It's Just Around The Corner

Thanksgiving Pictures, Images and Photos

So Halloween is over and I’m already missing it. We took down all the Halloween decorations and put them back in storage yesterday. We still haven’t found out if we won the contest or not though. I’m thinking we didn’t but, that’s okay. I was just stoked to get nominated at all. That was the first time that has ever happened. We live in a big complex and only 5 apartments were included in the contest so it’s all good. At least it is to me anyway. My fiancé was a bit disappointed. He is a more competitive person, than I am, though so I know he is feeling like he could have done better.

Anyway, it’s all over now so I can’t help but start looking forward towards the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. I love it for two reasons. The first is that you get to spend time with family without all the stress that comes along later with Christmas. There aren’t any worries about if you bought the right gift or not or, the more likely worry lately, if you can afford to buy gifts for everyone. The second reason, and this is my favorite, is that it’s the only day out of the year that I feel a complete and total lack of guilt about stuffing myself senseless. In between power naps that It should be especially interesting this year because we have to split the day between his family and mine. Hopefully, one day we can mix it all up but, until then we will just have to make do.

I was wondering how many, other people, out there will be celebrating numerous times on Thanksgiving? I’d love to hear all about it. :o)

For years I did three different places on each holiday. It was tough.

We just do our house now and I'm happy about that. We do all the work, but we are home on the holidays.

Have a great day. :)

Three places? I bet that was tough. I wish I could have it at my place. Maybe someday.

Hope yours is great. :o)

After trying to go do two family Christmases at opposite ends of the state the first year I was married, my husband and I told our families that it was too much traveling in one for us. We couldn't enjoy the holiday because we were so tired from driving! After that, we told them that one year one side of the family gets us on Thanksgiving the other gets us on Christmas Day. The following year we switch.

Dang, that is alot of driving and I can totally see how it could take all the fun out of the holidays. I'm glad you found a way to make it work.

Sarcasm - I'll be packing boxes on Thanksgiving, ick. No turkey for me, probably pizza in a box, lol.

BTW, I love your blogger icon!

Hey thanks. Glad you like it. :o)

Packing...that doesn't sound like fun at all. I moved a couple of years ago on christmas. That was not fun. Hope it goes well for you.
