Fave Thanksgiving Traditions

It's nearly 2 pm as I write this. (Sorry, I got a slow start today.) The turkey is being heated in the oven. Just need to heat up the sides soon. I'll probably start in a minute or so.

Mr. Brice is putting together our baby's dresser/changing table so we can start washing baby clothes and put them away. (Right now our living room is overrun with bags and boxes of baby gifts because my friends here in DC threw me a baby shower on, I feel so honored with the overwhelming generosity. Amazing! And I'm so very, very thankful.)

Anyway, I'm banging away at the keyboard, trying to get some revisions done while Thanksgiving dinner cooks.

This morning I've been engaged in some of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions, such as watching the Macy's Parade and the National Dog Show. I *love* the dog show!!! It's asbsolutely one of my favorite traditions.

Just seeing all those dogs is so fun. They're so sweet. My little Bailey is so intrigued watching them. My only complaint is that it's only purebred pedigreed dogs. OK, fine, those are nice. But give me a shelter mutt any day.

As far as I'm concerned, the Chow Lab should be an official breed eligible for the Dog Show. Of course, Bailey is pretty enough to be a show doggie, but he's DEFINITELY not well-behaved enough. LOL!

Anyway, a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving to you and your family and friends.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! I have to agree with you about the dog shows. Would love to see a mixed breed show!!

  2. I usually do the family thing but this year it was all about me, a bed, and warm dog bodies.

    I even ate. Had tater tots. The seasoned ones. Woohootie!

  3. We always watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation after dinner/before bed. Gets us in the holiday spirit!

  4. YAY! Hope you guys had a wonderful day.
