Show and Tell Monday : Thanksgiving Traditions!

1.Tell us about your family traditions for Thanksgiving.

We really don't have traditions that don't involve food, ha! Typically we just gather at some one's house, make wonderful yummy food for our first early meal, and we always dig into leftovers later in the night.

2. Tell us about your favorite foods

Thanksgiving is where I get to eat all of my fav foods! My grandma's stuffing, delicious mashed potatoes, green bean casserole with the crispy onions on top, and for dessert we skip the pumpkin pie and make pecan cream pie...holy deliciousness!

3. Show us a picture that reminds you of this holiday

OK, I'm showing you three...

I never eat the stuff, but my momma makes oyster stuffing every Thanksgiving.

Pots of boiling water for boiling potatoes.

Of course, one of the pups acting as if we never feed them getting for food!

4. Tell us, do you wait to decorate for Christmas before or after Thanksgiving?

Usually the day after Thanksgiving or even that night is when we decorate for Christmas. It used to be before I knew anything about Black Friday sales that we'd go get our tree and decorate it that day. Now more often then not that day is spent scoring some good deals of Christmas gifts, and then decorating the weekend after Thanksgiving. This year we opted to decorate a little early since we'll be on a cruise the whole week of Christmas. We have stockings hung and pumpkins switched out for little trees, pine cones, and Christmas smelling goodies, but still no tree...which we may just skip this year.

5. Tell us what you are thankful for this year

This year I have SO much to be thankful for. My wonderful husband who is an amazing support, our amazing little boy we've been blessed with this year, our supportive family, and our health. The list goes on and on....

With Love,
