We're laying low I think. My dd's are going to be away with thier dad's family so H and I will probably just hang around home. We usually go to my brother's, but with the riff between my sister and me, I'd rather pass this year - no sense in making everyone uncomfortable on Thanksgiving Day, right?

I bought a turkey and all the fixins, so it should be nice, plus we'll have leftovers. I have a friend who is staying home this year also, so we might get together for dessert late in the day.

My H said we should get up early and hit the NYC Macy's parade, and then visit his uncle who's wife just passed away....but I don't know if that will happen. We went to the parade last year (with a crowd) and it was fun. I guess we'll see, I think it's supposed to possibly snow that day as well, so...

No matter what we do, I know it will be a nice day. I hope everyone here has a wonderful Thanksgiving day and dinner!

Sounds like you're going to have a great day. I think next year I might try that...

This year I'm hosting Thanksgiving at my apartment. DH's family is coming (aunts, cousins) and my mom and bro are coming. I'm cooking the dressing for the first time under the direct supervision and instruction of my fabulous mom, banana pudding, pecan pie, and roasted veggies. DH is frying the turkey. Mom is making sweet potato pie and deviled eggs. One of DH's aunts is making green beans and collard greens. The other is making the ham and apple pie. DH's cousin

We are going to dh's uncle's cabin for Thanksgiving and then spending the rest of the weekend with dh's parents and brothers. It'll be the first time most of dh's aunts and uncles and cousins will have met Grace!
