Plenty to Be THANKful For: Thanksgiving Traditions

Manic Mother

 I’m THANKful For Thanksgiving Traditions!

Thanksgiving in our family is an all-day extravaganza!  We wake up late, watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and get ready for our two feasts.  We start off with Thanksgiving lunch at my parents house around 12pm, stuff ourselves and then head to Fred's parents' house around 7pm and do it all over again.

I actually feel bad at Fred's family's Thanksgiving because I usually don't eat a lot since I'm still stuffed from my family's Thanksgiving. But I still pig out (or is it turkey out?!)

But if the night ends early (and we can push ourselves away from the table), we try and go to see a movie since our 1st date was on Thanksgiving 5 years ago! Who knows, maybe this year, we'll hit Target and Macy's at midnight!  :)

What are your Thanksgiving Traditions?

That's great you're able to go to both sets of parents homes for the holiday.

A movie later on Thanksgiving night sounds perfect! I love that. How cute that you had your first day on Thanksgiving!!

Kristin said...

bahahaha! Turkey Out?! love it. We have multiple Thanksgivings too, which sometimes is super awesome cuz we get more than one meal...but sometimes because of scheduling we miss meals all together, we really need to master our system.
