We don't have many Thanksgiving traditions because we are usually gone for the holiday. We usually go to Jeff's family and have a huge dinner with all the extended family.
On years past I have made a meal with everyones favorite foods, but I don't plan to continue that tradition.
Otherwise, we have our thankful box. It's not actually a box, oddly enough. It's a pitcher, decorated, with a lid. It's inside of a big wooden box though. It's our tradition that works for us.
Whenever the mood strikes a member of our family they write on a slip of paper what they are thankful for. Then place it in the "box".
The first chance we get after Thanksgiving, we read from the slips. So we have a years worth of things to be thankful for.
We sure do get some funny ones.
This year we are going to dig up our time capsule that we buried 2-3 years ago. Since we are going to move this will probably be our last Thanksgiving here. We buried it as part of our celebration and want to dig it up then too. Pray we can find it. The map wasn't very thorough.
Please let me know what you do for Thanksgiving traditions. We need more.
