Over The Years

Homemade Turkey Thanksgiving Dinner

Your crew has likely developed some old family traditions associated with Turkey Day. From the food you serve for Thanksgiving dinner, like Grandma's famous gravy recipe, to what you do before and after you eat. My favorite part is watching the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade. Now my Husband will be cooking, but eyeing all the Football games. I miss the days when I lived closer to family so we could play board games.

Even More Things

You could kick off the day with a turkey trot. My Mother In Law has the best Bloody Mary Bar. How about a movie marathon. All these ideas for Thanksgiving traditions are sure to make you count your blessings and feel more grateful than ever.

In all the fun and frenzy, it can be easy to forget the true meaning of Thanksgiving: gratitude. Dole out some black sharpies and, before digging in to the meal invite each guest to write what they are thankful for on a butcher paper cloth laid over the table. Years later you can look back on the memories. I love to do toasts as well, especially since I don't get the chance to spend many Thanksgivings back home. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
