my cooking then and have a nice easy Thanksgiving.
