Every family has certain "traditions" at Thanksgiving.
What's on your menu?
Do you eat the traditional meal or have something different?
Who's the main cook or do you share the cooking?
Football, napping, games?
That is so wonderful, what a great tradition to start. Joining family and cultures is the best.My middle son works for CAT in Peoria. Long ago there was a new employee from India who had not experienced a Thanksgiving here in the US. He invited my son and his family over for an Indian meal on Thanksgiving day. Since that time, on Thanksgiving, that tradition continues and the two families meet for that Indian meal. My son follows up the following Thursday with a traditional meal of turkey and all the fixin's to share.
Any chance you and your sis could surprise her and go down there for the holiday?Since my parents moved to Florida, i have spent my turkey day at my sister's house. We will watch football and she serves the typical trimmings. Love the green bean casserole. When my parents were up here, we would have dinner at their house. This holiday season we'll feel the absence of my father for sure. It would be nice if my mom could be up here with us. She may spend some time with neighbors down there, though just doesn't feel right to me.
