Giving Thanks With the Family.

It's that time of year again. Last year, I shared the U family Traditions. As always, traditions can changed. Since my darling grandpa still isn't feeling 100%, this year we are bring Thanksgiving to him! The "A" side of the family will be rolling into town and setting up Thanksgiving at the g-rents house. (With all the trimmings and a Birthday Cake for Brock). Anytime we can all get together makes me thankful! We truly are blessed with an AH-MAZE-ING family! BOTH the A's and the U's are truly awesome! Hold on while I take a time out to be Thankful........

Yep, THANKFUL!

Now here is a picture of my FAVORITE TURKEY...



Oops! That's The Dadster!!


Source Sadly, I have yet to go there!
This is my second FAVE TURKEY! The one and only Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade turkey!

Now ya'll need to make me and/or my blog famous! Coco NEEEEEEEDDDSSS to be in the parade. Dare I saw I would even dress as a clown and hold one of their GI-NORM-OUS balloons, if it meant that I could walk down Central Park West on my way to Harold Square. I DARE...but I would rather not! 


As promises, I am not skipping Thanksgiving decorations this year. Sis once again took this weeks pictures. She couldn't figure out the camera and I was upstairs snug and a bug in my bed, so we opted for the Iphone route. Don't fault her kids...She is learning!


We reused the burlap from Mama and The Dadster's 40th anni party and made PUMPKINS! So cute!




This is a little cart in my the kitchen that sis arranged with cute white pumpkins and gourds.
 

FYI We bought these mercury pumpkins to sell but changed our mind. Another occupational hazard! The are so cute so I'm sure you don't blame us.
 
 
 
This is a half globe. Yep, I bought half of a globe at a market AND  I was totally made fun of for buying it. Now please add to the record that after I bought this, sis said she saw something like this at Pottery Barn.
 
FYI I couldn't find the pictures but sis did show it to me. I believe her, so you should too! :)
 
Since we are having the turkey and the trimmings a week before the actual day, the U's came up with another non-tradition.
 
Don't get me wrong WE WILL BE WATCHING THE PARADE but what should we do for dinner. A call to our go-to holiday restaurant Benihana ended in bitter disappointment. Benihana is only closed ONE DAY A YEAR. Yep you guessed it, it's Thanksgiving Day.
 
Mama and I put our heads together and thought.
A. We need someplace with a gluten free menu
B. We need booze
 
Cooper's Hawk fit both of those categories. I'll let you know how both next weekend and Thanksgiving turn out!
 
As soon as I see this blog has been posted, I will declare the Christmas season to have started and the decorating will begin in FULL FORCE! Also check back for that action!
 
 
 

 If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is 'thank you', that would suffice.
