If you are still following along our 12 Day Countdown is nearly done.
#3- Hopefully by now, you've planned out your menu and maybe even price matched it at Walmart; found some new traditions, traded some recipes and baked some wonderful cookies. You table decor should be on its way, so now the kids should be entertained, and you've maybe even become more thankful for what you have by helping someone else. My, you've been busy. Today, take a rest, read a book, go for a walk, write a list of what you are thankful for. You've earned a break.
#2- Don't forget to remember. Get out a camera and take pictures of your events. If the whole family is getting together now may be a good time to photograph generations together or siblings together, or children and grandchildren in one happy group. One of the coolest pictures I've ever seen is my cousin with his mom, grandma, great-grandma and great-great grandma. I don't know how many people are able to do that.
#1- Have Fun doing whatever you are doing on Thanksgiving. Sometimes all the planning outweighs the people. Plan ahead and have things ready, but enjoy what you are doing. This is an opportunity to reconnect with loved ones you may not have seen for awhile. Indulge in pumpkin pie and good conversation. You'll make memories to last a lifetime.
