Friend Makin' Monday ~ Thanksgiving

Welcome Back to another Friend Makin' Monday!!!

This week, Amber asks us about Thanksgiving.

1. Turkey or Ham? Turkey! I am not a big fan of Ham.

2. Favorite side dish. Probably dressing, maybe mashed potatoes. Who can pick just one?

3. Favorite dessert. Mmmmm, Apple Pie.

4. Black Friday: Are you going or not? Not. I still haven't left Kameryn, and I don't think either of us would survive being away from each other for any length of time. And forget trying to take her with me, I don't think much would get done. Pre-children, I used to go. And it was fun. But I never took it too seriously.

5. If so, what's on the top of your list? If I were going, the stores I'd most likely hit would be Target, Wal-mart, and Fred Meyer. Honestly, I have most of my shopping done. Jeremy wants some hunting equipment {which has to be ordered}, the girls are mostly asking for American Girl {also has to be ordered}, and I want a new camera {but that's never going to happen ~ I have expensive taste ;)}. We may be looking for a new laptop, however . . .

6. Going out of town or staying close to home? We are going to my mom and dad's this year, but we'll be close to home. They live right across the driveway ;)

7. Hosting or helping? Helping this year, hosting next year. Guess I'd better take some notes!

8. Name one family tradition at Thanksgiving. We usually spend Thanksgiving with Jeremy's family, and for the last several years we've left that evening to spend the weekend at my Nana-in-laws gift shop. We get there Thursday night and spend the evening decorating for Christmas. The girls love it! We'll miss that tradition this year as we are spending Thanksgiving with my family for the first time in 5 years.

9. What do you do after dinner? Visit and eat dessert! This year my family is starting a new tradition. We've got a big Bingo game planned following dinner. We went shopping for prizes a couple of weeks ago, and are ready!

10. What are you most thankful for this year? Wow. I have so much to be thankful for. And it's a shame that it sometimes takes a holiday to remind us of just how many blessings we have. I am so thankful that God is present in my life. He has blessed me with the most wonderful family EVER. A hard-working husband who loves us, and provides us with all we could ever need {or want}. And three precious, precious, little girls. I cannot imagine my life without them. We are also blessed to live right across the driveway from my parents, and a couple miles down the road from Jeremy's parents. So much family close by!

What are *YOU* thankful for this year?

Stop on by Amber's for more Friend Makin' Monday fun!

Great list. It is hard to choose just one side. You may need to take a notebook with you to take notes for next year! I'll be sleepin in on Black Friday.

We do have so much to be thankful for. My parents are just around the corner from me. a 2 minute walk. I love them being so close definitely a blessing. How nice that your inlaws are so close too. Mine are 12 hours away. ugh. So no honey baked ham for you? That is pretty much the only kind I will eat. LOL But I do go for the turkey most of the time. YUM
Happy Monday!

What a great idea for Bingo! I think we may have to try that. It's a great game to incorporate most ages in the family. It makes the holiday more interesting.
I'm thankful for a healthy, growing baby!!
