Feeding an army???

I am sitting here making out my menu for Thanksgiving. By that I also mean my shopping list. So far, I have a legal pad full of things I need to buy. Not just ingredients I need that I already have on hand, things I need to BUY. You would think that I am feeding an army by the amount of food I have to make.

Ok, maybe I don't HAVE to, but I feel like I NEED to. I can't do simple. If you know me, you know that about me. Everything I do gets out of hand! I try, really I do! I just seem to make mountains out of molehills! :)

Back to Thanksgiving. Why in the world do I feel like I have to make 6 kinds of pies? That's right, SIX! This is not an exaggeration, I am really going to make 6 different kinds of pies. I think I need someone to smack me. I do this every year, feed the whole family with virtually no help, and get very little thanks for the job I do. I guess I enjoy it or I wouldn't do it right? I need a little reassurance here!

I guess we will see how things turn out this year. I have added another child to my family, and she is still pretty needy :) I do enjoy having everyone over at my house. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the holidays. Alot of things happened in 2006 that made me not enjoy them very much. I did cook Thanksgiving dinner, but I didn't do much for Christmas. That is not like me at all. It was bad. Trad put up the tree-bad. Only the ornaments Braden made at school on the tree-bad. I have promised to redeem myself this year. My house is gonna look like the freakin' north pole!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! (Pass me the Tylenol)

I need one pecan, one pumpkin and a French Silk. Maybe an apple and just a slice of buttermilk. Guess I better get baking, too.
