GATHER.  What this means to me is family getting together.

I am so excited that in one week, my southern belles are coming up from down south to spend the holiday with us as they do every year.  Every year it excites me to no end.  It is so much fun to see my daughters in the kitchen with their aprons on as they prepare the fabulous feast.  I enjoy the fact that I get to watch.  I’ve hosted my share of Thanksgivings, and now it is my turn to sit back and relax.  Most of the preparations are done on Wednesday as it is quite hectic on turkey day.  And when my oldest son and his family arrive, we will enjoy some wine and h’orderves.

This year it will be the grandchildren’s turn to get in the kitchen and help.  They will be making an assortment of cookies to start off the holiday season.  I look forward to watching their smiles as they come up with their own unique designs for their treats.  I’m sure it will warm my heart and be a wonderful memory for all involved for years to come.
