Thanksgiving Traditions

I thought it would be fun to make a list of some of the things that we do during the Thanksgiving holiday. Some of them are traditions on purpose, others somehow became that way.

  • Thanksgiving feasts and programs at preschool and elementary schools. Link to Alex's kindergarten program:
  • Grant participates in a "Turkey Bowl" with his brothers (and usually re-injures his knee) Thanksgiving morning.
  • Jen makes a whole lot of something yummy for dinner.
  • Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma and Grandpa Willis's home.
  • Many, many pies.
  • Full bellies, warmth, and friendship.
  • Football games (now in HD).
  • Early morning "Black Friday" shopping trip for the ladies, ending with a "Happy Birthday" lunch for sis.-in-law Andra.
  • Turkey sandwiches for dinner Friday night.
  • Saturday morning "Turkey Burnoff" 5 miler for Jen and and sisters-in-law (Crystal, Andra and Jessica). For results see:
  • Having fun just being together.
  • Sad realization on Sunday night that it is all over and we must get back to the routine Monday morning.
