Five On Friday - Thanksgiving Edition

With Thanksgiving just a week away, I want to dedicate this Five On Friday to the holiday that often times gets mistreated thanks to Saint Nick and his bag of goodies.
 

{one} This is Connor's second Thanksgiving but the first he can really enjoy and celebrate. Last year, he was just a wee little thing. Can you even believe how big our little guy is now compared to last year? #timeslowdown


{two} I was a bit worried that either a) I was going to have to attempt to make a Thanksgiving dinner for our family or 3 or b) James was going to insist we go to dinner on Thanksgiving. While I may have been able to pull something together and going to dinner wouldn't have been all that bad, I can't imagine not sharing the holiday with others. Thankfully, my girl Pitt step in and invited us. All I have to concern myself with is bringing something sweet and be there at 3. Done and done!

{three} On Thanksgiving, we will be completing this questionnaire and taking this quiz. Of course, we will be enjoying lots of yummy food and watching more pigskin then James wants. We will also be watching A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.

{four} This will be my first Thanksgiving away from my parents and brothers. I'm not okay with this but as a grown-up, have learned that there are times when you have to sacrifice. I sent lots of Thanksgiving cards out and am counting the days until we are in Ohio for Christmas.

{five} 100% truth.

  5. #5 is awesome!

    I typically spend Thanksgiving with Kristian's family and last year my mom joined us but it is weird not spending it with my mom and brother.

  6. Yeah, I spent Thanksgiving away from my parents for the last four years. This year they are finally coming to us, so it'll be a special one. Hope you still have a great holiday!

  7. ha! I love that card! I understand what you mean about adult sacrifices. We get to spend Thanksgiving with my family but not Christmas. At least this year John's mom is coming to visit so we will have a little family with us in CO.

  8. I'm so glad to have you at our table this Thanksgiving. Your family is one of my "most thankful for" this year. :)

  9. While I'm as excited for Christmas as the next person I HATE that Thanksgiving often gets brushed aside. An entire day to be a glutenous fool, and everyone else is too? All the while giving thanks for so many blessings?! How can people just breeze right past this is beyond me.
