Thanksgiving Feast

I love our Thanksgiving traditions:

Food - Our Thanksgiving feast is very traditional (except we don't do cranberry sauce).









Family - As many as we can get into one house. Lots of noise, laughter and confussion.

Lum and Abner - No Thanksgiving is complete without listening to our favorite Thanksgiving story, Chester the Turkey. Lum and Abner is an old radio show and this is my favorite! One year my girls memorized it and performed it as a skit...too funny!

Singing - We have several songs fit for the occassion. "Over the River and Through the Woods", "5 Fat Turkeys Are We", and "There's a Big Fat Turkey Out On Grandpas Farm". I've included a couple of Youtube versions of "Over the River..."

  5. Love "confussion". You know I thought the funny version of Over the river and through the woods WAS traditional. I never heard it like the second video. They made it pretty.

  6. Sounds like you have a wonderful holiday with lots of traditions. I always go to my moms house and then we go shopping at midnight. It's a lot of fun, food, and no sleep but we love it!

  7. Special occasions such as Thanksgiving are probably the only time when confusion becomes fun. Nothing beats getting together with the whole family, right? Throw in some delicious food, and you're all set.

  14. So many things to be thankful for, it's easy to loose track. But we're so thankful for everything the Lord provides for us everyday. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  16. No Cranberrry Sauce?? LOL, I usually have cranberry sauce every year, but this year I didn't get it made and I don't do canned.

    Sounds like you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  17. Funny. I'm not really into cranberries either. We always have a nice gathering at my brother-in-law's, and I'm a bit spoiled there, having to travel, and miss all of the preparation part. I still miss my mom's cooking every year though;)
