Thanksgiving

Sunday, November 27th, 2016 10:34 am
This year's Thanksgiving was really spectacular. It was the very first time I've ever hosted anything at my own home. My girl toddler was an angel all day, and I actually ended up baking and cooking two of what was served.

Easy Bisquick Bread which I shall be renaming to Easy Bisquick Muffin Loaf since the texture and taste was far more muffin than bready, and Brown Sugar Glazed Marshmallow Yams. Which I was even more proud of than the muffin loaf. My girl toddler refused to eat them and her father isn't a fan of sweet foods, so that was a bit disappointing. I really thought she'd want some. But no matter. I ate them and enjoyed both immensely.

There was also turkey, naturally, mashed potatoes and vegetables. The entire thing was outstanding. I had loads of fun.

I'll post the recipes next.

Presents

Bought some presents for my girl toddler's birthday and for Christmas. Some toys I think she'll enjoy. Future Aids isn't currently stocking the magnetic construction set I wanted for her. Guess I'll need to find something similar somewhere else.

Going to get her a trampoline. Small one. Enclosure so she can't fall out.

Haven't yet decided if I'll be giving it to her on her birthday or for Christmas.

Still need to get her a Christmas stocking. Don't think I have hers with us. Thought I brought it, but can't be certain.

Maybe some new coloring books. Large array of new crayon colors. She'll love that.

Books from Seedlings, perhaps, that I can read to her. She loves it when I do that.

Teddy bear, maybe. She loves stuffies. Doesn't really need new ones, but it will make her smile. I love doing that. Making her happy.

When I can.

Was thinking of some dress up clothing too. Will see what Amazon has floating around.

Wonder if there will be any nice sales for cyber Monday. On toys. Must be. I mean, it'll be the home stretch to Christmas at that point.

Headache. So tired.

Will write again soon.
