Halloween is over. I prefer the pace of Thanksgiving.

That's my daughter Kate. She was Jessie for Halloween....yours truly made the costume (sans the hat and boots which were official Disney sanctioned products). Last month brought a lot of hustle and bustle, parties and costume making.. Halloween was fun, but I am looking forward to the relaxation of Thanksgiving.

I enjoy that there are not really very many Thanksgiving decorations to put up and take down. I think it is perfect to have this holiday to reflect and enjoy before we all get sucked into the madness of Christmas.

Kevin's parents will join us for Thanksgiving this year bringing our holiday total to 6 + 0.5 (Kate)..perfect for taking it easy. What are your plans?
