Hi everyone! Hope everyone is well! I just made a big pot of escarole and beans, yum! Now I'm sitting down at my island to write to all of you! Gino is pulling on my leg, and Joey is eating a cookie. Typical day at the Gorga residence! Thank you all so much for your input on getting Antonia to sleep in her bed, I'm definitely going to try some of them. Joe and I were reading them together last week trying to decide which one to do! I want you all to know I read each and every one of your comments, so keep them coming!
So glad I got to show you all what Thanksgiving is like at my house! I have a huge family and I just want to say thank you to my mom, sisters, aunts, and cousins! I would be nothing without you guys! You are all so amazing! We take turns having holidays, and everyone always helps out. I really enjoy prepping everything with them and taking on the work load on together. Is there something about Thanksgiving that makes men sleepy? I don't know why they always take naps on this holiday. Oh let me not forget, we always watch the football game too. I love to entertain and have people over, Joe and I are known for that. The more the merrier! I spent two days prepping and cooking, and it was all worth it in the end. I cannot thank Kathy enough for her incredible deserts! Do you know how much time that must have taken? And she is happy to do it! She loves it, and she is extremely talented. Believe it or not, they tasted even better than they looked! We have never spent Thanksgiving at home together, this is the first time, but I did go on vacation with her and her family twice on Thanksgiving. I think it was confusing when I said it in my interview, I meant this year we were all going to be together with my family too! It's days like these that I feel so grateful for the life I live. Sometimes I sit and think, why me? Why am I so lucky to have all of this, a wonderful family, healthy children, and a great husband I'm in love with? But instead of wondering on days like Thanksgiving I say, "Thank you, God!" It reminds me to be a good person, and that's how I can show my thanks.
