Happy Gobble Day

One down, two to go. Our Thanksgiving always tends to be a palooza of sorts. We have so much family and only so many nights that we literally have to start a couple of days before Thanksgiving day, and end up finishing on the Saturday after, at my Mother in Laws. It makes me think that it might be time to start a new tradition, everyone comes here. Dad's side, Mom's side, In law's, you name it, they all come to us..... just kidding!

It does make me think though, it seems each year that the crowd shrinks a little more than the year before. Everyone is growing up and getting married, having babies and starting their own family traditions, at what point, if ever, will this happen for us? I enjoy seeing all of our family, it's the only time of year that we get to see some of the distant cousins that have moved away. I also like spending time with "My Family" - Munchkin and Hubby.

For some reason it always gets so hectic that we sit down when it's all finished and wonder where the Holiday(s) went.... I guess when you are fortunate enough to have Grandparents, Great Grandparents for Munchkin, Parents, Brothers, Sisters, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins around to share this with, you leave things alone. There is plenty of time to start traditions of our own, right now I will enjoy the ones that were created long before I was born, and try my best to carry them and pass them on to our children.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!! Love to you all!
