I Love Thanksgiving.
It is one of those rare holidays that makes complete and perfect sense to me, a deep breath, a pause in which to appreciate a little.

We always do Thanksgiving here, at home. With family coming by to share this special time. We have a few traditions too: 1) I always cook. Too, too much food. And usually, there is some strange adventurous dish that takes up a lot of time and doesn't quite work. Last year it was Boston Brown Bread boiled in cans. Let me tell you, this dish was only memorable its humor. 2) We use the quiet time before the meal to draw or write "Thankful pictures". We share these before we get down to turkey. 3)Usually, the kids involve everyone in some sort of game. It was "Snap" this year. Last year "Uno Attack".
Mostly, we just enjoy each others' company, take that deep, deep breath, and remember that whatever the challenges (and there are always, always challenges) we have so very much to be thankful for.
