       If you're not hosting Thanksgiving at your home this year,

       what do you take with you where you will be celebrating?

I am not hosting. Nor am I making anything. I have three Thanksgiving dinners to attend with my husband and children.

I was up front about it, talked to my grief Counselor and it would not be a good idea to put so much stress on myself this year.

My mom lost her battle to Cancer July 7th,, 2012.

My grandma died from liver disease Sept 10th 2012 [dads step mom].

My best guy friend killed by a drunk driver August 26th 2012

My paw paw lost his battle to liver cancer Sept 26th 2012 [moms dad].

I will just be trying to make it through the first holidays without them here. Especially without my mom. She's missing my youngests first Christmas.

We're having it down the street I think.  We are having dinner bought this year because I'm still sick and I just don't think I can handle cooking for 3 days straight this time around.

But I will be making 2 pies, a cake, warming up the rolls and possibly making a salad.  I can deal with that.  :)

When I don't host I take pecan pie, lemon basil pasta and sweet potato casserole.
