How Do You Celebrate?

This Thursday is Turkey Day. Are you a traditionalist or do you celebrate in a non-traditional way?

This year our family is taking the more traditional route. Both our children and grandson are coming to our house for breakfast and snacks to watch the parade.

In the afternoon, we're going to my niece's house for our version of a Norman Rockwell dinner. We set out the turkey, sliced by my nephew, potatoes, dressing, gravy, green bean casserole, corn, cranberry sauce, and rolls, all arranged buffet-style.

Each of us will say our special Thank You for the Blessings of another year with our family and friends. We will take a plate of our favorite dessert and watch our football team win or lose. No matter the weather, it will be a beautiful day. We have so much to be thankful for.

Wishing you all a blessed day and 2019.

Happily and gratefully yours,


  1. Carra, that sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! Our children will be here and Hero insists on preparing a traditional dinner. I'll be wearing my pants with elastic waist.☺

    1. I have my elastic waistbands ready. But since the kids came in a couple of weeks ago for Thanksgiving celebration, we will be eating at the local Cracker Barrel.

  2. We've got a small crowd this year. *g* I have this theory that calories at Thanksgiving don't count. If only reality reflected my theory. Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Maybe in another life, Joan. Lol. Wish it was in this one.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving, Cara. Substitute the green beans with sweet potato casserole, and I'll be right there. Lol. Loved this post loaded with family traditions.
