I love Thanksgiving as it is just the 5 of us at home... we don't even answer the phones unless it's Grams in Florida!!!!

I will cook our meal and we will eat about 1ish. I make enough to feed a small army.
We will watch the parade and movies.

DH and the kids will drag the 20+ Christmas totes down so we can start decorating the house... Our home loses about 1/3rd of it's size during the holidays!!! The kids laugh because it becomes quite cozy and after the holidays are house increases in size! LOL

I don't do BF. So, Friday will be my scrapbooking day.

We are headed to my family's gathering this Sunday. Actually, looking forward to it because my parents are going to be talking to my kidlets about staying with them one whole day/night at Disney.. DH and I will have a mini-moon for 24 hours!

FIL will come over the Saturday after Thanksgiving to spend with us and have a meal. I believe DsSs will be over... nothing has been confirmed because eldest in college is stressed and not speaking to anyone right now.

Saturday - no plans yet

Sunday - send DH hunting so scrapping day for me

Monday back to work ;(

We'll be hanging out at home as far as I know. Thursday we eat with the in-laws around 1 and we'll decorate the house for Christmas. So that leaves the rest of the weekend for me to crop with Rachel

Thursday, it'll be just the three of us and together we'll cook dinner which we'll eat around 1-ish. Then, we'll get all the Christmas decorations down from the attic. Normally we'd also play games and watch movies and start decorating, but I'm working at Michaels that day and have to be there at 3:30.

Friday, I'll start decorating the house (I don't go Black Friday shopping). The tree goes up first and that takes a few hours to do since I stop and reminisce about the ornaments while unpacking them! I work that afternoon/night.

I'm off this weekend, so on Saturday I'll finish decorating the house and then DH and I will do something together.

On Sunday, we'll head down to DH's Mom and sister's house to spend some time with them.

Dinner with the inlaws, not sure how many of them will be there but at least I am not cooking!

Saturday is Julia's 14th birthday!!! We are headed to the movies to see the Muppets and then back here for pizza and cake.

It will be quieter here on Thanksgiving, just 5 of us. It's our first Thanksgiving without mom, and we usually have 25 people at her house - but, seems everyone is heading in different directions. The weekend will be livelier - love that!! I do not do BF shopping ( except at Michael's), so i hope to finish my second Special Olympics scarf!! Will also get started with Christmas decorations.
I am actually having a honey ham for dinner - first time trying this. Love making scalloped potatoes, butternut squash - my dd makes awesome French meat pies!!

We will be having a quiet Thanksgiving this year.

Thursday- Right now I believe we will have a meal here just the 3 of us - but we may be joining parishoners for a meal at the fellowship hall or be at someone's place. Maybe shopping at Michaels

Friday- Black Friday shopping- I love it- although with DH working it will be my first time going alone.

Saturday- get stuff ready for church, service

Sunday- church and get the house ready for mom's visit the following weekend- maybe work on putting up the tree and some decorating

Thanksgiving is here this year, so I will be a busy bee. I hope to get a lot of things out of the way on Wednesday. (Too bad I cannot use some Harry Potter magic to increase the size of my fridge!) Thursday I will go to M's, then come home for dinner and plan the rest of my shopping. Friday will be spent shopping, while DH sets up the tree and all of that. The rest of the weekend we plan on relaxing and visiting relatives.
