Thanksgiving is always my favorite time of year. I love the food yes, but more than that I love the comfort and family get togethers that happen.
For the past four year we have made a Thankful Tree. Each year it is so difficult to take it down so much so that most years it is up until the next time for the new years tree! I love the thoughtful things my children are thankful for. Last year we did mix it up a little and write a journal entry each day for our blessings but this year we are back to just a simple word of thanks on a leaf.
Thanksgiving day we will make our way over to my grandmothers where I know I will get to de-bone the turkey while we sit and laugh at silly stories and try to ask her what else I can do so she will sit down, which will not happen. We will enjoy our time there for a few hours and then venture home for me to prepare my Thanksgiving supper that night for our families. Kevin's parents and sister come and my parents and brother and nieces come. The kids always play downstairs and I try to get everything finished. The T.V is normally on football and some hollaring is happening.
I love tradition.
