We are making our way to my parents house as I type. As we drive I’m thinking about all things I am looking forward to. The things we do every year. These are the things that just happen without us thinking because it’s just what we do.
We usually order pizza tonight because who wants to cook, right? Weather permitting, and we are looking so far, we run the Turkey Trot race Thanksgiving morning. No guilt eating that second helping of stuffing:) After the race we come home to eat cinnamon rolls, clementines and egg nog and watch the Macy’s parade. Hands down my family puts together the best feast of food. I love looking down the long table filled with family from age 2 to 83. After the meal my uncle always has some sort of crazy game for us all that ensures lots of laughs. The newspaper ads and catalogs are passed out with paper and pens. Grandma needs her Christmas lists! Of course there is always lots of TV watching and napping off the food coma.
And that’s Thanksgiving for us. I love what this day is about. Spending time with ones you love, giving thanks for all that we have and have been given. It’s mellow, relaxing, fun and simple.
What does your day look like? Any special traditions you are looking forward to?
