Happy Thanksgiving!

One of my favorite holidays, and the kick off to my official holiday season! I awoke today to big fluffy snow falling and a warm house. I am thankful for both! I cuddled the cat and put on a pot of coffee while we waited for the parade to come on. Watching the parade has always been a tradition, and what generally goes with it are Pillsbury orange rolls. (Cinnamon rolls with orange-flavored icing) Unfortunately this year, I had no time to go buy a tube of them. Oh well! What's Thanksgiving minus one tradition? Kinda sad actually...but then I got a text from my Mom. My father was on his way to my house. Why? I went outside to greet him as he handed me....a tube of Pillsbury orange rolls! No way! :) So after a hug and a wave I got to preheating the oven, and am now enjoying the parade with a tummy full of orange flavored icing. Mmm! What a great surprise! The rest of the day will include some cross-country skiing and then piling in the truck to go to the parent's house for food and fun. There will be turkey and all the trimmings, a stack of ads for tomorrow's Black Friday, and an evening of board games with the family. Cool! I hope you all have a wonderful day enjoying your own traditions!
