Good Morning Stitchers!!
I do hope with this post, that yall are safe & healthy.  This is the completion of my "12 Days of Christmas" gift to you.  I hope that you will stitch this design   ;)
Thanksgiving USA is this Thursday.  I have my big ole Tom* at 25 pounds, thawing in the fridge' taking the top level!  We like a Tom, as Toms are more tender*(20 pounds up) than Hens.  Found that out, as I was a butcher, at Winn Dixie grocery back in my work day.  First woman* on meat staff!
My meal includes Homemade dressing(part fresh cornbread with the other part seasoned white-dark bread)which is loaded  with fresh mushrooms, fresh celery, Vidalia onion(from Vidalia, Georgia), VERY light on the normal* seasonings>I hate too much sage...LOL, the juice from the turkey parts that are boiled all Wednesday morning, and neckmeat, (while the liver, giblets, & heart are given to the dogs).  Then, I stuff Tom and make a nest, all around him, with the rest.
Prep the fresh sweet potatoes in tinfoil.  Wednesday-cook potatoes for potato salad.  Cool them down in the freezer then add Hellman mayo, diced fresh red * green bell peppers(from my brother's garden), green olives, celery, chopped fine boiled eggs, salad delight relish, chopped sweet gherkin pickles, and a dill pickle for that rounded sweet-sour taste that I like!  I don't often get potato salad and when I do I make it how I love it!!  I don't do raw onion...I could never develop a taste for it..
Cranberry sauce. Bake the 4 pumpkin scratch made pies(gifts & stop overs)  Another recipe that gets ripped apart by too much seasonings.  I add more cinnamon, but, light on the others!!
Baby Le SUEUR peas.  I got the bag of granny smiths to do apple pie!!  Lastly, scratch made Pecan (south Ga fresh!)pie.  All topped with fresh made whip cream(another 'must have'  for me)
I freeze most leftovers.  I don't get tired of eating all week leftovers but...I have a man!!!  LOL!  He gets tired of them!
Pending watching football games and Joe will do his booger shows.  Surprises me Joe isn't a watcher of football..stops to my room to check on any Tennessee games, or Ga-Fla war game!  Could it be that I have monster TV in my room....that he knows* that I watch football....?  
Yes....I do the holidays.....right now I am watching the Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel in the evenings, which could run into all-nighters!!  LOL!
So, without further ado, here is the final chart of the "12 Days of Christmas" that I designed for you!
