1.  Its a little more than a week til Thanksgiving, do you have family or traveling plans?  Have you started any preparations for it yet?

2.  What, if any, special traditions do you have for Thanksgiving?

1.  We're going to myparents' home for the meal.  I'm in charge of regular dressing,  vegetarian dressing, sweet potatoes done wsome way, and DH's favorite jello sald.  I don't eat jello so this is the one timre a year he gets it.  I found a great recipe for quinoa and red rice dressing with kale and pinenuts.  it starts with a mix from Williams Sonoma, and sounds really good.  I 'll also make pie, rolls, and mashed potaotes at home for leftovers, since there are never these left over to send home.

2. We usually do some form of a thankful tree. This year each day we're writing down what we are thankful for on slips of paper and dropping them in a jar.  We'll take turns reading them on Thanksgiving morning.

We go to my sister's for Thanksgiving so I don't really have prep to do. I bring the desserts, so I make those the night before and morning after.

NO special traditions other than watching the parade that morning.  If we mean food traditions, there must be corn pudding with dinner and death by chocolate for dessert or there will be unhappy people
