My kids and I are having a great time this evening preparing a couple of pie crusts and pies, cranberry sauce and stuffing. Tomorrow morning we'll prepare and start cooking a great looking 14lb kosher turkey, go to the airport and pickup Jay (Puppy80), who is flying in from Chicago to join us. Then home to prepare mashed potatoes, roast sweet potatoes, baked onions, green beans, and gravy.

In the evening we'll join my sisters, their families and my mother for desserts and a soak in the hot tub. Can't wait.

I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday.
