DD has checked in and reported that he is headed to PA for an Arby's fix. St8upwithatwist is hanging out with friend in Houston. And Kailyn is going to have some quite time alone. Sounds like the GingerSnaps are making some FABULOUS holiday plans!
Miss G has pulled out all the drag queen hostess stops again this holiday season! That smart gurl farmed out most of the menu, so all she has to make is the turkey and cranberry sauce, plus some dinner rolls. Brother John is going to be the resident sommelier, and everyone else is bringing sides, etc.
It takes a while to get the house ready for 16 guests, so Miss G has already started getting everything set for the big day. The regular table won't seat that many people, so she's rearranged the furniture and brought in banquet tables to accomodate the crowd. Jackson and Shelby seem to think that daddy has created a stage for them to put on an adorable show, but what they don't know is that if they don't straighten up real quick they are going to find themselves banished to the utility room until sometime in 2010!! As Miss G has been washing and rinsing all the things she'll need to set the table, she's been laying them out, and no one wants to eat off of a table that a cat has been crawling on, so now she's having to rewash what she's already done! Grrrrrr! I love my babies but they are taxing my patience!
Meanwhile, the turkey is soaking in it's brine bath so it can be moist and delicious! In it's 22 quart "poultry spa", it looks like a wicked, oversized science experiment! Luckily, Casa del Ginger has plenty of refrigeration, so the big lug could go out in one of the outdoor fridges and not take up valuable space in the house!
Oh, and to make it all worse... Celia's in Mexico for the Holidays, so Miss G has to clean the house herself! Ewe! How unthoughtful of the housekeeper to want to be with the family she hasn't seen in over a year, right when Miss G is starting the entertaining season!
So, what is everyone else doing for the holidays?
