Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is Thanksgiving. For my non-American readers, Thanksgiving is a day when we're supposed to give thanks for all of our blessings. Technically, we're supposed to give thanks for the bountiful harvest of the previous summer season, but since it's 2014 and many of us get our "crops" from here...




...mostly we just do this.



And this.



And this.



If we have a houseful of bored kids, we do this.



And then we go to bed early, so we can get up and do this.



What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

  1. The bird went in the oven at 6 a.m. I'm hanging out at home and watching parades. Easy day.

  2. I wish we had Black Fridays here! Discounts pretty much do not exist here ,at least not in the way that goods are really cheap then.

  4. HAPPY THANKSGIVING Stephanie, I hope you're having a great day with your family... I personally hate crows so I shop as little as I can. I can't even understand why people need so much stuff anyway. Maybe I'd go shopping for a pair of stretchy pants so I could eat more food. lol.
    Enjoy.
    Hugs,
    JB

  5. This was so cute! And so true how people spend the day, LOL :) I hope you have a great Thanksgiving with you and your family.

    I'm working today (if my regular schedule includes working a holiday, I work it unless I ask for it off and not everyone can have every holiday off, I'm off Christmas, but lots of times we run out of work so I'll probably only work half day if that). This evening we are going to hubby's brother's and sister in law's for dinner :)

  7. I'm happy to say that I'm not doing most of that. Just hubby and I this year and our meal is very easy today. Eat mid afternoon and then read and just enjoy each others company. We don't do black Friday. Ever.

    Have a fabulous Thanksgiving. ☺

  9. I'm doing the face stuffing, football watching and snoozing ones. :) Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you get to pack several of those images into your day as well.

  10. Thanksgiving is probably the laziest holiday tradition. Obviously a holiday around eating food was a perfect fit for us Americans.

  11. Happy Thanksgiving! We had ours in October but celebrating is about the same except for Black Friday which, personally, I think is nuts. I would not want to be part of that throng-too scary and , for me, not worth it. I feel bad for all the people who have to work it and even today!

  12. Happy Thanksgiving. It looks like an early run at our Christmas. Right down to the sales the next day...

  14. At the moment I'm online reading blogs. Soon I must brave the roads and head to my brother's house. Sigh.

  15. Hope you are enjoying your day! That turkey brownie on Twitter was huge!

  16. Happy Thanksgiving! We celebrate ours in October, but I don't think it's the same huge deal that it is in the States. We do eat too much and crash, though. That part we've mastered.

  17. Happy Thanksgiving. I had a mostly quiet one, which is what I wanted. I'll be doing most of my shopping online tomorrow to avoid the crowds.

  18. I think you about covered it for what goes on today. I'm not a Black Friday shopper, so I'll just be staying home. Happy Thanksgiving.

  19. Enjoy your thanksgiving, Stephanie! Black Friday shopping looks lethal.

  20. If I were European or Asian, you explanation would have hit all the key features of Thanksgiving nicely.

    Hope you had a nice day and be careful out there, Stephanie!

  23. Since I can't go home and don't have family locally I volunteered at our USO center since it's open 24/7/365 and so many of the volunteers were out of town or busy. It was a great time :)

  24. Going to the movies sounds like a good plan. LOL. Ron stuffing his face, and the guy passed out on the couch - pretty much accurate.

  25. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving eating lots of yummy food with family! There was no Black Friday shopping here!
