Counting My Blessings!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. For the first time in 26 years I was kicked out of my kitchen after dinner by my son, no less!! He washed all the dishes including silverware and china, while my daughter dried and put away. Not only did they do that but they had cleared the table, which is normal; but they refridgerated and labeled everything!! Today when I went to get everything to make turkey soup, it was all together for me! I'm sooo happy, I could cry - again.

Awesome, Dawn. Looks like someone taught them well and now your efforts were repaid. Congratulations! Truly a great Thanksgiving.

I didn't think I was teaching him as he would always run in the other direction!
