Happy US Thanksgiving!

Well now... It's Thanksgiving all over again in our household! *L*

We live in Canada... Thanksgiving for us was in October... But today is a special day for us all!

I signed up (with the brilliant idea...) to feed the Missionaries today! Thought it would be neat! Our girls get to learn about a different Country (and their holiday) and the Missionaries get a little piece of home.

As well, one of the Missionaries that helped me become baptised is flying in (from the States) and joining us for today's Thanksgiving dinner! Geee! I'm so excited to see Sister Buck!! :D

On the menu today are the following (nothing 'fancy'):

Main Course:
Homemade Cranberry Sauce (a first for me!)
Veggies - Green Beans and Corn
Homemade Gravy
Homemade Mashed Potatoes with Chives (all on my own, Tyler's at work and this is usually his specialty!)

Homemade Pumpkin Pie! (Geee! I even used my mix master for the first time ever! Only took four months!)
Whipped Cream

Pop - Coke, Pepsi, Ginger ale (w/cranberry too!), Sprite
Juice - Peach, Apple
Cranberry Fizz (First time trying it out, hope it works!)
Soda Shop Cola (Sooooooo good! And easy to make!)

I'm really hoping everything turns out. I've already made the pie, have the potatoes scrubbed... veggies are ready to go.... Drinks are in the fridge... And the Turkey will go in the oven right before I take Emma to school!

Today's schedule go as follows:
Make table bigger
Take Emma to school and DH child goes home
Clean the house
Make the basement ready for Sister Buck to sleep in (bed prepped, etc.)
Organize the house
Run to store
Pick up Emma from school
Keep cooking, cleaning, laundry
Tyler home from work
Place table (including the homemade menu's I made!)
Missionaries and Sister Buck show up for 6:30pm dinner (they really can't be late because...)
Zac's Birthday Bash Concert in Edmonton (starts at 7 goes until 11:30pm. We'll be late and Sister Buck is coming with us!)

We have a ton going on tonight! And then tomorrow I have the DH Kid coming at 7:15am and Emma has school! *L*

Here's hoping that I can have everything ready for 6:00pm.... This will be the first holiday dinner that I've made... And mostly on my own! Geee!

I'll keep you posted! And take photos!

More soon!

Are you sure your first name isn't really Molly? That's pretty awesome, and reading your menu made me really hungry!
