i am glad to be able to participate in this weeks friend makin' monday. please visit this site to join in.
1. Turkey or Ham?
I have to have both, or it just isn't a holiday dinner. Both of my grandparents, my parents and most recent (well since 2001), my in-laws, have always had turkey and ham. yummy.
2. Favorite side dish.
Probably mashed potatoes with slaw on top. Greenbeans are always a must have as well. O, deviled eggs :)
3. Favorite dessert.
Pumpkin pie. *im getting so hungry.
4. Black Friday: Are you going or not?
I have in years past and I may this year. The husband is off so we may.
5. If so, what's on the top of your list?
Check out my recent blog to see my Christmas list; here and here.
6. Going out of town or staying close to home?
My family lives about an hour away. My in-laws live ten minutes away. We always swap, so whoever gets us longer for Thanksgiving will get us shorter for Christmas, and vise-versa.
7. Hosting or helping?
I always help and I love it. I actually blogged about this today. Check it out here.
8. Name one family tradition at Thanksgiving.
We always go to our grandparents. It just isn't a holiday without getting everyone together and going to our grandparent's house and then going back to our parents afterwards.
9. What do you do after dinner?
nap, football, play with the kids and enjoy the company of my family.
10. What are you most thankful for this year?
my health. my family. and although not the happiest with my schedule or current position, my job. were blessed in so many ways, even with non-physical things. our thanks we owe all to God.
