(You may be wondering how I'm pulling this off while 30 weeks pregnant, with a 4-year-old and 18-month-old underfoot. My secret is this: a LOT of help! My mom, grandma, and mother-in-law are all contributing generously to the meal preparations and my mom has helped me with cleaning my house this week. So I'm not stressed, just excited!)


  1. That sounds positively delicious! Happy Thanksgiving my friend. I'm glad you have help... it sounds like lots of fun but also quite a bit of work!
