    • We used to. We’d make a big feast and invite any of Joe’s teachers that were not going home for the holiday and didn’t have anyone here. Last year we went out to dinner for the first time and enjoyed it very much. We‘re doing the same this year. The only problem with that is - no leftovers. Sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas, though, I usually cook a turkey and a few sides and we have a mini Thanksgiving dinner.

    • No.  I am actually thinking of going out for dinner too.  We never go out to dinner and thought it would be nice to go out for a change.

    • I’m having it here.  I usually have my few family members who live close by and my husbands larger group...LOL
      We do the whole shibang
      turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, salad, lasagna or some kind of pasta, corn, pecan pie, cranberry pumpkin cheescake, munchies like chips and dips, and I’m sure I’m leaving out a lot ... it’s a feast... Fortunately I’m not nuts about Thanksgiving dinner so I do not usually over eat on this day...go figure...LOL

    • No, I am travelling with friends to their relatives home.  I don’t think I’ve ever been a “guest” at Thanksgiving dinner before.  It will be a new experience for me.

    • Your plans all sound wonderful, ladies!

      Hub is going in for a hernia repair surgery next Wednesday, so I ordered a small Thanksgiving meal from The Fresh Market, it will include a small turkey breast, all the fixins and pumpkin pie, so I can take care of him and then just heat it up if he is hungry.

      We are invited to my SIL’s house, but only our son may go since his cousins will be there.

    • We always order our Thanksgiving dinner and add the extra dishes entailing very little cooking. Thanksgiving dinner will be intimate with the immediate family present which makes for a relaxing, fun-filled  day. I’m looking forward to  being with my family on this special occasion!

      This year, my older daughter will be the hostess at our home!heart
      She also will provide the meal!heart

      An act of kindness is a gift given

    • Yes, I always do ,and unfortunately its usually stressful for me to be resposible to do it all, especially when working 2 jobs and not getting much sleep at all. I will be glad when its over. I know that sounds bad but I do love my family and all but these things stress me out.
