Friends, how was your Thanksgiving? Today I’m sharing a delicious Baked Egg Nog Pumpkin French Toast, but first …

Last week, cleaning our house one day before our guests arrived was essential, so I could pace myself with cooking and getting ready for company.

My goal was to balance the season and quality family time, all at the same time!

One thing that I noticed, as I was sweeping, cleaning the wood floors, dusting (so much dust with a wood stove), cleaning bathrooms, changing sheets, was all the textures and details of how this house was built.

What did holiday hosting look like for the previous owners? How many Thanksgivings did they host in this house?

My heart welled up with tears. I’m not a teary person, but as I was cleaning, a job that is so ordinary, with no glamour involved, I thought about the miracle of family and friends, and the joy that hosting other brings to my heart.

My eyes were opened again to the ordinary chores, just a normal day, that was really not that normal or ordinary.

  1. Yum. I have never done a baked french toast but know I’m missing out because I LOVE french toast. LOL. I think my favorite memory was having my oldest, her hubby, my nephews and inlaws as well as my hubby, youngest and I around the table for a TG breakfast, since oldest was going to be at her hubby’s sisters house for lunch. Hearing everyone laugh and enjoy each other is so nice and cousins who are still just as close now as when they were little even though they don’t get to see each ohter often.
