Thanksgiving MeMe

Shelli is posting Thanksgiving MeMe's on her blog so I thought I'd play along.

1. How will you be spending your Thanksgiving this year?
We are going to my Uncle's house.

2. Will you be cooking or are you just an eater?
I'm bringing broccoli casserole and cookies.  We have a big family so it's a light load.

3. Do you watch the parade every year or football!!
The men watch football.  Ugh.  The women talk and get shushed a lot.  Sometimes we watch a movie.

4. Whats your favorite float?
Snoopy is my favorite!

5. Dark meat or white meat? Dark

6. What is your favorite dish besides the turkey?
A family tradition of coconut cake topped with fresh coconut.

7. Homemade cranberry sauce or cranberry sauce from the can? Neither...the whip cream cranberry salad full of grapes and nuts!

8. Do you decorate for Christmas on Thanksgiving day?
No, we do it on December 1st.  I refuse to decorate before December.

9. What are some special family traditions?
We try to tell each other what we're thankful for.  Not formally (well, sometimes it is) but more an informal thing.

10. Pumpkin pie or pecan?

11. What is your favorite thing to do with the leftovers?
Turkey pot pie!

12. How long will you spend eating your thanksgiving meal?
We hang around the tables for an hour (not the kids-they exit when they're finished).

13. Are you worried about putting on weight this Thanksgiving?

14. What do you normally eat at Thanksgiving?
Turkey, sage dressing, garden-fresh green beans, potato casserole, black olives, sweet potatoes with marshmellow topping, rolls, pie and lots of desserts!

15. What will you be thankful for this Thanksgiving? 
My family, my home, my friends (including you), great stories, coffee and pens

16. What is your best Thanksgiving memory?
About three years ago when my Uncle had a hayride, pony rides, a four-wheeler...we did more than just sit around that year.  It was a blast!

17. Will you be waking up early to hit the sales?
Yes, it's kind of a tradition.  I don't find as much for the kids as I used to since they're older but it's still fun.

18. Are you planning on going shopping the day after Thanksgiving?
Yes, Black Friday is fun!  Well, when you have sisters and friends to go with.

Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy your time off.


  1. Ahhh I just happened on this one and it was so sweet! I loved reading your answers. :)
