Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house we go, right? Lots of us spend at least a little time in the car and on the roads on or around Thanksgiving, shuttling from one relative’s house to another. However, the last thing I want to deal with is holiday traffic, if it can be at all avoided (lol). Thanksgiving is one of the rare holidays that succeed in bringing friends and family from all over the map together. For the first time ever I decided to host Thanksgiving dinner at my home with my family, friends, and friends who are like family. I want to take my time conversing with them all, sharing stories, taking pictures, and creating memories that will last until it’s time for the next Thanksgiving. When all is said and done, I will be sure to finish off with a nice slice of pie, I deserve it.
This Thanksgiving we will eat wonderful foods, drink refreshing liquids and enjoy special desserts prepared with love by Kristy, Chris, Jessica, Wayne and maybe or our military friends who couldn’t travel all the way home to be with the family. As in years past, there will be three NFL games televised: Packers at Lions, Raiders at Cowboys & Steelers at Ravens! Oh YES, we will be watching football on Thanksgiving…. football on turkey-day has become as much a staple in many homes as turkey and pumpkin pie.
