Ok, next one..

This one is asking me to list these 10 things, here we go! :)

1. Turkey or Ham?
We always have turkey.  Most of my family is not into ham.  And, I almost always make it. Thanksgiving is "my" holiday :)

2. Favorite side dish:
Mom's mashed potatoes

3. Favorite dessert:
No matter how many desserts we make, the one I always look forward to most is the Chocolate Cream Pie

4. Black Friday: Are you going or not?
We haven't been in years.  Since before my son was born, which was almost 8 years ago!  But this year we have decided to go.  I won't lie, I'm only going because it means I get coffee and breakfast. :)

5. If so, what's on the top of your list?
Whatever Chris wants for Christmas and then we are hoping to find some good deals for birthdays that are quickly following Christmas. 

6. Going out of town or staying close to home?
Thanksgiving is my "non traveling" holiday.  So, we will be home..but not my home.  We will be at my parents.  It's easier for us to have it there, they have more Gramma won't make the drive out to Kuna. 

7. Hosting or helping?
Well, it's kinda tricky.  I sort of host but I sort of help.  It used to be that I did 99% of it but just hosted it at Mom n Dad's house.  With the change in the money situation over the years it has had to become more and more of a co-op situation.  Which is fine, too!  It's actually really fun that way.

8. Name one family tradition at Thanksgiving:
Umm eating till we almost vomit?

9. What do you do after dinner?
Wonder if the boys will clean up.  Realize they wont, and then we start cleaning up.

10. What are you most thankful for this year?
The opportunity to be able to really enjoy it and my family without having to worry about fitting it in with a work schedule.


  1. I love my moms mashed potatoes too =D Good Luck with "your" holiday! =D

    Happy FMM!

  2. You, too! Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you get to eat lots of your Mom's mashed potatoes on Turkey Day!
