So thanksgiving is over.. YAY! It was great, the first year at my house with my husbands family and my mom. I may have stressed a bit much as I tend to have the need for perfection. I did have a great time though. The stress was worth it and it was nice sitting together playing some games and having great laughs. Continue reading “Holiday madness”
