We are having dinner with friends from church Between my friend who is hosting and my other friend's husband (who is basically a chef) they have everything covered. Not sure what we could even bring, but I think it is going to be a delicious and fun
Thanksgiving. I am very thankful for great friends to spend the day with and great food to eat.

We are going to a friend's house, but I will be making a lot of the goodies, like the turkey, and the gravy and the pumpkin pie, and the green bean casserole.

We're spending Thanksgiving with our military family this year...in Japan. It's so strange! lol

We have to work, but we will be escaping to my mom's house for part of the day to celebrate. We own a pet sitting business, so we always had to work holidays. As long as none of our employees get sick, our load should be light this year.

I am doing all the cooking and hosting. Just my in-laws are coming since my family planned thanksgiving without me. I'm over it! My in-laws are wonderful and fun so I am really looking forward! There will be 9 of us in total.

I'm going to my husbands Aunt's house. There will be at least 16 adults there plus some kids. I'm not really looking forward to it because there is palpable tension between my mother in law and her sister. It's very awkward and uncomfortable. They usually don't even speak so it's quite odd that we are going there. His Aunt's house is immaculate and so I think that must be why it will be there. I'm making the stuffing. I hope it turns out good since I've never made it before!

I probably won't do anything on Thursday. My side of the family has already had a dinner, and my husbands side is coming over on Friday for diner. I will work, and I might even sleep in a little that morning. I work evenings.

Were going home!! We will get there just in time for dinner at my moms house. We're stoked (minus the 12 hour flight/layovers >.<) we haven't gotten to spend thanksgiving/Christmas etc with either of our families in 4 years. Here's hoping it stops snowing and we don't end up with delays.

We are going to my mother in laws place for thanksgiving.(about 20 min away) My sister has to work so she will not be there this year. Ill be making the pies, Berry & pumpkin, Molasses cookies, and snickerdoodle cheesecake bars. The hubby is going to smoke a Bacon Explosion.... I you dont know what it is Google it... It is a melt in your mouth artery clogger we only make 1 time a year... and I get to make the gravy. It should be a lot of fun we always play games and talk and enjoy, no drinking wine this year though (it always gets a little roudy when we are opening the 2nd or 3rd bottle of wine

We are going to my aunt's house about 45 mins away. There will be 17 of us there. We eat so much and watch football. I'm making a cheese ball appetizer and a buffalo chicken dip appetizer. Hopefully, the chicken dip turns out ok.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO A OF YOU! I'm so thankful to be in a DDC with you all.

Hubby, one of my younger brothers and I will be doing some volunteer work in the early part of the day helping to feed the homeless then back home to help with whatever hasn't been cooked yet ( my moms doing the cooking ) and then just enjoying the rest of the evening with family. My youngest daughters birthday is on Sunday so we will be busy with that the rest of the weekend.

You know I read this and I wanted to say thank you. I feel awful for the people that get stuck at work today, but the job you do and the attitude you bring to work can mean so much.

In 2005, my dad came out for Thanksgiving and on Thanksgiving day he realized he had forgotten his blood thinners. I drove him an hour away to go to a VA hospital in order to get these for him. The nurse came out to speak to my father (who is disable, and can't really speak) while I was taking a phone call. I saw her, got off the phone and walked up, as soon as I was close, she spun on me and said in a really disrespectful tone, "What is WRONG with him?" I don't think I have ever been more upset. I pulled this woman down the hall and actually yelled at her. I can't believe she would be so disrespectful to a veteran on Thanksgiving day. Sorry you had to work random lady but that is no reason to treat my sick father so poorly.

So peaches, I am sorry you have to work on Thanksgiving but I think what you do means so much!


Today I am my mom's house. Doing my best to take family in stride today... breath in, breath out. Mommy, I really do love you but please quit trying to talk to me when I am trying to read the news.
