Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving.  It happens to be my favorite holiday!  I love Thanksgiving for many reason: it doesn't have the commercialism that many other holidays have, it has a simplicity about it and, of course the food!  Each year, family and friends gather at my parents home to celebrate this holiday.  In order to keep us all in the same room, we have started to have our meal in the garage (a little abnormal, I know).  We had 15 folks at our celebration this year.  The garage is a perfect setting; we are able to stay in one room and spend time with one another.  I will say this: the garage doesn't look like it usually does, it's cleaned and decorated for Thanksgiving!  Being that Thanksgiving is not as hectic (for me anyway) as most of the other holidays, it does give time for reflection for all that I do have to be thankful for.

After all the guests left, and a quick nap, my mother, sister and I went for our annual Black Friday midnight madness.  It might be a little crazy, but it's fun and we love the good deals!! :)
