Ironically enough, my family is about to leave for my aunt's house to celebrate it as I write this! I'm also planning to play my ukelele there, so that will be fun. Not much of an eater, but I like spending time with my family on Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving! We just do Thanksgiving at our house usually, and our grandparents visit for the day. One of the highlights of the day (besides all the other wonderful amazing food) is the cheesecake--my grandfather always makes cheesecake (actually, usually two and sometimes three) and it is SO GOOD. It's chocolate swirl cheesecake and oh. My. Gosh. It's delicious. We have two (or three) because we all eat it...and there's never enough XD

The thing at my house that there's never enough of is my younger sister's cranberry sauce. She makes it from scratch. Also me (fomerly Grandma's) cheesy mashed potatos.

We rarely leave the house for Thanksgiving. This year it was just us and Dad's friend Mr. D, who is practically family.

YES! My mom makes cranberry sauce from scratch too. And I LOVE cheesy mashed potatoes, although we just make normal mashed potatoes and I'll make cheesy mashed potatoes with the leftovers. It's so goooood

Happy belated Thanksgiving y'all! It's a 2-hour drive to grandma's from here, but it's worth the hike. :)

I love Thanksgiving! especially the food, I love the stuffing, and potatoes,  and the sweet potato casserole, and the green bean casserole, pretty much all of it. Although I'm not a big fan of turkey, it's okay but chicken's better, that's probably why we only eat it like once a year. Every Thanksgiving we have pie for dessert and this year I got to help my grandma make them, I got to make the whole pecan pie and the pumkin pie filling (I made extra and got to just eat it, it was really good), when we make pie and have extra crust my grandma will put it in the oven with cinnamon and sugar and it's super good. On Thanksgiving we go to church in the morning and then go to my grandparents' for the rest of the day. We watch the Macy's parade, then the dog show, then we eat lunch/dinner, then we watch the Lion's football game (they were leading the whole game this year but ended up losing by 3 :(    ) then we play board games, then my little cousins and I play together, then for supper we just put all the leftovers in a bowl (besides dessert and sweet potatoes) and microwave them, I honestly like the supper more than lunch/dinner because the food all tastes so good together and it's more relaxing, then we play some more games before going home for the night. Sorry that was really long and rambly, I didn't take much time to write it.

Question: Does anyone else sometimes call  lunch dinner and then dinner supper? on Sunday's and holidays I call the midday meal dinner and the evening meal supper, because according to my grandparents dinner is the big meal of the day, not the evening meal, that's supper but we normally call it dinner because it's our largest meals, but on Sundays and holidays the midday meal is the largest.
