Who Splits The Wishbone?

I just rolled out of bed and my hair looks CRAZY. EEK. My Thanksgiving to-do list is long and today we delve into it, so let the fun begin! I figured while I had a few minutes to myself (between waking up and fixing this bird's nest on my head) I would write something.


So ... let's see ... Thanksgiving-ish post ... ah!

What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?

Does Grandma always roast the turkey? Does your uncle always fall asleep on the couch during the football game? Is there one special dish that MUST make it to the table or blood will be shed?

This is our year to spend Thanksgiving with my in-laws and my favorite tradition at their house is Thanksgiving Bunco. I have to admit, I hadn't ever heard of Bunco until I started dating my husband (nine years ago, WOW) and somehow I've managed to move up the ranks to becoming the Bunco Name Card Maker this year. Thanksgivings are always big at their house (there are twenty this year and that's with a significant chunk of the family being out of town) and it's fun to see everyone, from the youngest to the eldest, get into the game, hoping for the glory and fame that accompanies every "BUNCO!" Way fun.

My favorite dish is sweet potato casserole and dressing/stuffing. And mashed potatoes. And fried turkey (my husband fries a mean turkey!). All mixed together. Carb-a-licious comfort food at its finest.

Those are my favorite traditions. How about you?

Time to go tame this hair and hit the grocery store.

Have a lovely day!


  1. I'm looking forward to doing a new tradition next year: Thankful Tree! Totally stealing it. ;)

  2. Watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in my pajamas is a must for me, as is cranberry sauce!
