You sit here and I will sit there!

Hi there! I am soooo excited! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving at my house! We always go to hubby's Aunt's house for the actual day and I really miss cooking (and the left overs!). Big grin! So, I decided this year we would have our own Thanksgiving at home! We are going all out and having a full menu! Turkey, gravy, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, corn, mac and cheese (son's request!), rolls and pumpkin pie! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! I have to say though that this year I am feeling a little sad. Our oldest son will be driving down the day of Thanksgiving, but will have to drive back home that night. He also won't be able to make our dinner tomorrow because of his work schedule. I really miss him and it makes him feel really far away at times like this.

I wanted to do a little something special to sit at each plate! I just wanted my people to know how much I love them and that they are all very special to me! So, I made these little name tags to sit at each of their places. I kept them all simple and wrote little notes on the inside of each one. I was tempted to add some bling and flooooofy embellishments, but decided simple was the way to go! I used a retired SU! set called Kids at Play to make 3 of these and used Bear Necessities to make hubby's! I used my Just Rite Stampers to stamp the names. These were a lot of fun to color! I plan to leave a little chocolate bar along side each of these! :)

My day will start in the morning with making pumpkin pies!! Did I mention how excited I was?!!! I cannot wait! I hope that you have a wonderful night! I will be back soonest! :)
