Thanksgiving dinner is so great… we always do it TWICE. On Thanksgiving, we celebrate with our family which is always a treat. It’s always so nice to have everyone under one roof.

The little cousins get to play together. Caleb and Emma were kissing all night long. Totally SWEET. Of course there is a family debate or two about something political… but isn’t that always the way. It’s just nice to relax and overeat and laugh with the people you grew up with. The holidays are perfect for that.

But no leftovers when you go to your cousin’s house!! So, on Friday, I always make a SECOND Thanksgiving just for my family to devour. And BOY is it a TREAT. I ended up cooking so much food that an entire family of 5 came over unexpectedly and I had enough food to FEED THEM. Can you imagine?! LOL Isn’t that what the holiday is all about anyway – sharing?
