Sunday Social 
I think I am going to skip this week's Sunday's Sylvia, and be a little bit social! (Also, I know the post title is a bit funky, but I couldn't link up without shortening the title! Or am I just completely computer illiterate? haha!)  So, let's get down to it!

Favorite Thanksgiving Memory:
I don't think that I can pick one specific memory out.  But, just Thanksgiving as a whole is so wonderful.  My family doesn't live too close together, so it's not very often that we all get to hang out together.  It is so great to see everyone together.  It is very loud, and crowded, and delightful.  But, that is what I expect every year, and I have such a great time catching up with everyone!

Favorite Thanksgiving Food: My favorite used to be mashed potatoes (I know, how boring!), but when I became a vegetarian, my mom made me a special side of vegetarian stuffing.  I felt compelled to eat it.  Oh my!  Stuffing is my new favorite!

What is a Thanksgiving Tradition you and your family have?  We have a couple traditions that we do EVERY year:

1.) My aunt is the designated cream puff maker.  The unofficial goal is to eat as many cream puffs as you can before dinner is served.  But, you can't tell anyone you're eating them.  You have to be very sneaky.  Most people (the rookies) get caught from choking on the powdered sugar!
2-3.) Two and three are two-fold.  My mom serves fruit salad.  Everyone jokes that she can get all the bananas out of the salad with one swipe of the spoon.  So, we started a little joke about that, and if someone asks for you to pass something to them (i.e. fruit salad) you have to pass it the long way round the table (this was mostly started so that everyone could get a scoop of the fruit salad before it got to my mom lol).  You can even pass it back around if your the person right before the person asking for it.  It is quite funny and keeps dinner going on forever!

Show us a favorite Thanksgiving picture(or 5) from years past
Is it kind of odd that I don't think I have any pictures of family from Thanksgiving? Hmmm...well enjoy this picture of pumpkin pie (This year, I told my mom I wanted to make the pumpkin pie from scratch...this could be the best idea or I could totally ruin Thanksgiving!  We will see!)

What are you most looking forward to about this Thanksgiving?
My sister and two of my cousins are planning a super special surprise for my family.  We are going to dress up like these characters from this cheesy 80's play we used to watch over and OVER...It should be a big surprise!


  1. Your family has such great Thanksgiving traditions! Our only tradition is to invite old friends and new friends. Nothing quite so cute :P
