If you were wondering how Gill spent her Thanksgiving, wonder no more. Sounds like a nice time.
The Table is set, all the relatives are there, and dad pours the wine. This is tradition for most folks on any major holiday. Today I am going to walk you through my Thanksgiving, so try to get comfortable.
A Smart Phone For My Uncle
In future blogs I will further introduce you to my uncle Greg. Every family has someone like this. Last Saturday I, along with my sister, uncle, and one of my dad’s cousins went to the Rogers phone store. This was mostly my sister and my dad’s cousin’s idea. Bringing uncle Greg in to the tech age, by giving him the ability to text and send e-mails from a phone around the size of my hand. Once that was done, my sister showed him how to activate Blue Tooth in his truck.
What’s For Dinner?
Thanksgiving at my folks mainly consists of crackers and cheese in the afternoon, cards, and loads of laughter. Dinner is most often chicken, but this year was slightly different. We had turkey, stuffing, a time honored sweet potato casserole with brown sugar and pecans, cranberries, root vegetables, beets, carrots, potatoes, etc, and of course pumpkin pie.
I would often pass on it until last year, but now that I have tried it, I find I am all about pumpkin pie. I also quite enjoy the traditions, gathering around a table made by one of my great-grandfathers, the love it takes to prepare a feast, and of course my family.
