We hosted Thanksgiving at our house this year. Our long running tradition in my family is to read “‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving,” on Thanksgiving Eve, followed by our annual (edited) feature presentation of “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles”. Then we top off the night with a round of harmonized gobbles. Oh how I love traditions.
I think we have the book just about memorized by now, but even so, we take turns passing it around and reading the story page by page.
Troy was really enthused about the tradition, as one might gather from his concentration on a Forbes magazine. Those raised eyebrows weren’t out of sarcasm at all in response to our giddiness…
Blake figured out how to use my remote camera clicker, so we humored ourselves while the guys rolled their eyes. Oh and I promise that Blake has pants, it’s just so much easier without them while he is perfecting his potty training skills.
It is so much fun (and helpful) to have family gathered for the holidays.
