I have always loved Thanksgiving. Growing up my parents hosted our family dinners, and still do now. We invite family from both nearby reservations and have always had a large gathering of family, friends, food, fun and games.
It has been a tradition to eat at 2pm. Then we visit and play games for the rest of the afternoon. It is not unusual for family members to stay until 9 or 10 pm.
What I am thinking is I might have to buy 2 roasts. One to make the traditional way and one to make a new way. (Just in case, I don’t like the new way.)
We have been working on a simple Christmas song with our Princess this week: We Wish You A Merry Christmas. She loves it. In fact, she really loves singing. Part of her homeschool has now included learning new songs. In the last two weeks she has learned, “I’m a Little Teapot” and “He’s Able“. I will have to upload her singing one of those soon!
And of course, when the sun goes down on Friday, we celebrate family time by putting up our Christmas tree together. I just love this time of year!
What are some of your great Thanksgiving traditions? I’d love to hear them.
