Hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow! Will you be cooking or travelling? We always have Thanksgiving at our house. I do the main stuff (turkey, dressing, potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie) and my sister brings a few sides, rolls, and a plate full of baked goods. we'll have 9 at the table this year, the 4 of us and my sis, bil, and their adult son. Jason's gf will be here as well as my nephew's gf.

We're having our TG dinner tonight (Wednesday) at home, just dh and I. Most of the usual participants can't come this year so we decided to take the year off from hosting it. I've cooked a scaled down version and didn't bother with dressing or gravy. We decided to do something completely different on TG Day, we'll go hiking in our local mountains and take turkey & cranberry sandwiches for our lunch. We can just reheat leftovers for dinner. 

I hope that everybody has a wonderful day with your family and friends, or doing whatever you prefer to do.

The usual here - all local 21 of us in dh's immediate family will go to MIL's (there are 3 more out of town who won't be here but will be in a month).  I'm tasked with an appetizer and a dessert.  Sounds like we might have a little rain but it's still moderate temperature-wise, but will drop after that.  Definitely NOT doing any BF things unless it's online!

Have a great Thanksgiving, all!

I am going to my mother's--there will just be 5 of us--my aunt lives w/ my mother & then me & the 2 kids.  I'm happy that my DD came home for a week--she got in late Monday night, then spent tues. w/ her father and of course then she has things to do w/ her college friends over the weekend but hopefully I'll get to see her another day before she goes back.  I am trying to avoid going shopping tomorrow but I'll probably get sucked in by some sales & end up buying things for myself!
