Thanksgiving Traditions

Thanksgiving in our very large family comes with a number of traditions. First, the enormous pot luck meal at our house. Everything turned out beautifully, if I say so myself. Tradition #2 is that on Thanksgiving evening, anyone who is interested and still standing goes out to see a late movie. This year I went because I really wanted to see the new Harry Potter. I think they are getting scarier and I wouldn't take young children, but I had fun. Tradition #3 is a Shopping Day for the girls in the family. This is serious business, this shopping, and not for the faint of heart. We start early and go until there are no more stores left open. Comfortable shoes are a must. For me, Tradition #4 is taking down all the fall decor and....putting up Christmas. I am in the middle of this, and probably will be working at it for days. I did some yesterday and will work on it later this afternoon. It's all been great good fun, and I may have to go back to work to get some rest.

I had to LOL at that one, Jen!

I think that the best part of traditions is not so much the tradition itself...but also the expectations and the looking forward to it.

Thanks for sharing!

I stopped in at Lowe's yesterday to price a water softener system and stood around in the plumbing section a little while. Egads! the fun tubs & sinks and yikes, the prices!

Any money left from your Friday shopping for the bathroom redo??
