This is what Samuel thinks of Thanksgiving at Nana's.
As Thanksgiving tradition demands, my mom cooks enough for a small nation's army. There are leftovers to last about a week for all of us. And dessert?? I am already stuffed thinking about it.
I think Thanksgiving is my all time favorite holiday, because it revolves around our thankfulness to our Saviour for all the good HE has done for us. And HE has done alot of good for us! And it unites family and friends without the hubbub of gifts. Not that gifts are bad, but it just plain old thankful. We usually have about 22 people around the table, and it is great!
Before my sister & I got married, we used to have paella, or lobster, maybe a ham or some other type of meal for Thankgiving. The turkey had little to no appeal for us.
But then we married americans. Who were SCANDALIZED the first time they sat around the Thanksgiving table. ( Both my sister & I married the same year. My other "sister" married 2 years later, but married a hispanic.) So, we have been americanized and now we eat turkey EVERY year. And I guess thats okay. I mean it IS an american holiday ........lol.
So, as my mom and I were planning the meal yesterday, I got so full, I couldn't even eat lunch. Truly.
One more week!!
