There are so many things I look forward too at Thanksgiving...The parades on TV, the food as there are only certain foods that I made around the holidays, family that comes over. My aunt and her husband have joined us for the past 3 years and looks like they will joining us again this year.

Growing up it was always just me and my parents for Thanksgiving so I really enjoy having extended family over. Once Thansgiving dinner/dessert is over the offical Christmas Season starts for us.

I don't know why I refer to it as "hosting", LOL. Anyway, this year, I will be able to do what your mom did last year. Dinner for JUST US!! And I am so looking forward to it. Sometimes and intimate quiet dinner at home is very enjoyable. I can't wait.

Im excited for the WHOLE week of Thanksgiving! I have off of work on Wednesdays and we are always off work on Thanksgiving and the day after. So I will be off Wednesday - Sunday and go back into work on Monday. My oldest son will be almost 4 years old and I hope he enjoys the Macy's parade this year even more then he did last year. I love watching that! Of course the food too! We eat at my In laws almost like a late lunch around 1 or 1:30 then we go over my parents for round 2 around 4ish. Its just a day of indulging in yummy food!
