Happy Thanksgiving!

Does anyone read blogs on the holidays? In my experience, no. LOL

But here I am anyway. I believe this was created by Leslie at Once Upon a Time and Happily Ever After but both Rebecca Jo & Tanya have posted it, too.

Will you watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? Football? Movies?

We’ll probably watch the parade- or at least have it on. I think M will enjoy the colors and music if she even notices the TV is on. And then the dog show; all three children will like that.

Who does the cooking? Fix anything ahead of time?

In years past we’ve had lunch at my grandparents (it’s ordered in from a family style restaurant) and dinner at K’s grandparents (made by his grandma and his uncle).
This year we’re dining with my mom and dad (food ordered in + a pie from me) and then with K’s mom and dad (food made by his mom + mashed potatoes from me).

What time do you eat the big meal?

We have two. (Yes, it’s as filling as it sounds.) One at noon, another around 4 or 5p. OOF.

Do you set a formal table or keep things casual? Place cards? Kids table?

Very casual. Sometimes my grandma puts the younger folks in the dining room but the youngest kid is 13 so… there’s no true kid’s table.
Place cards were attempted at K’s grandparents house once and it did NOT go over well. Lol

Is the food place on the table or served buffet style?

Buffet style all around.

Ham or turkey? What’s for dessert?

Ham is ew. Turkey (skin) 4ever. Dessert is the norm- pumpkin pie & pecan pie. This year there will be coconut creme pie and a cookie dough tart (made by me).

Does your family have a thanksgiving tradition?

Hmm. Not really. Some years my dad and I go to breakfast. Not this year 😔

Yay or nay to leftovers? Favorite leftover recipe?

No one EVER sends us home with leftovers! I’d take ’em!

What will everyone wear? Dress up or comfy?

I prefer to look nice on the holidays. Most people wear jeans and a nice sweater or something a little more casual.

For what are you most thankful this year?

Moo, K, & the pups. Family. Our health and safety. The ample togetherness we’ve experienced this year. New leadership. Sustaining work. Privilege and luck in navigating the pandemic. God’s love & grace.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, my friends! I hope you’re safe, healthy, and full of deliciousness.

  1. It’s not a holiday here so I’m reading 😉
    Soon there can be a kids’ table again – with M and her generation!

      I’m such a typical American *face palm* I always forget when we have certain holidays that other countries do not. Oops! I think M would want a table to herself, filled with food just for her. Hahaha!


      1. Honestly I think I would want that too. A table of food just for me sounds like heaven 😂

    Happy Thanksgiving! I do read blogs on holidays, because I’m usually not busy the whole day. Also, I hate Thanksgiving. *shrug* hah I hope you had a great day though!!!

      Lol- I’m not a huge thanksgiving fan either. I considered it a throw away holiday that we could travel during… Turns out it’s Kyle’s FAVORITE holiday and he likes being home. (Found that out while ON a trip over Thanksgiving, lol.) Of course he likes it- it’s the most boring holiday. LOL
