Are You Making a List?

Have you started making a list yet?
Maybe I should say lists.

Are you hosting a Thanksgiving celebration this year?

Have you made your menu?
Have you gathered your recipes?
Have you started your grocery lists?
Have you planned a cooking time-line?

Are you hosting a Christmas celebration?
The same quesitons apply, and many more.

Pour yourself a cup of eggnog, tea or grab a Coke from the fridge. Sit down and start making your lists. All the planning you do now will help reduce the stress later and help you enjoy instead of endure.

God bless you!
Happy Thanks Living!

Happy at Home
May I suggest?


  1. Visiting from Grace at Home party. Thanks for the reminder. I have not made any preparations for the holidays at all and a list is a good starting place. I noticed you are from the Joplin area. I also am from Missouri but much closer to St. Louis. Nice to meet you.

  2. Great advice. I am not hosting Thanksgiving this year, but I did a few years back and know how important it is to time everything out just right!

  3. This year we will have all of the family for Thanksgiving. Our youngest and her hubby will even be home from touring Europe and Africa on the 3rd of Nov. YIPEE! Can't wait. We have our usual things that are must have's every year. Always like to try something a bit different. Great advice to start early. Each of my kids bring one dish so that really helps cut down on a lot of work. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  4. Hi Jann,
    I talked with my dad just this week about Thanksgiving. I think a little further ahead than they do. ~smile~ I'll know by the end of the week whether it will be here or there. I'm hoping for there because my kids haven't been to their grandparents' house many times. They live far away and usually they come here.

    I'm so happy you'll have all your family together. It promises to be a joyful event, I'm sure.

    God bless!
