    I have my hunters this week  (deer hunting season started yesterday) Next week is the big turkey day followed by the decorating committee luncheon on Monday then the party at the end of the week.  Honestly this is the largest party I do each year and to me it is easy peasy.

    Everybody else thinks this is amazing.....not so much for me, as I have been doing this for so long it is STOP  (standard operating procedure)
